"CIMBA" is Cris Crafts flagship model for thier entery into the sail boat market. She is over built at 18000 lbs. net.
The decks are 3/8" solid glass and is 1 3/4" at the turn of the keel. We have been repowered with an Yanmar 30hp, with a 21" prop, we can reach 7 1/2 knts under sail or power. we have seen 30 knt. winds on the beam under full sail and did not put the rail under. This is a simple, strong, safe boat.
She is hull #3, Later they used the same s&s hull design to
make the Carribbean. We love the well protected cockpit and the wind sheild. We are very happy with our choice. We would love to here from other Sail Yacht owners to share Ideas.

"Mischief" is a wonderful boat. ChrisCraft built an stiff and heavy cruiser, and made it into a wonderful weekender. We have even won several club races here on the Neuse with her, granted it was blowing 20 knots and she pulled away from the others. She is able to handle a fresh breeze comfortably. The well protected cockpit makes you feel even more secure. She is a center cockpit boat with lower freeboard than many aft cockpit boats. Her lines are unmistakable. She carries 120 gallons of fuel and also water, her mast height is around 45ft. We thoroughly enjoy the huge cockpit and have entertasined as many as seven adults comfortably with a true total of 15 one time(it was a bit crowded but a hell of a party). Our boat has been overhauled completely and has several nice enhancements. There are an enlarged aft cabin to sleep a double bed athwartship, the hard windshield is gone to allow for more ventilation, the galley and head in the main cabin have been switched to provide a large galley. And the previously upper berths in the forward cabin have been removed to provide more living area and storage. We love this boat and would recommend the boat to anyone. Granted they are old and some are in need of repair but they quality boats for there time. If you can find one in good condition grab it cause it will be you best boat yet. In addition there is also a Chris Craft sail boat Club that has formed for more information if you want it.

Well we just completed an eleven day trip from NC to Sarasota FL. The whole east coast in 7 days. Not too bad eh, I would highly recommend this boat to anyone, anytime. That is along as the boat has an extensive survey by a QUALIFIED surveyor. Any way Take care and email me if I can help you.

Pros: Bullet proof solid fg hull
Cons: extra deep center cockpit might take on too much water in rough conditions

We took Mischief down to a bare hull re-built and modified her over 8 years. She then carried us from MN, out the Great Lakes, down to South America, over to Central America and back to Florida, over 3 years without a hitch. We'd love to hear from her current owners.

So far so good. Bella Philomena first owned by the producer of "Creature from the black lagoon" has been everywhere. We are the new owners. Not a whole lot of sail time yet but the boat is a tank, rides well, looks good doing it and both the brooker and surveyor want a call if we decided to sell as they both fell in love with her lines once we cleand the crap the last owner had piled on, off. She just needed a bath.
Home port for the boat is Homer Alaska. It was when we bought her in Hawaii and I just happen to live in homer Alaska. Sailing plans include the entire pacific, Alaska all the way down to antarticia. The wife is not so keen on that part. Id also like to spend a season in the caribbean where Im working right now.
For an "old" boat itis in great shape and has never blistered. I sails well even for me with my limited sail time. Id buy it again and pay more if needed.

Pros: Robust build, massive storage and tankage
Cons: Tight living quarters

Salacia , a 1964 Sailyacht 35, is a very strongly built craft that has been a pleasure in conditions good to pretty bad. Solid and reassuring in a blow, sails amazingly well considering her "motor-sailor" designation. I love this boat!
