The interior is quite spacious with private forward and aft cabins, two heads, large salon and galley with plenty of counter space.  She is an excellent balanced cruiser, safe and comfortable.  She has a large cockpit, wheel steering, catbird seats and an open transom for easy water or dinghy access.

Her cabin is light and airy with 7 opening ports and 8 deck hatches for great cross ventilation.

Lightly used for daysailing and in excellent condition. A must see if you are in the market for a contemporary styled sailboat with outstanding amenities.

Dave Regnet learned to sail when he was 8 at summer camp on Lake Chautaugua. He returned 7 more summers because sailing (and teaching others to sail) became his passion. Dave grew up in Buffalo where he has been active in the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club since the early 1980s. In 2007, Dave moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and became active in the Lake Grapevine Sailing Club. Returning north in 2010, Dave and his wife, Rebecca, joined the St. Marys Boat Club located on Grand Lake St. Marys. He was club champion in 2017. Dave’s retirement from over 30 years in manufacturing, sales management, and plant operations allows him to pursue his passion for boating by adding value to buyers and sailors alike in the Sandusky area of Lake Erie.
