About this Sailboat:
Sisu is a 1984 Nauticat 36 Cutter Ketch, Finnish built with solid hull and decks. I cut a larger hole for a new solar powered vent last summer and was simply amazed at the thickness of the hull and the teak on the deck – astonishing. Lots of upgrades in recent years, some new equipment on the boat still waiting to be installed – Ive been knocking things off the list one at a time for the last two years, starting with the hidden infrastructure things and leaving some of the cosmetic stuff for later. Ive been well up to date on all filters, oils, antifreeze, zincs, bottom paint, etc. Plenty of spare parts on board, too.
This boat has not been sitting – weve sailed her and spent more than a month living on her each of the past two years. If you are already familiar with Nauticats, then you know what a gem these yachts are. If you are new to them, then welcome – youll be amazed. There is a very active owners association online – lots of folks offering advice and their experience. Two different U.S. businesses supply parts for the Lehman super 90. She sails great.
