Boat is located in Brunswick, Maine.

Wise Child is a classic example of the compact ocean racers built for the SORC in the late 1970s.

Designed by Craig Walters, a veteran Sparkman and Stephens architect, Wise Child placed in the 1983 Sydney-Hobart race.

Subsequently rigged for solo offshore cruising, shes a head-turning, quick and comfortable ride to wherever you want to go.

Trusty, recently overhauled Yanmar 3GM30.

Running rigging, electronics, plumbing are new, between 2016-2020.

Raymarine instruments -- under deck autopilot, course computer, Axiom MFD, Vesper 8000 AIS, ICom VHF, Fusion stereo, etc.

Seafrost fridge, Force 10 stove/oven.

Shower/pressure water in head.

This is one versatile boat.

Lighten the load down below and youll be faster than most around the buoys; add a few creature comforts, and shes a great coastal cruiser for 2-4.

Excellent structural condition, and fastidiously maintained.

Solid glass hull with three solid stringers on each side for stiffness.

A wonderful find.

Comes with original architect design drawings courtesy of Mystic Seaport Archive.
