1982 Warwick Cardinal
| If you are ready to start your round the world cruise, bring your gear and food aboard and cast off the lines on this fully equipped, rugged blue-water cruise ready sloop, a New Zealand built, former racer that has been round the world 1.5 times including round the horn. |
While she shows her age, she is still as sturdy as the day she was launched.
It is a great boat for a couple or small family to start their cruising dream on.
While this boat may feel a little cozy for a 42’ boat, it has loads of storage space needed for extended cruising and comes fully equipped with all navigation, safety, self-steering, autopilot, dinghy, tools, manuals, rigging and sails needed for easy, successful cruising.
Its ease of handling is demonstrated by the current owner, in his early 70’s, doing extensive solo cruising to St Johns, NL and to Bermuda and down to the Grenadines and Bahamas thru a few gales from its home port in Groton, CT.
The boat comes with an extensive inventory of spare equipment available upon request, equipment parts and consumables plus redundant critical navigation equipment, and an extensive set of both owner manufacturer generated user manuals for operating the vessel.
Construction Cosmetic layer of fiberglass over a rot-proofed, triple diagonal, cold molded hull of Kauri pine.
The advantages of this hull over fg is that it can be as strong, is lighter and runs much quieter at sea.
The deck is coated with Sani-Tred Liquid Rubber Base over 3/8” teak planks bonded & screwed to 3/8” marine plywood.
The hull is attached to a 9500 lb lead fin keel.
The boat is currently docked in Groton, CT, USA and ready for pickup and cruising.
