General Details

 The hull was built by Built Custom Steel Boats in Arapahoe North Carolina in 1991.  The interior was completed by the Owner and the boat was then launched in 1996.  I consider Pendragon a project boat at this time.   But with about $500 worth of welding you could put her in the water and sail her away.  However, to make her truly ready to sail around the world again, you would need to ultra sound the hull to determine if the full condition of the hall and then  sand blast and treat the inside and outside for corrosion from the water line down.    You would need to replace or rebuilt the rudder and repair a few bad spots on the hull.  In order to san blast the inside of the hull you will need to remove the interior.   The hull is fully insulated above the waterline.  The boat returned from South America in the fall of 2006 and set behind the owners house with no maintenance done until Jan 2014 when I acquired her. Again, this is a project boat, that needs work, but for the price it is a steal.

She comes as a cutter rig with dual Profurl systems for the head sail and the stay sail, and a in mast roller furling mainsail.  A 65 HP Perkins diesel, 5 KW Northern Lights generator, 16000 BTU Reverse cycle air conditioning, cold plate refrigeration, 3 burner propane stove, manual windlass, 6 man offshore life raft (Needs update service) custom SS Dinghy davits and radar arch, Radar, autopilot, and much much more.  Asking price is $30,000 but all offers will be considered.  

Take a look at the pictures and If you have specific questions or want more pictures just call me at 252-571-3505. 


Starting in the front you have a large V Berth coming aft to port you have a very large hanging closet.  To starboard you have the head and shower. Next aft to starboard is a U shaped settee with a large folding dining table. To port you have a single settee.  Aft of that you have a washer and dryer combo and next you have the nav station.  The galley is to starboard with a large double SS sink.  Next aft is a large freezer in and a large food prep area.  Further back is a double center line bed and a sink with pressure water.  There is storage throughout the boat.
THIS IS A PROJECT BOAT!!! It would only take one plate about 3" X 5" to be welded onto the hull and you can put this boat in the water and motor or sail her away.  But to fix her right and to make her last you need to remove a fair amount of the interior and sand blast the hull from the water line down, both on the inside and outside.  While I have tapped on the hull very good with a small hammer and everything sounded very good except 3 small areas (Nothing more than a couple of square inches) you would need to ultrasound the hull to know if there are any other places that would need attention.  The rudder does need to be rebuilt.  The metal skin on the frame has rusted through in several places.  While it is useable now it will need to be done before any major trips.  The boat was cruised by the previous Owners until  the fall of 2006.  They came back from South America, parked the boat behind their house, and never used her again.  The engine smokes some when you first start her up but after a couple of minutes it clears up fairly good.  The generator runs great and does not smoke.  She has 16000 BTU reverse cycle Air Conditioning, Adler Barbour refrigerator, 3000 watt inverter, Under deck autopilot, VHF radios (2), anchors, and much more, Put a little sweat equity in this boat and you world have a world cruiser again. Please call me with any questions you may have.
