LeComte Medalist 33???

I''m in the midst of purchasing a LeComte 1964 Medalist 33. I''ve searched the internet and found very little info on this boat. If anyone out there has any knowledge or experience sailing this craft, I''d really appreciate your help.

LeComte Medalist 33???

Sailed one of these a long while back. It was pretty nicely balanced. It didn''t do funny things going to leeward with the chute up, and moved along fairly well upwind too. Space below was adequate - almost roomy for the period of her design. They look distictive, with the essentially flush deck/doghouse, but purposeful. I cruised with a family from Long Island Sound to Nantucket and back, and we had a great time. Practical Sailor should have something on the design in their Used Boat Buyer''s Guide.

Try lecomteyachts.com The people there have information on the boat. I had been looking at one some time ago and they were very helpful. They have some printed material which they copied and sent to me, however I did not keep it.

LeComte Medalist 33???

Regarding buying a Medalist 33, I will selling my Medalist 33 soon. She has been on Lake Michigan for all her years (40), two months in water each. Updated with roller reefing of jib, Harken self tailing winches, much easier main sheet block and tackle system and more.

I am interested in what shape your recent Medalist is in and price range?

LeComte Medalist 33???

Hi Bob,

Thanks so much for responding to my message. We ended up buying a 1964 Medalist 33 and the interior is in excellent condition. The exterior needs some work, especially the hatches and wood trim. The asking price was $16,500, but the engine had water in it and wouldn''t run. We paid 12,500 and spent some time refurbishing the engine and luckily it is now in working order. There have been alot of people interested in our boat and if you''d like, we would be happy to tell them your asking price.

We had the original plaque stolen from her and we are wondering where we might get a rubbing so that it is possible to make another one. Also, do you know where we could purchase parts for the original galley sink and head sink water faucets?

Thanks so much,

Jennifer Ryman
