Port hull has single cabin in front, followed by galley, and another single in the rear.  Starboard has a large double forward, navigation station and bunk under behind, and head in the rear.  Between these two hulls is a central seating area with sitting headroom for 6 adults.  The headliner has been fixed back up into position by using mahogany battens, and the central cabin now looks and feels very warm and interesting with all of this new woodwork.  Also, all the cushions in the boat have been replaced with very high-quality new work, from the same people who build cushions for Sabre Yachts.  New fluorescent light over center table.  Two tables (small cocktail table and a larger dinner table that slides over it) can be taken out to cockpit and used. New carpeting in both hulls and central cabin. New curtains.

New navigation lights and wiring, new Furuno 1622 radar, new Furuno GPS, VHF radio with new wiring and antenna, depth sounder/fish finder, original compass in good working order, Autohelm 3000 in good working order.  New anchor light on masthead.

1999 Yamaha 9.9 4-stroke engine with less than 50 hours, runs perfect.  Two new 6-volt deep cycle batteries, new cables, switches, all new wiring in boat except where wires run inside wall cavities (approx. 85% new), new Blue Seas Systems breaker panel with 8 switches/breakers.  New LectraSan head treatment system, new bilge pumps, hoses, plumbing, new pressure water pump and two new faucets, new head.  Steering system completely gutted out and rebuilt with quality components and careful work, from the steering wheel to the kick up rudder and everything in-between. (Boat steers very nicely.)  New 3-way (propane, 12vdc, 120vac) refrigerator works excellent.  Two gallons aluminum propane tank in back locker, all new propane fittings, hoses, etc.  New S-2 propane sniffer in main cabin.

Very good condition deck and hulls.  Bottom has been stripped and re-epoxied. There were no blisters on the original gelcoat, but a new epoxy layer was added as a precautionary measure. Hulls above waterline are also excellent, could use a polish, but there are no signs of problems and all the gelcoat (although old) is in consistent color and quality.  Deck is also in very good condition.  Several nicks and scratches from being almost 25 years old, but there is no sign of stress fracturing, delamination, or water intrusion into the substrate.  Deck is solid to walk and work on, and non-skid is still defined well.  Almost all deck fittings, including stanchions, were removed, cleaned and reapplied with 5200, boat is very dry under with no signs of water intrusion.  Two new 24-hour solar-powered fans in head and rear stateroom provide good ventilation.  All new high-quality thru-deck fittings, both below the waterline and near mast.  New sea-cocks, hoses, and clamps.  New woodwork (rails) in back cockpit, with lots of varnish.  All hatches and hinges are there and work fine, windows are tight, come with bug screens for comfort.  New helm seat and footrest, newer (in excellent condition) full cockpit enclosure, made of Sunbrella,  with bug screens and removable privacy curtains.  New lifelines. Tophouse has been repainted and all new plexiglass has been installed.

Main and 5 headsails.  Main is in decent shape, having been converted from standard battens to full battens.  I think this is a newer main, not the original.  3 jibs  of varying quality, one is almost new and the others are decent.  Spinnaker is decent, and a large genny (22' foot) is in poor shape, with patches, but still works. (New owner may want to convert boat to roller-furling, so not much effort was spent in upgrading sails.)  Mast was taken down last year and reworked, new sheaves on head, new bottom shoe, several new upgraded turnbuckles, all new wiring, all pins either checked or replaced.  Mast partner also taken off and repainted, newly caulked to deck, very solid.  A total of 9 stays (two forestays, twin backstays, four shrouds and a baby stay) makes this mast overbuilt to say the least.  Boom is in good condition, a little faded at the back but structurally fine.  New boom vang and all new traveler system and lines.  Winches upgraded to newer two-speed cans, rebuilt, in good working condition.  New Schaffer stand-up blocks for jib control.  New floating winch handle.

Has updated safety equipment, two anchors (Bruce and Danforth, each with own rode).  New propane Bar-b-que with cover.  Boat is fully beachable and the shallow draft has taken us into calm waters on many occasions. We have never had to fight for a anchoring spot or worry about swinging into anything. Boat is Coast Guard documented. Boat does not include dinghy or davits.

This is a classic cat that has been lovingly restored.  The entire boat was gone over, with many systems taken apart and rebuilt.  All system were checked and updated with quality materials, and the boat is ready to sail with no work needed.  It has enjoyed a very good season on the Casco Bay waters and is looking for a new owner.

Yacht is currently on the hard in South Portland, ME. I will be happy to show it to any interested parties. Come sail Maine!!!
