We are proud to label this boat sold.
If this old girl could talk! The places she's been and the sights she must have seen. This boat needs a savior, someone who sees the beauty in its design and the possibilities for the future. The previous owner states the boat was hauled and $30,000 worth of work performed about 3 years ago. The work was done where the boat is currently birthed.
The previous owner lived on the boat for 3 years working on it as a retirement project. Health forced him to sell it. The boat has a new set of batteries, a Kubota 7kw Diesel generator with only 50 hours. There is also an engine-driven generator. The 6 cylinder turbocharged Perkins diesel appears in great shape with new parts. The engine had no oil leaks at all that I could see, the bilge was oil-free. The previous owner said that the engine runs strong, but there is a drip leak on the fuel distribution manifold that should be looked at. It has a 3 bladed prop and a spare prop. An AC system is installed and appears to be a new installation.
The boat comes with 8 sails, roller genny, staysail, main and mizzen, and various storm sails. The previous owner states they are in excellent condition. All water lines from the forward shower to amidships have been replaced.
The workmanship on the wood interior is first-rate. But there are lots of stains and some fungus growing from all the water leaks. The plastic sheets in the interior are attempts to direct the water leaks into the bilge rather than on the cabinetry. The teak decks need some work but are in overall good condition. The standing rigging is very heavy-duty and in good shape. The owner states that they spent $10,000 on all new cushions.
The previous owner said he'd be willing to chat with a serious buyer and go over what he knows about the boat.
This boat is a total project, with lots of rot in the cabin structure and lots of leaks. It showed in an inspection that the boat has one or more rotted frames. The hull will need major repairs. The mizzen boom would need to be replaced. The main boom has been replaced with a quality aluminum unit.
