Detailed Vessel Description

Whether you're piloting from its roomy cockpit under the shade of the bimini, or from the protection of the pilothouse helm with its 360° visibility, you'll always be able to sail in comfort and confidence. Roller furling on both the main and its 150 Genoa, two-speed, self-tailing winches, hydraulic steering, auto-helm and updated electronics aid in both its ease and safety of sailing. The boat also comes with plenty of safety equipment and ground tackle, a working jib and a reacher-drifter for those long down-wind runs, and a 10' inflatable dinghy with outboard!
This boat's interior is full of classic styling, with beautiful woodwork and teak and holly sole. Just two steps down from the cockpit and you're in its bright and spacious pilothouse with plenty of headroom. Two more steps down and you're in the salon/galley area. Just forward are the head and a private forward cabin. The boat easily sleeps 6, so it makes a great boat to cruise with family or guests aboard. Her large top-loading fridge and 3-burner range with oven are other features that make it perfect for that North Channel cruise or for harbor-hopping.
If you're shopping for a great cruising sailboat but have never considered a pilothouse, you need to take a look at Hot Fudge to fully appreciate all she has to offer.

POP Yachts has partnered with Boat History Report® to provide history reports on all or most of our vessels for sale.

History Reports include accident data collected from public and private sources throughout the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. These accidents are reported to Boat History Report and then entered into our database. Boat History Report's Accident Database also includes minor accidents. However, we don't have information on all accidents, which is why it is stated on all History Reports: All accidents are not reported to Boat History Report. Therefore, it is recommended that a complete inspection or survey be completed by a professional before consummating a purchase.
