US Yacht 33, 1981


Yes, this beautiful boat is for sail. She’s a rarity; you’ll find the odd one in the Caribbean. They were built from 25-33 feet for a few years in the 1980s, on a Buccaneer pattern, a Doug Peterson design.

I love this boat. Sometimes it’s just time to move on.
This boat is fast, demanding however to be very accurately sailed. “There’s always something with a boat” and I’ve got a lot of other somethings in my life. And if my joints were ten years younger, it might be another story.

33 foot open-cabin design sailboat; high-tech feathering VARI prop; mast and rigging in excellent condition; good sail inventory including a newer main and a #1, includes a 180 genoa(!) and 2 spinnakers; the boat surveys well, needs a little cosmetic TLC but looks great from 6 feet away, and all equipment well-maintained and functional; wheel-steering, 5’5″ draft with full-lead keel, deck-stepped mast; sleeps 7 (in theory!); sink, cooler, head, stereo, VHF, anchor; dodger and full cockpit canvas enclosure; will consider trading down.

Equipment inventory:
-whisker pole;
-spinnaker pole;
-depth gauge;
-built-in cooler;
-fenders, mooring lines;
-Fortress anchor;
-4 keyhole-style PFDs;
-man-overboard pole;
-man-overboard life-sling;
-VHF radio;
-AM/FM/CD 4-speaker sound system;
-working nav-lights;
-full camper-cover, home-made by previous owner;
-6 winches, all 2-speed, and the 2 main foresail sheet winches are self-tailing.

The engine, new in 2009, is a 3-cylinder Yanmar diesel, fluids and filters changed scrupulously, with a bit over 300 hours (i.e. barely broken in). The rigging is all in excellent condition with no snags or corrosion. The life-lines have all been replaced.
