32' Crealock Dreadnought Cutter - Dreadnaught Cruising Sloop Cutter For Sale
MIO PADRE is a William Crealock designed double ended cutter with fiberglass nonskid decks and solid layup below the waterline. The hull was built by Dreadnought Boatworks of Carpinteria California, and shipped by rail cross country where she was owner finished to a very high standard. Under her current ownership she has had numerous upgrades. She has been sitting out of the water for about 1.5 years and does not look as fine as she once did, but could come back again in the right hands. She is still in sound shape, and has many years of sailing ahead.
She is attractively priced and the seller is motivated to sell.
These capable double enders, can be found cruising all over the world, and this boat is ready for the next owners adventure. She shows much newer than her age would otherwise indicate as a result of her current owner's efforts to maintain her.
MIO PADRE can be seen in Quincy MA close to public transportation and Logan International airport.
This boat has Fiberglass Decks!
