Beautiful, well-maintained, and enhanced wherever possible, this Large Tri-cabin layout, Tall rig 2’ to regular mast height, Allmand sloop, that can be rigged as a cutter, is a steal.

Originally Tim Allmand’s personal boat, it is particularly well-apportioned and has aesthetic touches not seen in any but the most expensive yachts.

The interior has the roominess of a 40’ yacht.

It is virtually all solid teak, including 3 6-panel doors, beautiful solid teak parquet floor throughout, teak side paneling, shelves, bulkheads and cabinets see pictures.

Throughout the boat there are 7 opening screened ports, and on each side a large Plexiglas window.

The very roomy main cabin has a large U-shaped dining area that, with the settee, can seat up to 8 and sleeps 3.

The kitchenette has a four burner stove, oven, working refrigerator which can make ice, and loads of space for storing and preparing food.

The roomy quarter-berth and V-berths, both with 6” thick memory foam double beds, afford total privacy from the large main cabin.

Each sleeping area has a screened hatch, at least one opening screened port and 1 hanging locker.

The very roomy cockpit has a dodger and attachable Bimini, usable under sail, and heavy vinyl and mosquito netting side curtains that totally enclose the cockpit, making it a separate living space while at anchor.

The exterior has been maintained with yearly waxing, shrink-wrapped winter storage, all woodwork varnished, bottom painting, and non-skid repainted.

Sail with your choice of 2 main sails, 2 jibs 150 and 120 and a full spinnaker, and handle your sails with 2 self-tailing Barlow 25 winches, 4 Barlow 16 winches, 1 Barlow 16 on the mast for the main halyard, Harken Mark III roller furling Genoa, and a Harken self-tending mainsheet traveler.

Cockpit instruments include depth sounder, knot meterlog, Autohelm 3000, new VHF radio and new GPS.

We bought this boat in 1991, after our third child was born, because its spaciousness, comfort and safeness accommodated self-sufficient sailing, cruising, and often anchoring in the open waters of Lake Erie.

It was raced in the BHSC.

In addition to all of the provisions and variety of items required to keep a family of five content, we carried three inflatable kayaks with paddles and folding bicycles for when docked.

We have safely albeit unintentionally sailed in heavy weather with up to 50 kt. gusts.

It is an extremely comfortable, dry, seaworthy craft that sails well because of the tall mast 2’ and rigging.
