Seller's Comments and Description:

L. Francis Herreshoff designed some magnificent vessels from day sailors to the famous Mobjack series. This Mobjack copy was built in 1987 by H.A. Bauer & J.A. Guinn out of fiberglass with an on deck length of 46 feet and an overall length of 51 feet which includes the teak bowsprit. The solid fiberglass hull was built with a full keel and protected rudder weighing about 28,000 pounds and has about half that weight in ballast. The aft cockpit is very comfortable with a full width bench across the stern, a 44 inch teak wheel and the sheet winches within reach of the helm. The vessel has 4 working sails and a brand new ATN Spinnaker with sock. Both head sails have Hood roller furlings and both the main and mizzen sails have lazy jacks. The SS Rod rigging is in good condition and some of the SS chain plates are external. The cabin top has 4 huge opening hatches and 1 forward bow hatch. The cabin top has 13 opening ports and 10 of them are new SS ports. The boat was built with very high toe rails for safety, easy walk around decks and a step down cockpit with 3 large lockers for access and storage as well as 1 locker for the propane tank. There is also a deck hatch forward of the cockpit that allows great engine access as well as 3 opening doors to the engine from the salon. The current owner had started to rebuild the interior, and had the 62hp Perkins completely rebuilt now showing only 10 hours. New cushions were purchased and the project continues. Southwind is in sail away condition still needing some interior finishing. If this beauty is of interest, please call Barry at 954-873-1800 so you can see the boat and make your offer.
