    There is a large aft cockpit with a standard helm.     Cushions are on every seat and there is a Magma Propane grill to cook your burgers and dogs.

     Stepping below, you are amazed by the amount of space.  To port is the aft cabin with a separate locker and a double bunk.  This cabin can be closed off with a set of doors, or left open to the salon.  To starboard is a linear galley with a deep sink, a two burner stove, and a refrigerator.  Lots of storage abounds in this boat.

     Moving Forward, you see a large settee to starboard and the dinette to port.  Of particular note is that there is an oversized table that allows the dinette to turn into a sizable bunk area.  When you look up you see the newly done headliner.  This $4,000 option helps set this boat apart for level of care and feeling of confidence in her overall condition.  

     At the forward end of the salon is an AC/DC TV and DVD player.  as well as a newer AMFM Bluetooth stereo.  

There is a large head forward and to port with a newer head that was replaced in 2015.  

Moving forward again you come to the large V Berth area.  The cushions look fantastic and there is lots of natural light here.  

     Something that most people would miss is the sheer amount of storage space on board.  Her owners have stocked up with lots of spares to include a spare prop.

She comes complete, ready to sail, cast off the lines and just go. 

Broker's Comments

     I sat down with the couple that owns this boat and started to write down all that they have done for the boat and how she has been sailed.  I came away with a sense of great pride of ownership from the couple about this great classic sailboat.  Normally a couple can give me about a half page of what they have done.  This couple gave me two pages worth of all the love that they have put into this great little boat

     He said "This is my get a away".

     She said "It is romantic in the evening sitting outside watching the sunset".


About selling this prized member of the family, he stated "that is one Cadillac of an anchor" and she said that "Everything from the band aids to the sewing kit is going.  Her new owner will want for nothing".


The list of improvements is so long, I will email it to any seriously interested buyer who contacts me.
