1985 ABBOTT 33 PURCHASED NEW AT THE 1986 BOAT SHOW IN TORONTO. THIS BOAT HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY CARED FOR AND UPGRADED ON A REGULAR BASIS BY MYSELF SINCE NEW. IT COMES WITH REFERENCES FROM ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME AND THE BOAT. IT REQUIRES NOTHING AND IS READY TO SAIL. FROM THE ABBOTT FACTORY(www.abbottboats.com) IT WAS EQUIPED AT EXTRA COST WITH THE FOLLOWING NUMEROUS ITEMS.MARINER DIGITAL DEPTH AND AND KNOT METERS, 2 PLASTIMO COMPASSES. HARKEN MAINSHEET BLOCKS. HARKEN ROLLER FURLING. VHF RADIO W/MAST HEAD ANTANNAE.UPGRADED CLOTH INTERIOR. WINDEX. TRILIGHT.
"EXTRA" GENOA AND SPINNAKER HALYARDS. GORI PROPELLER.GIMBALED ALCOHOL STOVE. DROP LEAF TABLE. SELF TACKER. STEAMING LIGHT.I IN TURN" ADDED ",

COCKPIT LIGHTING, 2 FIRE EXTINGUISHERS, DOCK HOOK, TILLER EXTENSION, A 3rd WINCH HANDLE, UTILITY HANGERS IN ALL THE LOCKERS, UPGRADED ALL LINE LOCKS TO "SPINLOCK" AND ADDED 2 MORE DOUBLES ON THE CABIN TOP, HARKEN SPINNAKER WINCHES, REMOVED THE FACTORY LEACHING PAINT AT THE END OF THE 1st SUMMER AND APPLIED VC TAR AND 17 WHICH HAS BEEN MAINTAINED EVERY YEAR, CONFIGURED "ALL" REEFING LINES TO THE **** PIT BY WAY OF THE NEW SPINNLOCKS, THESE INCLUDE 6 FOR THE MAINSAIL ALONE. THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL SINGLE HAND SAILER AS YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LEAVE THE **** PIT UNLESS YOU FLY THE SPINNAKER (THIS IS WHERE THE AUTO TILLER COMES INTO
PLAY) I SINGLE HAND THIS BOAT EFFORTLESSLY WITH ALL SAILS. CUSTOM TRAILER ALSO SPRAYED W/VCTAR.THE SAILS INCLUDE A FULL BATTEN MAIN WITH 2 REEFS PLUS "FLATTENING", 8.33 DACRON, 224 SQUARE FEET, THIS SAIL WAS RECONDITIONED BY BOSTON AT TIME OF FULL BATTEN INSTALLATION. THE FURLING 155% GENOA IS 4.75 DACRON WITH FOAM BATTEN ALONG THE LEADING EDGE AND UV PROTECTIVE COVERING ON THE TRAILING EDGE. THIS ONE WAS ALSO RECONDITIONED AT TIME OF "MAIN". THE SPINNAKER IS A TRI RADIAL WITH 33 PANELS IN "DARK"BLUE, RED AND PURPLE, 0.75 NYLON AND 737 SQUARE FEET. THE SELF TACKING FURLING, 100% GENOA HAS HAD VERY LITTLE USE BECAUSE OF THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE 155%. IT IS 7.5 DACRON AND MEASURES 194 SQUARE FEET. MAINSAIL AND TILLER COVERS ARE BLACK TO MATCH THE AWLGRIP MAST. AGAIN, THESE REQUIRE NO WORK.ALL GEAR INCL. E-MAIL FOR TRAILER PICTURE.SEE "WWW.ABBOTTBOATS.COM" FOR ALL SPECS
