This is a blue-water sailors boat. There is plenty of room inside for the owner, guests, and crew. Seller states 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.
There is plenty of room in the cockpit, and the cockpit 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 bimini canvas and doghouse cover need repair from sun deterioration. The mainsail 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 appears to be 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 a lot of cosmetic TLC but is ready to sail now.. The wood trim needs attention, and there are leaks around the windows in several places. Expect a lot of work to bring this back to good condition.
The bimini canvas has deteriorated and has been removed
