PLEIADES is of teak construction with copper rivets & bronze screws. This is a sound, proven vessel that cruised from Maine to the Bahamas many times. Pleiades has a 6'3" headroom, sleeps 4 and was recently re-powered with a Beta diesel 25 hp. The boat has been chartered out of Islesboro many summers and is owned by a knowledgeable sailor. The boat is well appointed and has been thoughtfully maintained.
Pleiades is ready for viewing in Islesboro, Maine.
