The versatile rig with wishbone booms requires no stays, shrouds, vangs, or winches. Down below features 6’2” headroom with 8 large ports, abundant wood, and a  spacious galley, salon, head and v berth. Galley has hot water and refrigeration.

Clean bottom with a transom mounted rudder. Newly painted bottom and zink. Good running NANNI DIESEL. Lifesling, life jackets, windscoop, and bimini.
