The Rustler 31 is a traditional, classic long-keeled cruiser with pretty lines and excellent performance. The design is well proven, with many ocean crossings to its credit, a fast, close-winded, seaworthy and seakindly bluewater yacht, with the ability to keep going in the very worst weather. This excellent example was purchased by her current owner as an incomplete refit. She has now been fully refitted and carefully maintained, and is well presented, well prepared and ready to sail away. A fantastic go-anywhere yacht with beautiful lines that attracts attention wherever she goes, the complete antithesis of the modern wide-beamed marina caravan. If you love sailing, whether ocean crossing or backwaters pottering, the Rustler 31 will get you there quickly, enjoyably and comfortably.
