Steel exterior construction gives way to warm woods below. Both port and starboard sides have large single berths curtained for privacy. Most of the nav electronics are at the starboard side nav station and desk at the aft of the salon cabin with a full galley to port. Settees on both sides and a good size mahogany table make for comfortable seating and eating. A Dickenson Diesel heater is to Port next to the access forward to the main cabin. Head is to starboard with hanging locker to port. A large forward "V"Berth style cabin has lots of storage and window light from forward looking windows and a large Lewmar hatch that looks up at the mast.

The wood interior appears somewhat rough-hewn by modern standards but it's nicely done, fits well and is smooth. It has a very "homey" feel. The upholstery could stand to be upgraded as could the foam cushions but generally it has a very nice comfortable interior. No signs of window or hatch leaks. This could be a very sound and comfortable long range bluewater cruiser.

Broker's Comments

Just reduced another $6000! This steel Ted Brewer designed cutter could easily be considered an expedition-style vessel. Many steel hulled boats have a wooden house or decks. This one is all metal and built with workboat stylings. From the solid steel bow sprit to the huge hydraulic windlass and the cabin trunk overhangs she looks like she could endure rugged conditions. Yet down below she is warm, pretty and comfortable. She was heavily upgraded in 2002 for a South Sea adventure and with modest upgrades she looks to be ready to go again. If you are looking for offshore adventure and you're on a budget this boat would be a good choice.
