    Gear to aid a aging sailor

    I am 70 so I have the same concerns. The ideal boat for me , easy to handle and good flat working surfaces is the Class 40.

    What's a fair price for this boat?

    Is this the former Promises? Promises was a 1989 that sold in Annapolis in 2006 for $68,000. Just factor in 15 more years of depreciation :-) There was a 1988 that was in St Marys maybe donated to the college. She sold for 28K (Fitikoko) then went to Chicago and sold in 2008 for 36,500. 10/2008. The 2008 sale looked like a pretty sweet ride. I bought a 1984 or so NY36 for 17K, spent 125K on a refit and sold it for 21K. So noodle all that and drop the price to 29,500. if she is healthy and take $22-25

    Shipping a sailboat

    The must frustrating part of trucking boats is the late delivery. You assume they pick it up and drive to the delivery. Ha. The boat and trailer gets dropped in a storage yard waiting for a return trip in your area. Then you get the email that the trailer bearings failed and damaged a hub which is on back order. The parts just arrived but the tech's dog was hit by a car and he will not be able to install them for 9 days.

    Anyone sailed on this 1984 Farr 44 in Mt Desert ME?

    Add a carbon taller fractional rig with swept back spreaders since you need new sails anyway. Get rid of the running backs and 2 more winches. Maybe this is not the right tool for the job. Too bad she does have eyes

    Anyone sailed on this 1984 Farr 44 in Mt Desert ME?

    First thing would be to set a small dumpster next to the boat and get rid of the 5 PC's, inverters, excess batteries, freezer in the bow, 4 winches, symmetrical spinnaker gear and pole, transom mast and Flir, Sat telephone dome, unnecessary loose gear, books, spares for the spares, too many tools...

    No they were IMS44's super fast race boats

    I inspected this boat today. She is a killer package for ocean cruising and occasional ocean racing. Needs a diet, electronics update and a few sails. The cosmetics and interior comforts are impressive. Yanmar looks like it just came out of the box. Spars and topsides paint is perfect. A lot of boat for... try 100k

    Yea the dodger was added in 2016 I a told. The new keel and rudder were added in '95-'96 so you experienced those. Some race results I have found. She is capable.

    Thanks for the information. Farr designed a deep draft bulb keel and CF rudder in 1996. She was then converted from the keel/centerboard. I am a fan of the hard dodger. Cold and wet is no fun. Helps avoid salt spray entering the companionway. PHRF in the 50's so she is capable for a cruiser with gen and a/c. Add a sprit, A sails and have some deep water fun.

    I was interested in hearing from someone who has been on board or has raced or cruised on this particular boat.

    New England sailors in hibernation? Come on you know this ole girl. 35 years of sailing out of the same yard. Originally called Reindeer to replace the owners Swan 43 of the same name. Then the son renamed her and sailed her until 2018. At least that is what I have pieced together.
