The Sparkman and Stephens designed Northern 29 is first and foremost a very good and capable sailboat. She has a V-shaped underbody, skeg mounted rudder and a very good ballast to displacement ratio. Her cockpit is long but not wide and this relates to the IOR rule she was built to. As a matter of fact she was designed as a half-ton cup racer cruiser. Her underwater profile and rugged rig make her a supremely comfortable boat in any weather condition. She has a very pleasant motion and is not tiring to sail.
The builders of Northern Yachts took pride in maintaining good build quality and SYBARITE has survived very well. She was completely refitted in 2008 with new decks, hull paint and epoxy barrier coat underwater and doesn't need much to provide a new owner with years of pleasure. She has a newer sails and her engine was overhauled five years ago.
Her most important feature is her very roomy and sensibly laid out interior. Her v-berth is very large with more than enough room for two real sized people. She has a comfortable settee berth in the salon and a dinette that drops down to make up a reasonable sized double berth.
She truly is one of those boats whose condition belies her age thanks to the last three sets of owners who lavished her with a great deal of love and attention.
