This boat is refitted stem to stern with the latest and greatest equipment. She will not need upgrades in 3 to 5 years like many other similar listed boats and she is priced far below them so that you can add the features you want along with having a boat that is ready to go for 10 years. Even the mast was pulled and completely re lighted and rewired. She is ready to go anywhere you want. She is equipped with new North SDI sails. Read up on that to see why they are so good. She also is equipped with a Forespar Whisker Pole for efforless and efficient down wind sailing. The diesel has low hours at appx 1750. This boat has lots of value beyond pretty cushions. The hard and technical work of creating a modern boat has been done. Survey from 2020 is available.
