Summerly – A one of a kind family cruiser.
This great cruising boat has it all! With a 3 stateroom layout, Galley to port amidships, large saloon, and stand up engine room with work bench, the Transpac Mark II series offers an excellent value in the genre' of family blue water cruisers. The Master stateroom of the Mark II edition boasts a MONSTER berth and three "pirate" windows in the transom.
This vessel offers stability and an unparalleled level of safety.
The extra-spacious Master cabin plus two guest cabins provide great accommodations and this wonderful sail boat offers good sailing performance, and a hull built for world cruising!
Summerly has been meticulously maintained. The current owner learned to sail in the 1970s from the original owner and bought the boat directly from the original owner. So this wonderful sailboat has been “in the family” since it was christened and the two owners have gone to great length to care for this wonderful vessel, and this vessel has provided untold joy for both owners.
Summerly received a major refit in 2013 and she has been continually upgraded since including: New sails, new sail covers, new bimini, new cushions (interior and exterior), new electronics, refurbished the entire engine and generator, all new hoses and pipes, new fixtures and faucets, resealed and recaulked the entire teak deck (including over 1500 new teak plugs), new hatches and new hatch covers, new instruments, new air conditioning unit, new engine exhaust system (and handmade exhaust covers), new water heater and new electrical wiring. Summerly had complete new hull Allgrip paint job (from white to blue) in 2015.
Summerly’s interior has been painstakingly maintained and the teak interior has to be seen to be believed.
SUMMERLY HAS A NEW BOTTOM, ANODES , SERVICE SHAFT AND RUDDER LOGS JUNE 2018.
