General Details

LANCER has just had a huge refit.  She is a beautiful customized Sou'wester 51 highlighted with teak and set up to provide hours of shorthanded or extended cruising comfort and enjoyment.  This was our Hinckley "Cover Brochure" boat into the early 90's. Turn-key and priced to sell now.


LANCER  beautifully stands out in any harbor.  She is custom "classic yacht" styled, engineered and equipped for comfortable shorthanded and extended cruising.  Her custom highlights such as bright-varnished cabin sides and cockpit coamings, teak decks, butterfly skylight make her easy to spot and her American White Ash custom-finished interior sleeps 7.  She is a beautiful boat.
