This Spencer 53 was custom-built for a Boeing engineer who knew what he wanted in a long range cruiser. She was designed to be operated under power from an inside protected helm station, and to sail well from a traditional center cockpit.
Though built in 1978 she has been continually upgraded in its sails, spars, mechanical and electrical systems as well as new port lights and an Awlgrip paint job of the hull and deck, just to mention the most obvious.
Now currently ready for offshore travel.
