WHY SELL THE BOAT?
I am selling the boat because I need a smaller and shallower draft boat for where I live.
 

 

HISTORY
 

Three owners to date. First owner was on the USA Great Lakes and after two years sailed the boat to the Chesapeake Bay, USA.

The second owner was a U.S. Congressional Electronics Lobbyist who lived on the Chesapeake Bay area and he sailed the boat on several extended trips north to the state of Maine, and south to the Bahamas.

I have owned the boat since 2006 and have sailed it all over the Chesapeake Bay, to Bermuda, to BVI (many islands), Anguilla, St. Thomas, St. Barts, Antigua, Nevis, St. Kitts, Sint Eustacious, Panama, Galapagos, French Marquis, Cook Islands, Tonga, and on to New Zealand and then all over NZ.

Sold once recently but buyer could not sell home due to economic down turn and could not consummate purchase.

Damaged in early 2008 when a certified mooring line broke after a week of 120 Km. Per hour winds. The boat drug through a congested harbor, washed into a shallow area in early morning hours and rolled on side as tide went out. The boat took on some water and as a result NZ Insurance replaced the engine, batteries, rewired the boat, recertified all of the electronics, replaced the heaters, pumps, and in fact took the entire boat apart inclusive of the keel and reseated it. So as a result of this accident the boat is literally up to date on all technologies, all safety issues, and in fact is substantially better than when new in 1984.

Best of Design type in the world, Ready to go anywhere now. Primo!
