If you are looking for an Offshore Cruising vessel, please come and inspect one of the finest and well thought out passagemakers this office has seen. WONDER shows like a nearly new vessel, even though she is 22 years old. Her present owners purchased her three years ago, and regrettably are selling her. The last two owners have primarily cruised New England and Maine waters. She is extremely well equipped with all the extras that serious cruisers are looking for: generator, 2 zone air conditioning, Hurricane diesel heater with 2 thermostats, 12V windlass, Garmin electronics, new batteries, 4 solar panels, a self-steering vane, new S/S standing rigging, 2011 sails, and a full Sunbrella cockpit enclosure. The transom has a platform for easy boarding from the dinghy. The boat has it all! Please call us for your inspection, and we thank you for your serious interest.
