Stock #163984

Also, the boat has some mildew on the interior and exterior that needs to be cleaned.

The seller will consider offers for the boat "as is, where is".

Imagine you and your partner beginning your next big adventure ....heading northeast through the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal into Long Island Sound.

Perhaps you venture a bit Downeast to taste the waters of the Gulf of Maine before you travel up the Hudson into the Erie Canal and continue on with the Great Loop.

Well, this boat has been there and done that!! This popular center cockpit ketch is truly special since she has had only three owners since new. She has all of the features needed for a comfortable great lakes, coastal or Caribbean cruiser.

She is well equipped with everything a family could want when connected to shore power or spending time on the hook. Her refrigeration, heating and air conditioning systems make for comfortable time on the slip or on the hook.

When you throw off her lines. she can take you across oceans or gunkholing in your favorite places with her shallow draft.
