The Good Schooner Drummer is for sale! And the Price Has Been Reduced!!!!! Now Only Asking USD!!!!

After 15 years as my home and the platform for our wildest adventures I must now sell my boat Drummer in order to move forward with our next big adventure, the new schooner Skua.

Drummer is 1973 Colvin Doxy 38’ steel junk-rigged-schooner. Drummer for sale in Luperon, Dominican republic. Frequently compared to the Colvin Gazelle, the Doxy is a slightly shorter, heavier displacement, more spacious and stable version of Tom Colvin’s most famous design The Colvin Gazelle 42’. Drummer’s hull was professionally crafted at T.D. Vinette shipyard in Escanaba Michigan at a time when american steel alloys were the best quality the world ever saw. Drummer is an amazing vessel and has taken very good care of me. She is a heavy displacement 38′, 15 ton steel hull in good condition, with spares, storage, and all systems “keep-it-simple” cruising ready, and with option for delivery worldwide! Check out the linked website for more photos and information about the equipment onboard. After checking out the website and photos please feel free to message me with specific questions! thanks!
