FOR SALE – Turn-Key Cruiser Sailboat

Come enjoy this turn key cruiser sailboat that sleeps four comfortably. Perfect for beginner sailors; couples or small families alike. It boasts 6′ of headroom and ample storage for a boat this size.

I am selling the boat because I am not able to use it this year due to work and social obligations.

I am also throwing in for free, the rest of the summers mooring at the beautiful Toronto Island Marina, located on Centre Island.

Included with boat –

  • Recently tuned 15 hp outboard Evinrude   engine. Electric and pull start. Starts and runs great
  • Brand new auto helm included, but not installed.
  • 5 Sails all in good condition – genoa, regular jib, storm jib. Main sail. Spinnaker.
  • Redid the gelcoat and entire upper deck paint 3 years ago. Smooth and textured paint.
  • Brand new battery and trickle charger
  • Functioning head with holding tank
  • Anchor with Rhode and line
  • Safety equipment (flares, fire extinguisher, life jackets)
  • Single burner butane cooktop
  • Dishes and cooking equipment also included

The boat is in perfectly functional form, any small issues are cosmetic ; small amounts of brightwork need refinishing and the cushion covers are quite dated ( I enjoy the look, you may not). Also all cushions on the boat are only a year old. One plexiglass window is cracked, does not leak but put a piece of tape on it anyways. I have the extra glazing. There are a few small maintenance issues (cleaning etc), that I have not been able to tend to due to the reason I am selling it.

This boat is a must see!
