About this Sailboat:
1969 contest for sale.
This classic cruising boat was built in the Netherlands meant to sail in the northern sea. She is a very sturdy boat, believe it or not the first owner sailed it from the Netherlands to New York in 1971 but shes still very fast & easy to sail even single handedly. I never had any issues sailing even in rough weather on Lake Michigan. She is in good shape 4 the age & I added a lot of upgrades. Very comfortable cabin with mahogany wood & a lot of storage compartments, sink, ice cooler & a 7 ft long v berth.
