1975 35 ft. Bristol with tens of thousands of dollars in upgrades. I purchased this boat in June and have sailed all summer but my plans have changed and I need to move back west for next couple of years. I was going to sail to Nova Scotia next season. I have considered keeping in dry storage but I would prefer to sell. I am currently sailing in Mt Desert Island and on my way back to Rockland. Boat is available now and can be delivered for a reasonable fee.

There is over in new touch screen electronics (2 touch screen GPS, 1 smaller GPS Multi-Function and 1 multi-function unit (wind, depth, etc..). Standard Horizon VHF with AIS and remote MIC at helm. Auto pilot control head at Helm. The install is impeccable.

The previous owner had very little experience with boat. I can now answer most of your questions about how she handles, sails and cruises.

As I have said, I purchased just over 2 months ago. Prior to my 2 months in 2022 sailing all over mid-coast to Down East Maine, the boat had not been sailed much in last 3 years. The owners I purchased from only sailed 2 weeks in 2021 and than stored in side. The next previous owner lived in Stockton Springs and occasionally cruised, mostly a day/weekend sailor. since purchase, I have.
1. installed new start battery
2. installed a 600watt max solar MMP controller (prior system was not wired correctly)
3. Professional fuel polish and power wash of the diesel tank. Boat was not used in last 3 years which caused fuel to go bad.
4. New 6 to 1 Main sheet.

I have a 2021 Survey for prior to my recent upgrades.
