Classic lines on this rare freshwater Sparkman and Stephens designed yacht hearken back to a bygone era when sailing ships were designed and built with sea kindly motion and graceful passage making in mind. She won’t sleep twelve in eight private cabins, but she will take you and a few guests anywhere you want to go, in almost any weather you want to go in. She has been constantly upgraded by her current owner (who also happens to be a member of the Order of Canada) including all new sails (Main, Furling Genoa, Spare 150% Genoa, Mizzen, Gale), new 55hp Volvo diesel and systems (transmission, prop shaft, exhaust, etc.), new upholstery, new wiring and more. She has plenty of cruising gear including 300′ of chain hooked to a 50lb plough anchor and retrieved by an electric windlass, with a stainless CQR as a spare. She has a unique factory built hard dodger and bimini with Isinglass panels that can enclose the dodger when it's raining or storming. Walker Bay 10' hard dinghy & outboard.


- Will sleep a total of eight in private forward and aft staterooms, each with their own head, two single salon berths, and a mid cabin single. All berths have been reupholstered 2010.
