Good sails and engine probably means it is functional for a few years.

Caution steel hulls: We once bought a cheaper older steel boat and the owner had told the boat yard to clean up the hull before we viewed it.

We went to the boatyard the previous day to look at her, and yes, it had a few hundred barnacles but wth. The bottom was OK.

Next day, for official viewing, there was a nice fresh coat of bottom paint!

We were running down the scratches in the bottom epoxy caused by some dolt using a powered wire brush on this barnacles for literally years. Thousands of little batteries.

Getting some random dude in a boatyard to "clean" a hull on a steel boat is not a good idea.

Pass. A small boat in this poor condition might be worth it.
All the upholstery is either missing or dead.
Interior is in very poor shape.
That solar panel isn't safe for a storm, imo.
In mast furling is not my choice for an old boat. Was the mast replaced?

There are better examples of this exact boat, for not much more money.

I am a Canadian living in the U.S. and hadn't heard the word "dolt" in years. I use it once in awhile and people down here look at me oddly when I do...

lol...that's the benefit of understanding their language better than they understand yours. I have friends in Ontario from Newfoundland and they find the same thing! (They also wonder why we're so slow...!)

That was mine. It was sold. Though well built and thought out I would not call that a Blue Water boat really. Sluggish too.

The contest gets a mention in Hal Roths book ,it was credited with saving it's crew after being battered on a reef ,the Dutch really do rate them

I wonder what the story is.
It's not a fashionable boat for that region. Take it north!

Don't know, a previous listing says its in a transferable Clearwater Beach liveaboard marina. Draft is 6.23 ft, which is a lot for around here. You would be careful to stay in the channel until offshore. Would be a comfortable ride
