"Current Address" is an ideal cruiser for extended sailing coastal cruising.   Small enough to be easily managed by a shorthanded crew and big enough to be comfortable in open water. 

This boat has new electronics and boat wiring as of 2014 resulting from a lightning strike.   Also, there is a new mast, standing and running rigging, and mast wiring in 2015 due to a boat yard handling mishap.  The boat is well equipped with these updated electronics including two Raymarine hybrid Touch Multifunction displays color chart plotters, radar, wind, speed, depth, autopilot, VHF radio, and stereo all new in 2014. The interior is clean with no odors and includes a refrigerator, freezer, propane stove, single head with shower, high headroom and two big double berth staterooms.  

LOW ENGINE HOURS, NEW EPRIB, NEW Propane cabin heater.
