1961 CONCORDIA BEETLE CAT 12'. Owner says, "12' 4" Concordia built 1961. One owner last 30 years. A beautiful wooden boat, bronze refastened, completely rebuilt centerboard box, canvas and paint in great shape, newly varnished spars. All work high quality. Cedar built with oak frames, stable and unsinkable. Beamy enough at 6' to sleep two beneath the cockpit tent. Only draws 8" with the centerboard up, so she's perfect for exploring around islands. Hop right off or even beach her or keep an anchor aboard and tow a kayak for a dinghy. Easily accommodates four adults and is great for teaching kids to sail as if the tiller is dropped, she'll head right into the wind. Great for transporting cargo. She's a lovely adventurous micro yacht and has been well cared for. Hull #875. I love my boat and I have had her 30 years. Hard to part with her, but I must. She's in extremely good condition and ready to sail. All work done on her has been professional."

"For more information on Beetle Cats check out the Talk of the Town in the August 31, 1981 issue of the New Yorker. Past Beetle Cat owners and appreciators include Jackie Kennedy, Steven Spielberg and Calvin Klein. First designed in 1921 and based on Cape Cod catboats used for fishing. Only twenty new Beetle Cats are built each year at about $17,000 brand new with sail. This is a chance to get a well loved older boat in excellent shape for a decent price." Asking $5500 ("a steal for her"). Contact Beth at beetlecat875@gmail.com. (Brooklin, ME)
