"SCORPIO" - Staysail Schooner
"SCORPIO" is a 1927 E.B. Schock-designed Classic Schooner built in Southern California by the famous Dittmar Yard of Costa Mesa during the golden years of American Schooners. 52' over-all and 42' LOD, she was recently meticulously restored/rebuilt; but, owing to the Owner's health issues, her exterior cosmetic appearance has deteriorated somewhat. & she is due for exterior paint, oil & varnish. Nevertheless, she continues to be in excellent structural & operational condition and represents an unique opportunity to own a piece of West Coast Yachting History. A powerful performer, she is built of Douglas Fir over Oak and bronze fastened, featuring beautiful teak decks, a full compliment of sails, electronics, and vintage hardware. She has wheel steering, a 55hp diesel auxiliary with 400±hrs, 2yr-5yr old Pineapple sails, a 9’ inflatable tender, and was last hauled in 2015. "SCORPIO" is the stuff of which dreams are made as well as being a highly pedigreed & capable blue-water cruiser. Master Mariners' Regatta anyone? How about South Seas adventure? Classic sailing in the Gatsby Tradition awaits you ... why wait?
