Columbia 8.3 Meter (27.3') Masthead Sloop

This was our starter boat and the family is now ready to move up to something larger.

This pocket yacht is in exceptional condition.
Well documented history and current with maintenance.. All the teak and bright work has been redone.

For sale at $20,500 or we would consider using it as partial trade to a larger boat (38' to 50' range) for someone considering downsizing.

Extremely well maintained. Brand new teak and holly cabin sole, fresh bottom, new bimini, new cabin upholstery and cockpit cushions, new lazy jacks, new Mack-pack, new lifelines, as many other upgraded items.

Boat is neat, clean, in the water and in sail away condition.

Recent survey and spec sheet available.

Call Jeff at (561) 301-7458

Boat is located on the water in the Palm Beaches.
