Full keel, cutaway forefoot

Boat had sat on a trailer for 20 years and was just completely rebuilt over the last 6 months

New hatches and bow pulpit

New Pettit Trinidad pro bottom paint

All deck hardware removed prior to painting and rebedded

Old merriman winches rebuilt

New seacocks and thru hulls

New plumbing (including sink, scuppers, washdown pump, bilge pump, whale gusher foot pump for the sink, 14 gal fresh water tank under vee birth)

New iron wood compression post

Wired from scratch… Icom VHF with new antenna, Garmin monochrome GPS with chip for south florida, hummingbird depth sounder/fish finder not currently installed but can be included

new interior lights, anchor light, running lights, prostar ps15m solar controller (solar panel coming soon, will not be sold without one)

“inside outboard” in motor well, twin 5 gallon saddle tanks, all new fuel system (3 way tank selector switch and fuel water separator)

Fresh wood trim and paint on the interior, vee cushions are original, not exactly pretty but very serviceable, no cushions for the quarter births currently

Aluminum mast has new aluminum spreaders and all running rigging is new, 2 mains and 3 jibs (hank ons) two sets of sail are rather worn but very serviceable, one jib is almost new, beautiful spruce boom stripped and revarnished

Mainsail cover and bimini top in good shape

Equipment on Board:

I have been using the boat with a 15 hp but that is really too big so I don’t want to include it in the sale, bring your own 5-9.9 hp and be off…

Asking $5500 obo, $6500 obo with the trailer,

Will entertain reasonable offers and interesting smaller trades with some cash (i.e. compact 16, Victoria 18, skipper 20)…

This boat is a joy to look at and to sail, I wish I could keep it but I need to sell it so I can finish restoring my 1963 30’ allied seawind…

Boat is currently on a mooring in West Palm Beach, Fl, come sail it, you will buy it
