New London, CT US

This classic sailing vessel was designed by Olle Enderlein, a renowned Swedish yacht designer, with safety and comfort in mind. As you step aboard she gives you a feeling of steadiness with the ability to easily handle all the various conditions the sea may offer up. Her name is T.A.R.D.I.S., a tip of the hat to Dr. Who.

She is powered by a D2-55 diesel engine installed in 2008 with injectors rebuilt in 2020. The previous owner had her outfitted with a stern thruster for ease of maneuvering. All her electronics have been updated. The bow pulpit is custom made with a heavy duty stainless steel windlass. For added safety and suprior grip, Marine Deck 2000 cork composite has been applied to the deck surfaces. The cockpit has a fixed windscreen with a folding dodger and for further protection, a two piece bimini. A 2018 Zodiac Cadet 10' inflatable with a 2 stroke outboard motor are included.

The entrance to the aft cabin is behind the helm. There you find plenty of privacy with twin berths that convert to a queen with a storage locker. Shelves on either side keep books and nic-nacks within easy reach.

Stepping down into the main salon you are surrouded by beautifully varnished wood adding to the welcoming feeling. Starboard, along with an organized navigation station she features a well equipped galley with stove/oven, sink and ice box. Portside is a custom, folding table with a single berth and plenty of shelves. 

Moving towards the bow, portside is the head with sink and hand held hot/cold shower. Starboard is a large, double hanging locker. The V-berth has 3 ports with a large hatch for plenty of light and ventilation. There are shelves on both sides to keep miscellaneous items.

All in all, T.A.R.D.I.S. is a sailing vessel that will take you as far as you like for as long as you like, in fine style. Please give me a call, text or email me, Sue, if you would like to step aboard this fine lady and see for yourself how grand she is.
