Brokers Comment
"Eyerly" has been a fixture here at Erie yacht Club. She was a factory Demo and made her way on her own bottom across the Atlantic to the Southern US where her current and only owner purchased her and had it shipped to Erie. As a Factory Demo she is loaded with racing gear and upgrades. Her owner has also made many upgrades including repowering her. "Eyerly" has an enviable racing record. Her Lake Erie PHRF is 78, no slouch even compared to more recent models. Reluctantly, health and her owners age force her sale.
