This boat is beautiful! In every sense of the word, turnkey classic head turner! Philip Rhodes designed the Vanguard--a classic beauty, yet out front in every way—graceful lines, traditional sheer, comfort, livability, overall value. Third Crib was built for blue water cruising with a full lead keel, and many still sail off the Atlantic coast. Shallow draft as compared to most heavy-ballasted boats—but with increased beam for more roominess. High displacement ratio and ample ballast (4250 lb.) make her perfect for the Great Lakes: very stable and safe in heavy going, yet surprisingly nimble in light airs. This boat has been used only in fresh water and has been continuously upgraded to yacht standards.
The extensive list of upgrades is impressive! The exterior is a gorgeous blue Awlgripped hull with white striping. The interior is spotless from the bilges to the headliner. New upholstery and varnished wood surround you in traditional luxury. The 4 cylinder reliable Universal Westerbeke diesel runs perfectly, has had all scheduled maintenance. Third Crib is a complete boat from the diesel to tiller (with pilot), to roller furling; she even has A/C and heat! Roomy cockpit, abundant storage, wide deck walkways for safety when handling sails. She will pass any survey in almost Bristol condition: every system and part is practically new (2017 survey available to qualified prospects). Located at our Buffalo, NY marina, asking $34,500, far below replacement value! A must see for the sailor looking for a traditional style mini-yacht; it will not last long!
