$4,300 USD

The owner bought this boat in 2015

General condition and any additional information

A rare chance to own one of less than 12 of these seaworthy, luxury dinghies built by Jerry Husted, builder of Nordic Tugs. No expense was spared in the original build and the same spirit informed the refitting and refinishing. This is an original with all its original equipment and accessories, along with custom additions. (Replicas of this boat are made from same hull molds by Legacy Boat Builders, and sell for more than $10K without trailer). The boat is in excellent condition as it was stored inside most of its life and only gently used. The boat can be powered by rowing, sailing, or use of small outboard.
