The Hudson Force 50 is a full keeled pilothouse cutter ketch that was built in Taiwan in the early '80s. This boat was built on the same hull as the Formosa 51. This boat was a serious blue water "go anywhere" sailboat in its day, but unfortunately, it's going to take a lot of work to get it back in sailing form.
There is a LOT of teak above and below deck!!
The interior layout has three staterooms, the master is aft with a full head, and two double guest cabins forward with shared head and step-in shower. Pilothouse with inside helm station, and lower saloon with desk. L-shaped settee to starboard going forward to starboard is a double guest cabin and to port is the head and shower. Forward is an upper and lower to starboard, workbench, and cupboards to port.
This Hudson Force 50 is in need of some serious restoration!! The current owner is ill and must sell. The boat has not sailed in at least 8 years.
The owner spent over $100,000 replacing both masts, the rigging, and booms. The jib is new...never hoisted. The two mains are in very good condition. They are all in storage with the cabin cushions.
