General Yacht Description
Comfortable sailing yacht and/or liveaborad designed by the famous Robert Perry. She does not have, and has never had, teak decks and there are no iron tanks aboard -- all tanks are stainless or GRP. The chain plates have been oversized, replaced and any water damaged knees have been rebuilt. The mast is aluminium and keel stepped. Warm and comfortable in the winter using the cozy Dickenson diesel heater, the white decks and insulated deck head make her cool in the summer. An aft cabin with closing door, locker, two portholes and a deck prism is a wonderful addition that provides privacy when two couples are aboard. The varnish work below decks is light and in excellent condition and, when combined with the white overhead panels divided by varnished teak battens, provides for a warm and open feeling down below. The drinking water in both tanks is fresh and the contents rotated regularly. The diesel tanks are polished regularly using a permanently installed sytem with a pickup at the the very bottom of the single 90 gallon tank. This yacht is very well maintained,  regularly used, equipped and ready to cruise both south and north. She will demand regular attention but in return will look after you at sea, will turn heads at the dock and receive unsolicited compliments wherever you go.
