Description

**estate sale**

The classic lines of the famous S&S designed Sunward 48 set her apart from other, more "modern" designs.   Most Sunwards were built in the 1980's.  However DANCER, built in 2000, represents a rare opportunity to own one of the last Sunward 48s built.   The most famous Sunward 48 was the venerated WYNTJE, owned by Walter Cronkite.

COMMENTARY -- from a web blogger

The Sunward 48 is the ideal voyaging platform. I own hull number 7 and have logged 25,000 miles in her. To quote a professional mariner of 30 years experience, "The Sunward 48 is the ideal cruising boat. In light airs or heavy seas she will do exactly what you want her to. I have skippered and delivered most of the world's high quality boats including Swans, Oysters and Hinckleys and the Sunward 48 was the best of them all." Its nautical architecture numbers are astounding: comfort motion ratio, sail area to displacement, capsize risk, roll acceleration all point to a boat of amazing stability and strength, yet this vessel routinely sails at eight knots in moderate airs.
