1983 Santa Cruz 50

SC 50 SistershipFast is fun. And if you don't believe that, you have not been sailing on a Santa Cruz 50.  This is the kind of boat whose speed and responsiveness make your heart beat faster.  Built by the famous Santa Cruz Yachts in California and designed by Bill Lee, the workmanship is unbeatable and the speed is unbelievable. This rare one-of-a-kind fresh water SC50 is now available.. This boat has lived her entire life within 30 miles of Chicago (with the usual very fast forays up to Mackinac Island).

The wide open interior gives the best possible combination of easy sail handling and comfortable crew accommodations.   The dining table is a large centerline dropleaf which is currently in storage.  The interior was also completely stripped and repainted and refurbished when the rest of the boat was painted two years ago for a clean and fresh look.  All of the interiors cushions were redone at the same time. There is a great galley with gimbaled propane stove with oven and a huge icebox with Adler Barbour refrigeration  There are two other large coolers with space for 10 cases of beer. There is an enclosed head.

All safety gear for Offshore category one races is included with the boat.  There are two life rafts with space for 14 crew.  The rafts have current certification.  All Solas flares were updated in 1997.  She has a carbon fiber spinnaker pole and an aluminum reaching strut.  Halyards are rope to wire and were updated in 1996, running backs are Spectra.
