About this Sailboat:

“BIRD” is intended for coastal cruising and is outfitted for self reliance.

75 watts of solar power and Yamaha 9.9 4-stroke engine with alternator keep the simple electronics charged and ready.

She has sailed as far as St. Augustine, FL. and back to the northern outer banks both on the ICW and overnight offshore legs, and is fully capable of cruising the Bahamas. This is the centerboard design, the center board cable has been replaced during last haul out {winter 2012}.

Rigged for single handing, all lines lead aft to cockpit, a pleasure to sail. Also during 2012 haul out: new topside paint and bottom paint, new heavy duty bow chainplate and pulpit, new custom salon table and cabinets.

Bird has been home for 9 years and two of us have lived aboard together for 3 years. She is meant to be sailed, this is not a boat to be moored or docked and left to neglect, please only adventurous souls need inquire.

Equipment on Board:

Comes with:
2 mainsails;4 jibs; tp100 tiller pilot;
new Ritchie compass;

stainless arch on stern houses solar panels and other nautical necessities;
new ash tiller w/ spare;

propane sea stove (gimballed)
