The most Ambitious Seawind II ever

Author John Vigor describes the Allied Seawind 2 affectionately in his book “Twenty small boats you can sail anywhere” We have had a lovely time with Ambitious, sailing all over the Gulf, Keys and Cuba. With an air draft of only 45’ and draft of 4.5’ she can gunk hole, duck into waterways with tiny bridges or cross any ocean you want. One of only 11 Cutter rigged Allied Seawind 2 built,, she has a great sailplan for us. Continuously updated-NO, restored, she has amenities and features missing from most larger boats. 2019 “Bristol” survey available with recent additions BEYOND that including: New refrigerator with smart controller with passive water cooled condenser, new MAX-PROP EZ, ablative bottom paint, new cabin sole flooring and refinished cockpit table and cockpit sole grate. Yup, that’s all just in the last 12 months. $52000usd laying Fairhope, AL. Please PM for complete photos and text.
