“Dream” is a 1996 Bruce Roberts 44 Center Cockpit Ketch. She was built by Nimphius Boat Works in Wisconsin and has never cruised beyond Lake Michigan; consequently she has never seen salt water. She is launched every year and her current owners enjoy daysailing her with their friends as often as possible. She comes fully equipped for cruising, with several sets of sails, new batteries, an engine that runs like a Coke machine… and a tender, two chartplotters, stereo, VHF, lines, fenders, anchors, cushions, microwave, and several cases of beer. As she sits, she’s ready to go – launch next week, a good wash, and into the sunset.
Her bottom is fair and her decks are solid. She’s a big boat with a safe cockpit and plenty of room below for a crew (or a party). The current owners are downsizing and absolutely no offer will go unconsidered. She will remain on the hard in Waukegan this summer for your inspection.
