1979 Pearson 424 Ketch for $59,900 in Boston harbor for sale by owner.
Gaia is well maintained and a great sailboat for long distance cruising, overnight excursions with friends and family, as well as a live aboard vessel.
The cockpit is spacious (more-so than most 50 footers). Gaia's aft cabin holds plenty of storage with a sea-going berth (and lee cloth) and navigation station. There is a door for privacy and a companion way aft and midship for convenience and safety. Forward of the cabin is the galley with a gimballed 3 burner propane stove, DC refrigerator (holds ice just fine), hot and cold pressurized water, and ample counter and storage space.
Across from the galley is a spacious head with a separate shower stall.
Forward is the salon with facing settees and a large dining table, and all the way forward is the second cabin with a spacious V berth and sink with more storage lockers.
