For those seeking a high performance racer/cruiser look no further! The Frers 33 is a great package. Capable of winning races yet plush enough to cruise the family in comfort. This example of the design is in very nice condition.
The two prior owners raced her just 5-10 times in 6 years of ownership on then, new racing inventory. The current owner has likewise kept the racing sails just for racing and has done just 10-12 races so while they are older sails the racing sails should be very competitive. Top that off with her new bottom job including droping the keel off, re-fairing it and rebedding it, refairing the rudder, and stripping and barrier coating the bottom just two years ago PLUS refinishing the topsides with Alex-Seal and you have a great package! She has been in inside storage during the off season the past 3 years and was not launched in 2014.
