The owner bought this boat in 2009

General condition and any additional information

This 2-owner boat with tons of upgrades is the ideal balance of low maintenance and modern economical cruising with few sacrifices on comfort. The very easy to maintain and operate electric start 2 stroke 9.8hp Tohatsu outboard engine with in-cockpit shift and throttle controls, and a high thrust 4 blade symmetrical propeller make this boat simple and easy to handle with nearly none of the usual downfalls of an outboard engine. Custom RDS built USCG certified aluminum 9 gallon fuel tank gives an engine runtime of roughly 12+ hours motoring at 5-6kts (conditions depending), of course thats when you are not sailing!

Great light air performance is ideal for long island sound summers, and a complete sail inventory including symetrical spinnaker setup allows for quick efficient sailing on all points of sail. Current owner has taken boat to countless harbors from Block Island to New York Harbor since purchasing in 2009.

Convertible open v-berth and 6’2” of headroom, she comfortably sleeps 2-4 adults, and a well-insulated ice chest and 2 burner stove ensures hot coffee and scrambled egg breakfasts, are easy while relaxing at anchor.
