1986 Custom 42 Schooner Sailboat in Old Saybrook, Connecticut

Stock #117852

This unique vessel is a robust offshore capable vessel set up for the experienced single-handed sailor or a couple interested in economical long distance coastal cruising "off the grid". The shallow draft (4.5ft) and long keel makes it an ideal Intercoastal waterway vessel and allows access to many shallow areas and anchorages normally inaccessible to vessels of this size.

Thomas Colvin designed this vessel for his own use for extended offshore cruising.(see his book "Cruising Wrinkles"). Anchor setup to facilitate "anchoring out". The vessel is very "quiet" when laying to the anchor-less rolling, pitching and "sailing" than other vessels in the anchorage. Extended range under power is possible with approximately 60 gallons in keel tank.

An additional 15 gallons in a day tank an optional 50 additional gallons on deck. Fuel to the engine is filtered by high capacity diesel fuel filters to assure only water free and clean fuel is supplied to the engine.
