The current owner (just the second) is a naval architect. He has kept her in pristine condition since 1992. All systems are updated. 2 mains/2 genoas/3 spinnakers are all in good/excellent condition  and just 4/5 years old. The cockpit is spacious. The interior is bright. The teak and holly cabin sole shines and the red cushions are in excellent condition. In just the last 4 years, the entire topside was repainted with awlgrip, engine mounts changed, rudder bearing renewed and the teak and holly sole was redone. The list continues...Here is an opportunity to own a performance cruiser at a very reasonable price. A complete list of options/upgrades/instruments/sails is available to serious buyers.
