About this Sailboat:
Designed by the late great Bill Crealock and introduced by Pacific Seacraft in 1984, the Dana, at only 24 feet on deck, is perhaps the consummate pocket cruiser. The boat combines traditional styling with the kind of keen craftsmanship and solid construction upon which Pacific Seacraft built its reputation.
Like all good boats, the Dana 24 is well balanced, fast for her size and seakindly. Her shallow draft allows for exploration in cruising grounds larger yachts cannot, and her design, now over 25 years old, is well proven with a number of ocean crossings to her credit. Yet for all her offshore capabilities she is one of a select few that can go home on a trailer.
This example has seen light use for most of her life she has been used in saltwater early in her life before arriving in Lake Superior. Medication time is on a very heavy duty custom trailer and has an ingenious mast raising system for getting underway. The present owners have outfitted her for extended cruising with a high output alternator and new AGM batteries. The boat has always been stored inside for the winters until last year when a new custom storage cover was made – and of course the cover will be included with the boat. Take a look at this one and you will not be disappointed.
