1975 Bayfield 25

18 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

This boat is a beauty: it is sloop-rigged, and features classic lines, plenty of teak trim, and traditional Bayfield mahogany filigree trailerboards. A rare find – only 600 of this model were built by the Bayfield shipyards in 1975. Stable and forgiving, it is the perfect family boat: fully capable of ocean sailing in rough water, although it has been used exclusively in fresh water for the past 8 years. Carefully restored and repainted in 2006, and very trailerable. The hull is sound: no blistering, and does not take on water. The cabin interior is simple, functional and clean. Galley accessories include a two-burner stainless steel Force 10 propane stove, dish and cup storage. The two quarter-berths (aft port and starboard with storage under) and large fore v-berth (head and storage under) are supplied with sea-cushions and will comfortably sleep 4 adults. Cabin headroom is about 6 feet to aft, sloping down towards the fore.
