We purchased the boat in 2012 from the original owner, who ordered her new from the CS factory in Ontario in 1984, and kept her in the Great Lakes area until relocating to Vancouver Island in 2002. She was in exceptional original condition when we bought her, and we have maintained that standard. The original gelcoat is in great condition (annual polish and wax since new). Comprehensive maintenance log for boat and mechanical systems kept since new. Operating manuals, boat drawings, receipts, etc. Numerous enhancements and upgrades since 2012 for comfortable, safe and trouble-free extended cruising. Namu is immaculately clean, well-equipped and ready to go sailing.
