HONU is a classic Chuck Paine designed hull originally built by Able Marine and customized and upgraded by her current owners who worked with Chuck Paine and Mark Fitzgerald on the improvements. Keeping to the philosophy of bluewater sailors like the Pardey’s and James Baldwin she has been modified and equipped for cruising with the simplest of systems. In that respect she is as suitable for a long range cruise as well as an afternoon sail. The centerboard traditionally installed on the Able Whistler 32 was eliminated and the engine replaced with an ingenious installation of a quiet and reliable four stroke outboard in a well in the cockpit that tilts completely out of the water when sailing for smooth flow (and nothing to catch on lobster pots...).
As her appearance and condition will attest, Honu has been lovingly maintained by her third owners since her launch in 1981. She is well equipped and is currently stored and maintained by Morris Yachts and is only available due to health concerns of the owners.
Honu is sitting in inside storage and is easy to see and needs very little to be ready to launch and go sailing this summer.
RECENT PRICE REDUCTION - SHE IS A GREAT VALUE AND WELL WORTH COMING TO SEE IN PERSON.
