This extremely rare English-built bilge-keeled boat is tough, rugged, and has been lovingly restored by her current owners. They have had a great time aboard her cruising as a family, but due to the owner and daughter's health issues they are forced to sell. She would make a lovely cruising boat for a small family!
Her rig is currently off and stored in a reliable and boat yard in St. Augustine, FL, where all of the work has been completed. Owners are replacing headliner, and she has MANY new electronics and upgrades!

Her deep vee bows and broad shoulders part the waves silently, with no slamming evident, but when pushed hard she can dump a little spray on board.
Tacking is a fairly slow affair, but at
