Sweet-Looking Sailboat Priced Right

While sailboats are often prized for their relaxing pace on the water, the current market for sailboats is blazingly fast. Here’s another recent example from our Classy Classifieds. The owner of this sweet-looking 1974 Cal 3-30 posted it on our website on 9/14 — just before the September 15 deadline to make the October issue. They called to say it was sold on 10/9. Yikes!

How did the ad read? She was described as, “Sloop rig with tiller. Nighthawk has 6 sails, 8 winches, Harken traveler, galley, nav station, GPS, standard VHF radio. Instruments and controls for Yanmar 2GM diesel w/low hours all in cockpit. Head w/shower, V-berth plus 3 bunks. Two 12V gel batteries w/trickle charger and 120V shore power. Life jackets and associated safety items included. The owner and I enjoyed this boat with our families for many years. He has moved East and I intend to sell it as he has instructed me. Please call for an appointment and I will meet you at the boat.”

Someone now has a great way to slow down and enjoy magnificent Bay Area sailing.
