First Impressions

As the pictures depict the boat runs a Gaff Rig for simplicity and we love the folding mast that allows one capable person to stand the mast and set up for the days adventure. When not in use and folded the boom/mast can lay atop of the stern mounted cradle above the bimini top.

On the Water

The cockpit has enough room for 4 people and has a self-draining floor and two large storage holds port and starboard with another 3rd smaller storage hold in the transom. The bimini is easily stood and offers some shade from the midday sun and can be lowered and stored in the supplied storage sock. Top decks are easy to traverse as they have a textured nonskid finish making passage to the bow an easy affair with added timber hold rails.

The original 2 stroke outboard was replaced in 2016 with this four stroke MF5S Tohatsu 5Hp with a high thrust propeller allowing the owner to enjoy ample power and sailing on the inland freshwater lakes. The motor has been mechanically inspected and is all within manufacturers tolerances and an engine service was completed in March 2019 for your further reassurance. The motor is a long shaft and mounts on the transom outboard bracket and comes with books and manuals and a 12l aux fuel tank.

Isn't the cabin quaint, clean, light and airy!

With upholstered bunk cushions allowing 2 to sleep, opening port and starboard cabin windows for ventilation and light and the companion way is easy to walk through with removable storm boards and a sliding hatch.  We have tried to capture this space highlighting the clever design and that everything has a home for the stove, chemical toilet, battery hold etc. Even a small solar panel keeps the battery topped up and a battery management system is installed.

The owner has loved this sailboat and it's easy to see why as for a late model 17 footer to take the grandchildren or children out for a sail is both comfortable and easy to do.
