FULL DESCRIPTION

S/V Pacific Spirit is a gorgeous boat. Built to a high standard, with the classic lines and sensible layout of a Carl Alberg design. The full keel and encapsulated lead ballast will keep you safe in heavy weather. Cape Dory hulls were built in one piece, by hand–as strong as it gets for a fiberglass boat. She’s equipped for coastal cruising, but could be made into a blue-water pocket cruiser with some additional investment. No leaks below the waterline (dry bilge), and the bottom paint is in fair-to-good condition according to the diver who cleans it. Jib is on a furler, and both sails are 6/10. Shrouds are tight, and running rigging is in fair- to good condition (the traveler line’s a bit picked). Anchor is on a roller, with chain and rode in good condition. Electrical system is in good shape–all lights work–and powered by two brand-new AGM batteries fed by a newly installed solar charging system equipped with two flexible panels. The non-skid is crazed around the cockpit, and there’s a poorly-executed repair to some minor damage on the port side toerail (entirely aesthetic). Inside, there’s an Origo alcohol stove, berths for four, a fold-down table, ice chest, hand-pumped sink with 24 gallon water tank, and a conventional head. I just had two floatless electric bilge pumps installed, with switches accessible from the companionway; the manual pump remains as a backup. Auxiliary power comes from a Yanmar YSM8: a simple, raw water-cooled mini-diesel that’s known to run for decades. The motor received a new water pump in 2021, along with a new belt, impeller, fuel filters and oil change.

**UPDATE: I STARTED HAVING ENGINE ISSUES A COUPLE MONTHS AGO, AND JUST LEARNED THAT THE COMPRESSION IS LOW (290 PSI), MEANING IT NEEDS TO BE REBUILT. THIS WILL COST , AND CAN BE DONE IN THE SLIP. I HAVE LOWERED MY BY TO REFLECT THIS SITUATION.**

These boats are very rare on the west coast, and I’m loth to let her go. I live and work on Catalina, and was planning to fit her out as a liveaboard. Getting the work done from a distance has proved difficult, though, and there are still a few projects pending (cockpit drain through-hulls are frozen; head needs re-plumbing…and now the engine). I’m not desperate to sell, but am open to offers.
