VOLANTIS (Greek for Flying Fish) is a beautiful dark blue ketch that
turns heads everywhere she goes. She is a Kaufman design with striking
lines. Her teak decks are in great shape having been replaced in 2002
and recaulked in 2013. Her engine has had a complete professional
rebuild and has only 100 hours since rebuild. The builder Dickerson in
Maryland has been written up in Ferenc Mate's "The World's Best
Sailboats" She is intercoastal capable and has been sailed
extensively by her owner who has had her since 1984. Her interior is
"Herreshoff style" with white bulkheads with natural wood
trim. She has three private staterooms, a big galley and a very
VOLANTIS is a strong capable ketch that has been well maintained and
is a delight to see.
This is a very nice, very well maintained C&C 35 mk III. She is a
great sailing boat that is also a very successful PHRF racer. Sailed
locally in the non spinnaker fleet, she is a regular winner. Her
condition is so nice that you would not guess that she is raced. Her
keel joint is perfect and her deck is in great condition. Her care
includes removing the keel in 2004 and inspecting the keel bolts,
reinforcing the keel stub and glassing the keel joint. This was a
factory recommended upgrade for all mk III 35s.
Please note that the photos were taken after the fall leaves had come
down and prior to getting her deck cover so there are signs of leaves
and pine tags on deck.
This is a very nice simple Cal 33. She is set up for performance
sailing and the owner has sailed her in several offshore singlehanded
races. All of her systems are in good working order, her sails are
recent and her standing rigging was replaced just 5 years ago. She has
new hatches and port lights. The Cal 33 is well known as a very good
sailing boat that can cruise and PHRF race well.
This is a very nice Marlow/Hunter 33e. She is a one owner boat that
has had excellent care. Her unique swimplatform adds a fun element to
cruising for the family that is not found in other boats of her size.
She is well equipped and ready to cruise right now. She also has a
complete cockpit enclosure to extend your seasons.
This is a FAST FUN Boat. Ready to sail in your PHRF Fleet.
PHRF of the Chesapeake has her at 96 and you can race with 3 or 4 in
a boat that is easy to rig and go.
"Most production boats are conceived with a design brief from a
builder who has a targeted market in mind. Not so the Landing School
30 (LS-30). It’s built by students at a non-profit boatbuilding and
design college. The Landing School and its resident designer, Steve
Dalzell, design and build boats as part of the curriculum: selling
them is an afterthought. As a result, only two or three LS30s will be
built each year, which means the school may have a new problem: this
cold-molded wooden rocketship just might create more demand than the
students can supply".
