Description: Adams 35 Round bilge steel PROJECT
This is an opportunity to own a meticulously rebuilt Australian Registered round bilge steel sloop, which regrettably has to be sold due to health reasons. The hull, including keel, has been completely reconstructed and strengthened to higher than original specifications with no expense spared. Engine to propellor as new. Mast and standing rigging replaced and completed. Nine sails in good condition. The only remaining task on this beloved project is for the buyer to complete refitting the interior, hence this exceedingly competitive price.
