Fiberglass Gentleman's Day-Sailor on Buzzards Bay

posted Jun 9, 2014, 10:20 AM by Danielle Lawson

For sale is my International One Design Sailboat (IOD) . Built in 1988 by Able Marine in Southwest Harbor Maine and sailed in the Northeast Harbor fleet. She was moved to the Fishers Island Fleet in 2008 and raced there until I purchased her in 2010, and moved her to the Buzzards Bay area. Originally set up as a one design race boat complete with custom pedestal in the center of the cockpit to handle most running rigging, I have spared no expense in transforming her into a sleek, fast Gentleman's Day-Sailor. She is easily solo-sailed or can be a great platform for a crew. She can remain a wonderful Gentleman's Day-Sailor or with very little effort can be legally raced in any IOD class race or regatta.
