Seller says bring offers!
End of 2015 season inspection by owner revealed minor fuel tank corrosion which is typical on these Downeasters. It is not an immediate safety concern but the seller has decided not to tackle the project and has reduced the asking price $6K as tank replacement estimates are between $4-6K. The headliner has been removed as it was time to replace. The seller is about to install wood veneer instead of cloth as it is easier to remove to address top deck if necessary. All filters replaced and oil sample came back 100%. She was just hauled for winter storage but can be inspected.
She will sleep six owners and guests and you will enjoy your time on board both in her soft sailing ride and at your favorite anchorage. She is a well maintained cutter-rigged, full-keel, heavy displacement tiller steering yacht. Comfortable and roomy, heavily constructed cruiser, capable of coastal and offshore cruising. Ideal for those seeking simplicity and safety. This boat has been in the northeast its entire life, spending at least half the time under winter cover. It has not been hard cruised (but is cruise-ready), and only used for family sailing during long weekends and the occasional extended holidays. Shas many professionally designed custom features with extensive upgrades (standing and running rigging, sails, diesel engine, ground tackle/anchor platform/bowsprit, plumbing and electrical, hatches/ports, etc.) Combined with tiller steering, cutter rig, heavy displacement, high bulwark, strong sail inventory (10 oz. Dacron, extra reinforced triple stitched, oversized bronze hanks, multiple reef points, Dutchman flaking) she is uncomplicated and extremely seaworthy capable of offshore and coastal cruising. Below deck she is comfortable and roomy, with 6’6” headroom, an uncluttered traditional layout, beautiful teak interior, ideal for those seeking simplicity and safety.
Gracie Emmett is equipped with an 1992 upgraded Westerbeke 38B four cylinder 37 hp (max 3600 rpm ) diesel engine, which provides over 50% more power than the factory installed 24 hp diesel engine typically found in DE32s. This increased power allows the boat to motor effortlessly at 7 knots, at mid throttle, for extended periods without over working the engine; however, the essential advantage of this extra engine capacity becomes very evident in difficult conditions when you need to rely on extra horsepower. There are less than 1,400 (original) engine hours on the engine and the conventional rule of thumb is that marine diesels are due for rebuild after 5,000 hours of use, so there is plenty of useful life left, without major engine expenses.
Her owner is moving on towards his next great yacht. He will consider any serious offer. She can be seen by appointment only by contacting your listing broker today. If you are in the market for a great sailing yacht in this size range you should be sure to make an appointment to come on board.
