'Sarah' is a very solid well-equipped example of a Pearson 424 ketch as you can see from the photos below. She still needs some attention but really just add-ons and custom features to make her all your own. She's priced accordingly, allowing for the needed items to make her yours. 

For example, the following needs improvement:

  • Sail covers and dodger are functional but could be replaced;
  • Needs bottom job; 
  • Jib is a composite sail and not is great shape but still very useable; 
  • Interior cushions still functional but could use a refresh; 
  • Generator hasn’t been run since 2015;
  • Air conditioning needs to be replaced;
  • Running rigging is worn and dirty.
