Your Day on the Water just got better!

“Sleekit” offers classic cruising comfort with a performance hull and rig combination by Sparkman & Stephens that can be sailed solo or shorthanded.  She has a distinct look that will turn heads when she enters a harbor and cause you to pause on your trip to shore.

Tartan sailboats are known for their solid, high quality construction.  The interior is oiled teak with white overhead, eight opening ports, fore & main cabin deck hatches and a teak and holly cabin sole.  “Sleekit” has the classic warmth and appeal of a true yacht.

The forward cabin qualifies as the owner’s stateroom with a large hanging locker, port & starboard shelf space, two swivel lights, large foredeck hatch, and articulated door for privacy.  A seat cushion comes up to bridge the area between the 6’04” berths, making one large continuous double berth when desired.

The head is to port with a manual head & holding tank, molded sink and counter top, pressure hot & cold water, mirror, handheld shower, teak shower grate, and independent shower sump pump, linen locker, and opening port w/screen.

The salon’s starboard settee makes a comfortable single berth with storage behind and outboard.  The port settee also has storage behind and outboard and can serve as double berth.  The dinette table folds up against the forward bulkhead.  There is a double quarter berth to port.  Good light and ventilation are provided by both reading and dome lights, courtesy lights, multiple opening ports w/screens, deck hatches, and the companionway.  The interior grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.

The C-shaped galley to starboard has storage galore, stainless steel sink near center line with a cold water foot pump, hot and cold pressure water with a 10 gallon, 110v AC/engine heated hot water heater (2012), a large, insulated ice box, and a gimbaled, three burner Gas Systems CNG stove with oven.

The forward facing navigation station is to port at the front of the quarter berth with a 30”X42” chart table.

There are additional storage drawers under and cabinet outboard.
