They definitely have a good following with many happy owners. Many think it's a wooden boat because of the lapstrake shaped hull but it's all fiberglass and it adds to its beauty, with lots of wood inside it. It's built to go anywhere. 4 of them have circumnavigated and others tend to travel often.

Seeing you are in Maine, I saw this one for sale that's closest to you.

The asking price seems high to me but that's just from the limited info shown.

They are usually sold between people through the Yahoo owners group. If you were interested in getting one, join the group and post a message of your interest. Never know what comes up. Just know, even for the age, they tend to sell higher than other boats of the same vintage.

Good Luck!
