'Sea Otter Too', a Columbia 29 Sailboat For Sale

by Catherine
(San Diego, CA USA)

A Classic! As advertised in 1962, “Sparkman & Stephens, world renowned naval architects and designers of the exciting COLUMBIA 29, have ideally conceived a boat with all the comforts and sailing ease desired in a small ocean cruising sloop, yet, not deterring from sleek lines and supreme performance to prevent the COLUMBIA 29 from being the boat-to-beat while racing. Sailing thoroughbreds from the boards of Sparkman & Stephens have won, and are continuing to win without par, the world’s major sailing contests. This tradition of performance and design standard is all evident in the brilliant COLUMBIA 29.”

SEA OTTER TOO is a 1965 29' Colombia Sailboat-Sloop constructed of fiberglass with a fine entry, rounded bilges, hung rudder, full keel with an inboard engine for propulsion with electronics and navigational aids. There is a large foredeck area, mid-deck and after cockpit with helm with all sail controls led aft. The interior has a large open salon area with settee, galley and seating. There are two steaming berths aft with an enclosed head forward with a V-berth at the bow. This vessel is appointed in gelcoat, paint, cloth, fabric and select woods.

Comments:
We have had SEA OTTER TOO since 2001. She has brought us lots of enjoyment as we have taken her primarily around San Diego Bay and local coastal waters. She is comfortable and easy to maneuver.

Mobility issues have kept us from spending more on her the last several years. We are looking to find her new owner who will take her out, enjoy her and provide the TLC that she deserves.

Great Starter Yacht. Easy to sail. Full keel gives great stability. Does well in weather. Needs some cosmetic work. Can sail today.
