BACCARA III is a custom sailing vessel designed by Ted Hood and built in Maine by the acclaimed Lyman Morse Boatyard. To date she has had just four owners, with her present owners owning her since 2015. Health reasons are forcing the sale. The current owner has replaced most systems aboard and the boat must be considered "Turn Key" ready to cruise. BACCARA III is a capable and seakindly sailboat that, with her ketch rig and shoal draft keel centerboard hull design, can still transit north/south via the U.S. east coast Inland Waterway. Board up, she draws less than six feet, and with her centerboard down, she sails well to weather. She is currently located on the Carribbean Island of St. Maarten and can be seen by appointment.
BACCARA III has three private sleeping cabins. There are two staterooms -- guest forward and master aft -- with a third single cabin forward of the salon. Joinery is varnished teak interspersed with white intermediate bulkheads in the galley and staterooms; her soles are varnished teak and holly.
Spacious V-berth stateroom is forward with two hanging lockers, lots of drawers and under-bunk storage. A very big overhead hatch and two opening ports provide light and ventilation to the stateroom. Enclosed head has a tub and shower and is accessed directly from forward stateroom as well as from the passageway.
Opposite the head to port is the third cabin which houses a single berth, hanging locker, sink, hatch and opening portlight.
The main salon is unusually spacious. The dining area with L-shaped settee and two swivel chairs provides comfortable seating for six. Lockers and shelves are outboard. Aft is an efficient, well-laid-out U-shaped galley. Opposite the galley is a comprehensive sit-down navigation station with full desk. An abundance of natural daylight makes BACCARA III's salon inviting, complements of overhead hatches and large portlights.
The passageway to the aft cabin contains a big built-in freezer, microwave oven and set of three big drawers and storage.
The master stateroom is aft and has upsized and comfortable single berths to port and starboard, and ensuite head with shower. The master has two overhead hatches, four opening ports, a cedar-lined hanging locker, bookshelves and various drawers and lockers.
All ports, including hull ports, are stainless and opening. BACCARA III is equipped with storm shutters for all port lights and 1/2” Lexan storm windows for the main cabin windows and all hatches. Port lights and the companionway have screens. All berths, including salon benches (which can be used as sea berths), have lee cloths. There are hand rails and fiddles throughout.
Everything about BACCARA III below decks is best described as extremely comfortable. There is nothing about BACCARA III’s belowdeck accommodations that was squeezed in.
The cockpit is of the notable Hood design with easy access to the deck through coaming cutouts. The cockpit table has drop leaves that will accommodate six and has an insulated well for drinks. Starboard side of the cockpit forward also features a navigation table with chart storage.
The U-shaped galley is designed for offshore use, yet is within easy reach of the salon dining or the cockpit. All countertops have fiddles. A bar is located next to the galley with ice-maker and bottle storage.
THE ENGINE ROOM HAS BEEN TOTALLY REFITTED IN 2020 WITH NEW WIRING, BREAKERS, SWITCHES AND THE PERKINS DIESEL WAS OVERHAULED.
With her centerboard up, BACCARA III only draws 5'-9", and with board down, she draws approximately 11 feet.
