1979 Formosa 47 Ketch Sailboat in Vallejo, California

Stock #174383

This is one of the most beautiful sailboats from the 1970s we have ever listed. When you walk up to this Formosa, it's size and beauty are immediately apparent.

The hull is made of 19mm thick fiberglass and the decks are sandwich construction. The aluminum main and mizzen masts provide the reliability out at sea that many sailors prefer over a wooden mast. Up front, there are two anchors, which make anchoring in tough conditions a lot easier. The center cockpit is a fabulous place to enjoy a day of sailing from.

Down below the salon is open and spacious. The upholstery is in great condition and the galley is well equipped.

The marquee feature of this Formosa is it's aft stateroom with a queen-sized island bed, private head and large hanging closet.

Also off the main salon is a work area for tools and working on projects that is adjacent to the engine room.

Forward of the salon is stateroom with a side berth and a head. All the way forward is a storage area for sails and other gear.

Overall, this is a true bluewater sailboat with the space and comfort for cruising around the world that is fantastic.

Dinghy included: 2016 Inflatable with 8HP Engine

Information On Condition

The Formosa appears in good condition. The standing rigging, running rigging and sails all look in good condition and the boat is sailed by the current owner.

The exterior wood has recently been varnished and looks incredible. The bowsprit is rotted as can be seen in the pictures. A new one is being made and the new one will be put on the boat prior to it being sold.

There are some areas where the fiberglass is being repaired by the owner and the fiberglass repairs will be done prior to it being sold. Some of the interior wood has water damage but is currently dry.

The upholstery is in great condition. We're told all equipment and appliances on the boat work as they should.
