Re: President sailboat

I don't agree with that assessment of the poor build quality of the Nassau 34. I've had my boat for two years now and have done lots of work on her. I continue to be impressed with the materials and construction of the vessel. Very well laid fibreglass throughout, and the teak joinery and finish is right up there with the best of them, above and below deck. This particular cored deck is probably one of the most solid decks out there much better than many boats with a higher pedigree. Sound and flex even after 30 years is non-existent. A very sea-kindly and pleasant boat to sail aided by its canoe stern. While its no speed demon it can reach respectable speeds in a good blow and points very well, almost making hull speed (7.1) with a cutter rig. Fittings on board are all stainless with the exception of some bronze furnishings such as portholes and parts of the steering column, this lends its self to its classic lines while still retaining the functionality of the stainless. While a little light on tankage for extended offshore sailing this boat has lots of easily accessible storage inside, that can be used or repurposed if desired. Overall, if well fitted out with a new rig this boat could take you anywhere in the world without breaking the 100K mark and is small enough to single-hand with ease. I feel very lucky to have found my boat and get many people knocking on my hatch to ask what it is and compliment her lines and finish. If you want to know more about this boat just send me a line, I would be happy to enlighten anyone interested.

Re: President sailboat

A nice response, Will, but the post you were replying to was from 13 years ago. The OP has likely moved on.

Meanwhile, welcome to CF. I expect there are others who would be interested in your unusual boat.
