Beautiful cutter with excellent layout and interior/exterior condition. This double cabin pilothouse design has the perfect balance of exterior deck and cockpit space as well as livable interior layout. Eco-friendly with a Zero Discharge waste system allowing for full exploration in the strictest sailing regions. It was repowered with a factory remanufactured Ford-Lehman 135hp diesel in 2009, which is an upgrade from the standard 90hp. She is a thick hull and the weight allows for a steady sail and smooth ride. The double-end design gives a good ride in many different conditions.
Sails include a large Lee Yankee cut jib(Dacron 6oz 480 area), an Ulmer self-tacking staysail(Dacron 6oz 219 area), and a Quantum mainsail(Dacron 9oz 401 area).
The current owner has loved and maintained it for 8 years. The primary electrical system wiring has been replaced, LED lighting installed and a 3000-watt Xantrex inverter system installed. A fresh battery bank was installed in August 2018. There is hydraulic steering! Also an electric windlass, a 45lb CQR anchor and 180 feet of galvanized chain.
The aft cabin has a privacy door, Pullman double-berth on the starboard side, good headroom, lots of storage and a bench on the port side. Lots of ventilation with side and top hatches.
The main salon features beautiful natural lighting with wraparound windows...imaging the view from your favorite mooring! There is abundant storage along the starboard side and under the nice dinette lounger which also converts to a double berth. The entry stairwell curves down and has a beautiful handrail. All the wood is in good condition. 6ft 5 inch headroom too!
Forward of the salon is the spacious galley and a large navigation station. The galley has an updated Isotherm freezer and fridge. There is also a separate icebox, double basin sink, gimbaled microwave, induction hotplate and a conduction/convection/infrared oven.
A private head with separate shower stall has an eco-friendly Nature's Head, a good amount of counter space and a manual sink and shower for water conservation.
The forward cabin has its own privacy door, a double-berth and good amount of storage.
