    About this Sailboat:

    This boat is the perfect south Florida cruising live aboard. Roomy cabin and shallow draft allows for exploration in the Keys, Bahammas and gulf coast. Interior is very cozy with lots of wood and comfortable layout with enclosed head. Boat sails easily single handed or with a crew member. Hate to part with this classy lady but plans change. We have continually maintained her and upgraded or simplified the systems during our ownership. New bottom paint with e2000 epoxy undercoat in 2010. Main mast refit in 2009 with new paint, full inspection and new rigging. Regular oil and filter changes on the engine, runs great. This boat needs someone to care for and enjoy her as we did since we no longer have the time.
