Seller note:

Live aboard or sail the world in this Spencer 51 Ketch. Spencer Boats LTD in British Columbia built custom sailboats to owners specifications and their 51/53s were designed for long range cruising. If you visit the Spencer Yacht Owners Group web siteyou will find owner's tales of many cruises. Thirty of the 51 & 53 models were built and here we have an excellent example of why they are still so popular. Mary Baker is a three-stateroom ketch with beautiful lines and plenty of room. Each stateroom has a double berth with the forward stateroom being a v-berth. The salon is large, open, and tall with lots of natural light.

Between the helm & chart station you have the following instruments: Danforth compass, Standard Eclipse VHF radio, Standard Horizon GPS, Furuno radar, and Cetec autopilot. On deck you have a large, bimini-covered, cockpit. Sails are in exceptional condition, the AwlGrip is fresh, the thru-the-hull fittings all new, and there are stern mounted dinghy davits with Alliance dinghy with 15hp 4-stroke outboard. 6 sails + spinnaker, Lewmar 48 self-tailing winches, Pro/Furl roll furling, 3 anchors, windlass, and swim ladder.
