Up for sale our Reliance 44 Ketch, bluewater cruiser built in the late 1977 or 78 in Ontario, Canada, sturdy deep full keel, she’s been around the world once and in good shape for more. We love our boat but looking for something smaller. Attractive all wood cabin and big table for meals comfortably can sit 8. V berth, two side berths on settees, two captain’s berths aft. 1 in balsa core in many places and 9 tonne full keel, this is a sturdy lady. She won’t win at the weekly regattas, but she can take the sturdier conditions.
