About this Sailboat:

Rare opportunity to own a pristine example of this highly sought after European classic. Bullet proof hull, designed and built by the renowned Coneyplex yard in Holland to survive the North Sea. All systems, rigging, and equipment upgraded within the last five years. Current owner in sixth year of living aboard and ready to move to larger boat. Beautiful varnished mahogany interior with solid teak sole. Fresh upholstery, new refrigeration, rebuilt stove with oven, diesel fired two zone hydronic heating keeps you toasty and also gives unlimited hot water. All lines led to cockpit though ingenious stainless channel. Internal lead ballast is safe and secure. New dodger with Stratoglass and side and aft grab rails (2008). Overbuilt deck-stepped spar and rugged standing rigging give confidence. Simply too much done to list. Ready for hassle free daysailing, coastal cruising, or crossing oceans!!
