Lizzy is a completely customized sailing vessel designed and re-fit for offshore cruising. She is totally self-contained and is a must-see for the serious cruiser. Only one owner had possession of Lizzy Prior to her present owners. Lizzy was purchased with the intent to upgrade her for world cruising. She would ideally be strengthened, set up to be self-contained, comfortable, and dry. CALL THE LISTING BROKER FOR MORE DETAILS. 

Lizzy has undergone a complete re-fit and two major upgrades since her present owner purchased her in 2001. At Present she’s in need of some TLC and is priced accordingly with her present condition. She was originally a Great Lakes Freshwater boat and has comfortably taken her present owners through some heavy Lake Michigan storms. In 2003 she was transported to the Chesapeake where she enjoyed new adventures in cruising.
In 2005 she had undergone a Major refit sparing no expense to a better than new condition. This was to serve her owners a retirement cruising adventure. She traversed the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway down to Charleston, SC and from there onto the Bahamas.
In 2006 Lizzy cruised happily through the Bahamas. Lizzy is ready to serve some younger owner/s an outstanding cruising adventure to anywhere they choose. If a cruising lifestyle is tugging at your sleeve Lizzy will not disappoint. She will take good care of you just as she had her previous and present owners.
