1986 Aloha Yachts 8.5 Sloop in Pawcatuck, Connecticut

Stock #296237

Classic Ted Brewer designed Aloha 8.5 cruising sloop. Canadian built traditional modified fin cruiser with auxiliary Westerbeke diesel in nice condition.

The partially restored sloop has had most of the heavy work done and is ready to be enjoyed now while remaining projects are completed as desired. The engine was seen to start easily and run well.

Good sail inventory with good condition 110 headsail on endless line furler and original main in serviceable condition. The main has 2 reefing points and halyard leading aft for easy single/short handed sailing.

The boat has a newer custom-made dodger with stainless steel frame and grab rails. Clear forward eisenglass and an attachable sunshade included - great when at anchor to increase onboard comfort. Double lifelines offer secure access getting around topsides.

Below is large and open with numerous opening hatches. The layout is traditional with a forward cabin offering a V-berth and storage areas. Aft of that is an enclosed head to port with hanging locker to starboard. The toilet has been removed but the black water tank remains. Unit could be replaced with another MSD or composting toilet.

Further aft is a large salon with opposing settees (port converts to double bunk), bulkhead mounted table, galley aft with sink and large icebox. The stove has been removed and a propane one is offered in its stead. The boat offers large interior volume for the age and size of the boat.

The cockpit is comfortable with full-length settees and cushions. Self-tailing primary winches are port and starboard with a newer traveler at the aft end of the cockpit. There is a short tiller to the stern mounted rudder. A newer GPS plotter is present on a mount at the front of the cockpit.

Overall she presents well as a comfortable cruiser and is reported to perform well and handle comfortably in a wide variety of conditions. If you are looking to move up to a cruising sailboat with diesel for a minimal investment, this could be a great opportunity.

Information On Condition

The seller reports the systems to be in good working order. The main electrical system has been rewired with a new panel and battery switch and sails are in good order. Additionally, the shaft and cutlass bearing were replaced. Buyers are encouraged to make their own inspections to confirm condition.
