    Designed, constructed and equipped for long range cruising and/or comfortable live aboard, this rare, Ron Amy designed double-ended cutter carries 300 gallons of diesel and 270 gallons of water for true, passage making potential and has new mast and standing rigging, fresh bottom paint, and a very extensive equipment list.

    Interior layout includes a separate navigation station, maintenance area with workbench, comfortable aft stateroom, spacious main salon, wet locker, guest stateroom forward, L-shaped galley, abundant storage, refrigerator and freezer, two heads with both fresh and sea water shower systems, excellent access to engine, generator, air-conditioning unit and other machinery, and beautiful teak joinery and secure handholds throughout.

    On deck, the center cockpit, double stainless steel railing, raised toe rails, boom gallows and teak decks, contribute to a safety offshore, and numerous lockers provide exceptional storage.

    This boat is exceptionally clean and has been maintained and equipped with the expectation of long-term cruising after retirement. Recent events, however, have forced the abandonment of cruising plans, and the boat is offered for sale in excellent condition and with all equipment and spares which have been acquired in anticipation of extended cruising.
