This is a 1976 Ericson 29 sailboat. It’s powered by a Yanmar diesel engine with a reported 1500 hours of use on it.
There have been a lot of upgrades over the years the sellers have done including a Raymarine Chartplotter, wind indicator, autopilot, depth finder, VHS; Harken self-tailing winches, self-furling jib; self-furling main, windlass anchor system.
All new canvas installed in 2020; all new sanitation system (tank, lines, head) 2021; new self furling jib mechanism 2019.
This is a great boat. Well made and very easy to sail. You get a lot of boat for this 29-foot length
This boat is fast, stable, and well-balanced under sail. We easily reach 6 knots and more. Mainsail, large genoa, working jib. 4.5 draft. 9.3-foot beam. It sleeps 5 comfortably.
The seller has a good inflatable dinghy and outboard engine that is not included but is open to selling.
Equipment: Windlass anchor system with cockpit controls; Self Furling jib and mainsail; Self-tailing Harken winches; Raymarine Chartplotter, autopilot, depth finder, and wind indicator. whisker pole, boat hooks, life vests, bough lines, bumpers, electric bilge, new bimini, dodger, and connecting sunshade. Canvas steering wheel and winch covers. Teak companionway hatch. Alcohol-burning stovetop, top-opening icebox, working sink with electric pump, sliding door cabinets, utensil draws, and cookware storage. Fire extinguisher.
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
