I have owned this boat since 2004 and sail it from a mooring at my house in Cushing, Maine for the months of June through September. The other approximate 8 months the boat is in inside (steel building) storage at Journey's End Marine in Rockland. All service records available. Except for the radar all systems are working. Since 2004 this boat has had an easy life being daysailed and cruised on the Maine coast. It has never been raced. It was in good shape when I acquired it in 2004 having been kept and used most of it's years on Chesapeake Bay.
My present age suggests I find a smaller sailboat and a larger motorboat. As they say, it is often better to leave the party ten minutes too soon than five minutes too late.
Price (based on survey) $62,000.
