A Classic Beauty – Although she’s a modern day yacht, she’s built along traditional lines with a bowsprit, clipper bow, teak brightwork and brass and bronze fittings.

Great blue water sailing yacht – Built like a tank.  Always gets you to the other side. Full keel with cutaway forefoot and 11,000 pounds ballast – stiff and stable.  Ketch sail plan – reduces sails to sizes manageable in heavy weather.  Staysail – indispensable storm sail.  Main Stackpak with track – safe handling of main at sea.  Galerider included.  Yankee genoa and staysail both roller furled.  Bow pulpit, stern pulpit, double lifelines and 8 inch plus bulwarks – keep people and equipment on board. Center cockpit – drier sailing.  Cockpit enclosure – even drier sailing.

One of the best liveaboard sailing yachts – Three sleeping cabins, two heads with showers.  Large salon windows and raised coach roof – why live in a hole?  Naugahyde liner throughout – no rain forest during northern winters.  Burmese teak bulkheads, lockers, etc. – avoids the plastic look. 6.5 – 7 feet headroom below.  Teak and holly salon sole.  Comfortable winter living –   extensive Reflectix insulation, Lexan and shrink film storm windows. Cockpit enclosure.

Terrific charter yacht – Current owners have chartered Prelude for a living in NYC and the Caribbean for over 34 years.
