Broker's Comments


This old girl has plenty of history. She was originally built in Toronto Canada and used to race from Nova Scotia to Bermuda. She was crowned a winner once and I am sure she will have many more proud days ahead of her if someone is willing to help her out. She is in very rough shape due to her sitting in a boat yard for one year without being cared for. With a detached rudder, a malfunctioning starter, leaky windows and a many more issue to tend to she can be a great boat again.

Take a look at her pictures from 2007 to see how beautiful she was and can be.

She is a PROJECT BOAT, a true DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, make us an OFFER. With the right owner and some good nautical know how the many good parts she does have will shine again. Give me a call to discuss what it will take to bring her back.
