Classic lines on this rare freshwater Sparkman and Stephens designed yacht hearken back to a bygone era when sailing ships were designed and built with sea kindly motion and graceful passage making in mind. She won’t sleep twelve in eight private cabins, but she will take you and a few guests anywhere you want to go, in almost any weather you want to go in. She has been constantly upgraded by her current owner (who also happens to be a member of the  Order of Canada) including all new sails (Main, Furling Genoa, Spare 150% Genoa, Mizzen), new 55hp Volvo diesel and systems (transmission, prop shaft, exhaust, etc.), new upholstery, new wiring and more. She has plenty of cruising gear including 300′ of chain hooked to a 50lb plough anchor and retrieved by an electric windlass, with a stainless CQR as a spare. She has a unique factory built hard dodger and bimini with Eizenglass panels that snap on to make a full enclosure. Also includes 8′ inflatable dinghy with 5hp outboard.
