Broker's Comments

This Colvin-designed Pinky Schooner has been beautifully and lovingly built over a 15 year period. Completed in 2008, she features steel construction by a well-regarded east coast yard, and professional rigging, engine installation, and wiring. The subsequent completion of the boat by the seller has been done in an extraordinary fashion -- with top materials, careful craftsmanship, and beautiful finishing.

The classic gaff-rigged sail plan, the raked masts, and the low double-ended hull with the sweeping sheer is absolutely beautiful -- an eye-catcher in any port or at sea.

Well-equipped with an engine built for commercial lifeboats, a watermaker, a full complement of navigational electronics and many other premium pieces of equipment, this schooner is ready to go places in style.
