About this Sailboat:
46 Ft Creekmore Project Sailboat
Estate Sale Item
The former owner of this Creekmore 46 ft Center Cockpit GRP fixed keel sailboat succumbed to a protracted illness before completing construction. This boat was designed to be a do it yourself project that when completed would allow him and his wife to sail in waters throughout the World. The boat was purchased as a hull and has had the main components installed and is ready for gelcoat and interior finishing and rigging. This boat is truly a diamond in the rough.

LOA: 45′ 5
LWL: 33′ 3
Beam: 13′ 0
