1939 Kunston 26 Weekender Sailboat in Francestown, New Hampshire

Stock #227285

Beautiful classic wooden/glass sailboat on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH.

The Miriam Elizabeth has been featured in Sailing magazines about her re-birth and custom finish. It was built in C1939, the second owner had two shipwrights rebuild it over a two-period by sealing the hull in five layers of fiberglass and customer making all of the brightwork Honduras mahogany.

She is a forgiving boat for how well she sails and handles in all weather. She has been clocked at 6.7 knots and is extremely stable in 25k winds. The ease of sailing comes from not having to leave the cockpit because she is fitted with a roller furling.

Information On Condition

There is an 8 HP Yamaha electric start motor in the well. The boat and hatch covers are covered with Sunbrella. It is outfitted with one mainsail on a tall mast, three jibs, and one roller furling.
The Classic wood/glass boat is dry and has a self-bailing cockpit.
There are two new bilge pumps.
The boat has been maintained and in the garage out offseason. The owner has a unique system to raise the boat so he can paint the hull where the boat stands are.
The electrical panel for depth/speed, running and cabin lights are all in good working order. It has a ship to shore radio also works well.
