Maine Lady(Jan Mar)
Price Reduced - $375,000

An exceptional yacht, with all the desired features of a Ted Hood design and solid construction of Lyman-Morse. Built for a knowledgeable owner who desired the option of using the Intercoastal Waterway, with reasonable draft, and a rig that permitted that choice, while still retaining the sailing qualities for which a Hood design is well known. The ease of the hydraulic system allows a couple or single-hander to easily sail Maine Lady. Fuel capacity allows an 1100 mile range under power. With her storm sails and safety gear, she is ready to cross an ocean.  As one may easily see from reading the listing, this yacht has been well maintained without regard to cost by her present owner of 14 years, and offers a rare opportunity to acquire a superb yacht at a reasonable price.

Layout and Design

Accommodations

Three private staterooms, with two heads. The interior is in the Herreshoff style, beautifully finished with rich teak, airy and well lit by windows, deck hatches and port lights. Ash and teak ceilings through-out. A teak and holly cabin sole compliments the interior. Reverse cycle Marine Air provides air conditioning and heat.

From forward, a large V-berth stateroom with two hanging lockers, lots of drawers and under bunk storage. One very large hatch and two opening ports provide light and ventilation. An enclosed head with tub and shower can be accessed from this stateroom or the passageway.

Opposite the head to port, is a small cabin with a single berth, hanging locker, sink, hatch and opening port light.

The Main Salon is very large, with dinette to starboard with seating for six, lockers and shelves outboard. Aft of the dinette is a spacious U-shaped galley. Opposite the galley is a comprehensive sit-down navigation station with full desk.

Continuing aft, the passageway contains a large built-in freezer, microwave oven and set of three large drawers with storage above.

The Master Stateroom offers two single fore and aft berths, port and starboard, with an ensuite head with shower. Two hatches, four opening ports, cedar-lined hanging locker, bookshelves and various drawers and lockers.

All berths including the salon benches (can be used as sea berths) have lee cloths; there are hand rails and fiddles throughout.

There are storm shutters for all port lights and ½” Lexan storm windows for the main cabin windows. All hatches, port lights and the companionway have screens.

The cockpit is a traditional Hood design, spacious, offering easy access to the deck, and seating large enough to sleep upon. The cockpit table has drop-leaves that will dine six and an insulated well for drinks. Starboard side of the cockpit forward also features a nav table with chart storage.
