The outstanding excellent design and superb condition of WANDERER has been rewarded with some unique selective charters recently. The newly photographed international clothing catalog of Ralph Lauren in the Bahamas, the filming of a very successful TV series in New York City, as well as other widely recognized clothing catalog photo sessions have created a fantastic income source for this widely recognized Ted Hood design….An image of understated elegance, one that will continue into the future with WANDERER and serve the next owner for years to come.  Few sailing designs have transcended time like the Little Harbor Yachts have and the looks, performance, (Marion to Bermuda class winner) and quality of Wanderer will set the standard in yacht design for many years to come. In recent years, Wanderer has undergone a complete refit in various stages, and this has created the finest Little Harbor 62 to be offered for sale at any time.

If fast, comfortable family cruising or a continuation of Wanderer’s unique and profitable charter capabilities fit into your future plans, come to Ft. Lauderdale and get aboard….it will be a visit that you will remember for years to come, and one that will add to your enjoyment and appreciation of the elegant sailing life!

Remarks & Overview of Recent Major Refit Items
During 2009, after multiple survey and engineering overviews, Wanderer underwent a most extensive underwater blister repair process, to  correct a previously applied repair process, completed in 2006. In 2009, under the direction and subsequent inspection of an engineer/naval architect who was originally involved in the construction of Little Harbor vessels, the bottom was completely peeled of the outer laminate and faring, dried and resealed with West System G/Flex epoxy, then re laminated with fiberglass cloth and epoxy. After this process, all through hull fittings were reinstalled and the final 3000 barrier coat was applied, yielding an underwater repair seldom equaled on composite hull laminates and one that far exceeds ABS thickness standards for offshore racing yachts
Broker's Comments
Over the past five years, Wanderer has had well over $1,000,000 invested into practically every category to bring her up to the absolutely fantastic condition that she is in today! For decades, these elegant Ted Hood designed performance cruisers have established a standard that few other builders have been able to equal, and if this design fits your sailing needs, you do not need to look further, just get aboard and do a close will not be disappointed. The constant updating of Wanderer includes, but is not limited to the following significant categories:  Painting of entire topsides, replacement of teak decking, complete peel/drying/ and relaminating of the bottom, recent sails, electronics, windlass, interior soft goods, canvas, cushions, and always fresh varnish...the list goes on and should be seen in the complete listing.
