1978 Tripp Mercer 44

Fairhope, Alabama

$65,000

The Doctor has said reduce the price. He can't handle the boat any longer but wants it to go to a loving sailing family who will continue to take pride in it.

 

This William Tripp design as seen on the Hinkley Bermuda 40, and Columbia 39, 50 , and 57 models as well, places his Mercer 44 in the top tear of serious Blue Water performance cruisers.  Built by Cape Cod Ship Building, in MA, the full keel with center board gives these boats a very "sea kindly" motion and with board down extremely good "windward" performance. Yet with board up, shallow enough for the Bahama Banks and the Gulf Coast bayous. Synia is a two time class winner of the Antigua race, so you know there is serious sailing performance. It features air conditioning, new propane stove/oven, new teak deck boxes for propane tanks, rebuilt 50 hp Westerbeke diesel and a beautiful mahogany and teak interior, with teak and holly sole.

If you are saying you need to "get away",  you can sail away on Synia and look classy doing it.

 The Synia, with it's dark blue hull ( Awl-grip 2016) screams classic sailboat.  You need to come take a look.  Recent survey available w/offer.
