    About this Sailboat:

    This classic Williams Trimaran is ready to cruise. She is seaworthy enough to cruise worldwide and perfect for Mexico on a budget. Her Construction is plywood over frames and stringers. The endtire exterior is fiberglassed over the plywood. The bilge areas are also glassed. The current owners have updated and refurbished “The Dove” to high standards.

    She has a great feature of stand up sailing without heeling. There is ample living and storage areas inside and out. She is ready to go cruising again as she sits now. With ehr shallow draft, she has the advantage of fitting into just about any bay, harbor or inlet.
