Enchantress is a Bill Tripp classic design, a yawl rig, hull #11, built by Werkspoor (Netherlands). She has spent her entire life in fresh water on the Great Lakes. No salt water exposure!
Three of these boats were in the top five finishers of the 1964 Chicago/Mackinac Island Race, where the wind howled and kicked up some serious competition. This two masted sailboat has had an extended rig at sometime in her past, with a much taller main and mizzen. This is great for the light wind conditions during the summer on many areas of the Great Lakes. In the spring and fall, you may have to reef or sail under shortened sail of any combination. The yawl rig gives you this option that a sloop does not have.
She has a mahogany-clad transom and teak-clad cockpit. In the main cabin is a custom mahogany folding dining table and custom woodwork everywhere you look. You would think you are aboard a beautiful wooden boat. There is a great hanging locker for cruising on an extended passage and a galley to suit all of your cooking needs.
The reliable Universal Atomic 4 is a smooth quiet choice, mated to a silicon bronze propeller. VC-17 anti fouling paint has been used on the bottom.
Come sail this classic home and have a one of a kind in any port you sail to!
