People who long to sail away to the South Seas often choose the least expensive ocean cruising boat in hopes of affording the dream. Then they find the hull needs work, the sails replaced, and the rigging gone over. There are electronic system upgrades, a watermaker, wind steering vane, and, of course, safety equipment before the old boat is ready to go. By the time everything is ready, years have passed and many thousands of dollars have been spent making the boat’s original price a small percentage.
Due to an unforeseen change in plans, Millie J is for sale. Made ready for a Pacific Ocean crossing in the fall of 2009, she located in Washington State and is available at a very fair price. She is designed, built, and equipped for two people to safely and comfortably make transoceanic passages and she is ready to go now. She is a no-nonsense cruiser, who will turn your head as she does most dock walkers. Contact the seller for a complete equipment list or for more information.
