cruiser for sale
Ballast: 2017 lbs. lead
Proven blue water
cruising sail boat
in very good , ready to sail condition. I’ve only owned her for a short time , and my cruising plans have changed.
I bought the boat
from the estate of a gentleman who loved and lavished attention on the boat. She was re-powered with a brand new Beta marine
14 h.p. fresh water
less than 2 years ago. It is practically new. He also installed a brand new Monitor wind vane
. It is literally brand new.
She was kept in fresh water
, so the bottom , zincs , and prop are all in fantastic condition.
I recently did a shakedown cruise
during some very high wind San Francisco
Bay Area days , and she performed like a champ. She is an incredible sailing machine.

Blue Fin is ready to sail today. As all boats , there are a few things that could use a little attention before taking off on a long cruise
There are 2 Telo , self tailing
winches in the cockpit
: one is missing the top nut. It still works as it should , but this should be addressed.
All running lights and electronics
are in fine working order , but there is a short somewhere that is keeping the interior cabin
lights from working. I haven’t traced down the short yet … and temporarily solved
the problem by installing some battery
powered LED lights
in the cabin
Blue Fin is a wonderful , safe , Blue Water cruiser that is perfect for a single
hander or couple to safely (and QUICKLY!) go anywhere their heart desires.
She is located in Alameda , ca. Right across the bay from San Francisco
. Slip fees
are approximately $290. Per month. The slip is transferable.
Feel free to call or write with any questions and to set up a time to come see her.
