Due to purchase of another boat, currently offering this distinctive and charming, 1972, Sampson designed lines, full keeled, two masted, junk rigged, privately constructed, ferrous cement (hull and decks), sailboat. This sturdy, capable cruiser also offers each and all of the most desirable traits of a tiny house. Your capable cruiser and comfy, elegant cabin, combined in one package.

Inside the custom crafted, spacious, insulated cabin, you’ll find an abundance of gleaming warm wood finishes, along with classy new upholstery, ingenious layout and thoughtful appointments, such as a gimbaled counter top, a full sized map table, an alcohol cooktop, an Engel refrigerator (12V and 120), a Nature’s Head, composting toilet, foot pumped sink water, and an attractive diesel heater (emits a view of the flickering flames – the ultimate of warm and cozy for shoulder season enjoyment). There is a battery charger, solar panel power augmentation, an inverter, lots of windows bringing in the scenes and the light, and higher than normal headroom.

The hull is in excellent condition. It has been painstakingly refurbished through a process of pin tucking, yielding a smooth, fiberglass-appearing finish. Below waterline it is finished with Coppercoat, an excellent antifouling paint. It is powered by a Perkins diesel, four-cylinder, with 3000 hours showing, in excellent condition. There is ample fuel and fresh water tankage, consistent with design elements for long voyages. Ocean capabilities are proven, having cruised from Lake Pepin, down the Mississippi River, then to Cuba, then a hundred miles offshore of the East Coast, to channels that lead into the Great Lakes. Other than that voyage, this has been a fresh water vessel. The halliards and sheets lead conveniently back to the cockpit. There is a windlass and a powered wash down system. The draw is six feet and displacement 28,000 pounds – very solid and capable in big water.

We have loved, sailed and curated this boat with many recent improvements, and now offer it for sale at a monetary loss, but with much gain of heart. It’s an opportunity for the buyer, as we look toward our next adventure.

The battens require light repairs, and the boat currently has dated navigation electronics requiring some repairs. The price reflects this. She is fully operational and a sharp looking boat.
