It’s impossible to describe, give a call to discuss and plan to visit her!

  • Stunning boat that works exceptionally well and goes quick!
  • Willing to consider reasonable offers.  Also willing to consider crewing at regatta(s) as part of negotiation.  It’s a special boat, both the boat and Class deserve for the boat to be used more than we can make happen over the next few years.
  • We want to see the boat be used and cared for, rather than warehoused.  Just reduced the listing price and will consider further discount if the boat will be actively sailed in one of the ECFS fleets this Summer
