About this Sailboat:

This trailerable cruiser, built in 1989 by Hutchins Co., Inc., of Clearwater, FL, is a nicely executed, sturdy hull, with a long, shallow-(draws 2’3″) draft, airfoil keel, a sensible sail plan, and a well-supported, 8-stay rig. It is tiller-steered, with a Honda 10hp auxiliary outboard. With the roller-furling headsail controls led aft to the cockpit, it can be easily handled by one or more persons, and is extremely stable, with 1,340 lbs of concrete ballast in the keel. The fiberglass hull and decks are in good condition. With berth accommodations for 4 people, it is well laid out above and below decks for cruising, having 6 oval, opening, bronze portholes, with screens; a fore-deck hatch and vent; pull-out galley sink, with 11-gallon water storage; pull-out propane stove;, and bulkhead-mount table. The stainless steel stern rail and bow pulpit anchor the vinyl-covered lifelines, adding to the security of the passengers in all situations. The bow pulpit roller makes dropping and recovering the anchor easier and safer. This boat has only been sailed in freshwater.

Equipment on Board:

Dual-wheel, galvanized trailer, with winch.
