This is a blue-water sailors boat. There is plenty of room inside for owner, guests, and crew. What sets this boat off is its obvious solidness, even at its current age. Most systems have had upgrades as recently as 2010. These upgrades include new wiring, new running and standing gear, and a new 110 HP Yanmar diesel engine. All engine information was provided by the seller.
Although the boat is older and the wood trim needs some TLC, the materials appear in excellent condition, and some cosmetic attention will make this boat a gem in classic nautical terms.
There is plenty of room in the cockpit, but the cockpit is shallow which is excellent for offshore sailing. The boat has a solid tiller but is augmented by an effective NavMan autopilot. All sheets and halyards are in fair to good condition. All winches, fairleads, and blocks work well.
The canvas bimini and doghouse cover need repair from sun deterioration. The main sail may need some sun damage repair. The are StakPak lazy jacks for easy sail handling. The furling/reefing genoa functions as a jib. The standing gear is oversized or redundant for offshore sailing. The vessel has a powered windlass and a choice of three anchors for various anchoring conditions.
The owner says that he likes the fact that because of its shallow draft it is Bahamas-friendly, and because of its 63' mast height he can pass under most bridges. This could be an excellent boat for a live-aboard family or a serious cruising family.
This is a solid boat with upgraded systems. It is an open water sailboat that a less experienced sailor can feel safe in and that an experienced sailor can enjoy even when the weather pipes up a bit. The boat is ready for some cosmetic TLC but is ready to sail confidently now.
