    • Painted flat black steel trailer custom built for this specific boat. (I am currently bringing trailer up to date with fresh paint, lights, tires, etc

    This boat was purchased by a former neighbor of mine in 1993 from the Buzzards Bay Shop. It was used lightly only two seasons and subsequently stored until I purchased it from the estate in 2010. If you are looking for a daysailer with beautiful classic lines and teak work without the wood hull upkeep issues then this boat is ideal. People always stop by to praise this vessel. Very stable sailing characteristics (the solid full length lead keel combined with modest sail area means she will easily handle any stiff breeze and point nicely). Very easy to rig/derig and load onto the trailer.

    I have back issues and just won’t be able to hang onto her anymore. Please go the manufacturers web site to find additional details. I can be reached at (# removed) or for further information.
