The opening photos shows what a classic boat this was.  Was, becasue, unfortunate she has been neglected since this photo was taken.  This boat needs rescued by another loving family before it's too late. 

She has a good complement of sails in good condition, over-sized winches for easy of handling and can be sailed as a sloop or cutter. Built for heavier winds and cruising, configured as she is she can be a good club racer.  It's Yanmar diesel has been recently serviced.

Accommodations
  •   With the abundance of oiled teak, a soft leatherette headliner, bronze
    opening ports, and teak and holly cabin sole, the interior of the
    Independence 31 is a true work of the craftsman’s art.

  • Forward cabin has full size double berth with hanging locker, shelf
    w/fiddle rail, cabinets, deck hatch, and bronze opening port.

  •  Head is to starboard with Jabsco manual head & holding tank, stainless
    steel sink with hot and cold running water system, counter space
    w/fiddle rail, cabinet, storage shelves, and bronze opening port.

  •  The salon starboard settee slides out to form a comfortable double berth
    with storage underneath, behind and outboard. The port settee has a
    foot well into the hanging locker to convert it to a single berth with

    table seats four. For ventilation there is a screened deck hatch, four
    bronze opening ports w/screens, and solid teak companionway drop
    boards. Two oil lamps supplement the 12 volt lighting. The port and
    starboard overhead, teak handholds and cruising interior make
    movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.
