Additional Information


Present owner is the second owner.  It was purchased 1984 from Hellier Yacht Sales and has sailed each season on Long Island Sound since then.  Boat has done some cruises from Mamaroneck to Block Is. and primarily sailed on weekend cruises from Mamaroneck to Oyster Bay.  Reluctantly selling because of move of residence out of the region.

Sails and Rig

Two main sails, one fully battened and just serviced.  One 110% "lapper".  One spinnaker (rarely used).  This is a fractional rig and the boat sails and tacks well with the large main alone making it easy to sail single handed. The rig is original and the backstay was replaced in 2020.


Meticulously maintained, well-running, very reliable, original Universal 24HP (Kubota tractor) engine.  No hour meter.  Transmission was replaced with a new one in 2019.


Original instruments will need updating by new owner.  Boat is used with portable Garmin GPS (not included) and Windex as the only instruments.


This is a classic lively-sailing Sparkman Stephens design quality built by Tartan, one of the high-end sailing brands.  The gel coat has been well maintained and still shines with no signs of chalking.  It is a boat you can rely upon for fun and safe sailing and cruising.  It is affordably priced for a complete package including hot and cold pressure water with cockpit shower, stove and oven, classic oil lamps, dinghy, engine and Edson rail mount, Magma propane grill, Edson teak cockpit table and full cockpit cover for sun and rain protection.  The interior cushions were redone in 2019 and are in excellent condition. New cockpit cushions were also added in 2019.  A new owner can safely use the boat as-is for the 2021 season.


As a 1981 the boat it is not new and shows natural signs of its age. The cabin sole can use attention and the lifelines will need to be replaced; the backstay adjuster needs new plastic bearings.  A new owner may wish to update instruments and do normal upgrades for a boat of this age.
