There are many attractive features to this boat. Most amazing is that it is 62 years old and still providing cruising activity and enjoyment equal to when it was new. This is a testimony to the original builders, the quality of the materials, the design, and the proper care that it has received from the succession of caring owners. Always kept in covered moorage, re-powered in 2000, recently refastened below the waterline by Jensen Marine in Seattle, totally re-wired with new service panel. Now she is ready for the show circuit or for extended travel. This is a "turn key' classic.
You will find this vessel beautiful, fast and fun. She can be run hard, played hard and still be a regal queen of the fleet!
