UPDATE 2018 Jul 25:  We are motivated to sell.  If you are interested in a very solid and capable blue water boat with traditional lines, then this might be the boat for you.  If you are just looking for a coastal cruiser, then she fits that bill as well.  We always got compliments on her as we headed out into the bay.

UPDATE 2018 Jun 26:  The listing now includes an iPad with waterproof Lifedge case, a Scanstrut mount for the iPad that is on the steering pedestal, a Skypro XGPS160 Bluetooth GPS, Navionics on the iPad with charts of the whole Gulf Coast and Caribbean.  See pics in the gallery.  The head has new varnish as do the toerails and cockpit coaming.

UPDATE 2018 Apr 03:  We are in the process of redoing all the brightwork inside and out.  There are currently galley pics showing the updated varnish in the galley.  New pics will be posted as we finish areas.

The layout follows the traditional and classic sailboat layout with the V-berth forward, fitted with a foam mattress, hanging locker, dresser drawers, privacy door, and a private door to the bathroom/head that is aft to port that can also be accessed easily from the main cabin via a guest access door.

The main cabin features a settee/dinette with a fold-up dinette table on the port side. The settee can also serve as a single guest berth or pulls out to a double berth. There is another settee opposite on the starboard side that can also serve as a single berth. There is abundant storage beneath and behind both settees. The cabin sole is a rich teak & holly and the interior woodwork is done in mahogany.

The galley is aft to starboard and is fully equipped for preparing meals while underway or dockside.

The aft quarter berth is on the port side aft of the navigation station.
