1979 Island Trader 41

Scituate, Massachusetts


Classic full keel ketch that can go anywhere or make a great live-aboard, Kara Lyn has been in the same family since new!  Might need some electronics and a little updating but this boat is sail ready now.  Lying in Scituate Harbor and can be seen anytime.  A lot of boat for the money.
