OYSTER SLOOP - 1980 21' "WESTWIND" GAFF RIGGED, INCLUDES TRAILER AND DINGHY
OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY !!! "Westwind" is ready to launch to enjoy some fall sailing. She recently cruised in Oyster Bay, NY and is an extremely seaworthy sloop. This wonderfully kept mahogany over oak oyster sailboat was developed for Kitty Mellon by Crosby Boat Works in Cape Cod in 1979, and introduced in 1980 in Barnstable, Ma. She is a charming tiller boat with a striking black hull- a sight to witness. This oyster sloop was made for superficial water - such as bays, creeks, etc. " Westwind " was based upon the design of "Mystic Annie" which is a 1880 Sandbagger yacht located in Mystic, Connecticut.
Equipped with a Mercury 5 hp gas engine , gorgeous bronze fittings and a brand new deck developed with top grade marine plywood with Dynel covering (workmanship carried out by Andrew Nanacheck in Boothbay, Maine). There is a tiller, barn door rudder and freeboard determining 12". She has a complete suit of sails (2 sets of main and jib - one set is dacron and the other is Egyptian cotton). Mast and boom Sitka spruce. Equipped with bilge and back up bilge pump.
