Aerie is easily the best CS Merlin to come on the market. The boat is in immaculate condition & the systems are current & extensive with a full turnkey inventory. The keel is the preferred shoal draft long fin & the bottom has been barrier coated. Highlights of the inventory include dinghy & davits, power windlass, updated genoa, new house batteries, and full cockpit canvas. Aerie was the 91 boat show model & sports a full walk through transom/ swim platform & the more open interior with the improved companionway & extra cabinetry. Both inside & out, she stills shows like a show boat. The current owners are the second owners & apart from doing the loop in 2006, Aerie has been Great Lakes sailed. Of particular note, Aerie has a Yanmar diesel.
The owners are retiring from sailing.
