This ‘LIL’ yacht was designed to sail in the Johnstone Strait, B.C.,
and was shipped to it’s present location in Virginia Beach, VA
With a hand laid solid hull and deck, it has a full keel, and includes
both wheel and tiller steerage.
Thrust is provided by a self tacking jib and self tracking main, backed
up by a very reliable 11hp Yanmar Deisel engine with less than 100 hours
plus a kicker mount.
There is 5’ of freeboard with brightwork, reinforced gunwale and the
Pilot House with skylight to keep the captain and crew out of weather.
“GRUZJA” can be safely sailed in the wheelhouse or with the cockpit tiller.
For your convenience it can also find its destination by auto pilot.
There is a windlass fitting on the bow and safety equipment galore.
In the cabin is a fine wood finish, twin berth, enclosed head, kerosene heater,
air conditioner, and instrumentation.
The boat sits out of the water on a keel bunk and has a custom made
full canvass cover to keep it protected over the winter.
It is ONE of a Kind in all of North America and the only complement to
this class is the Hardy 21 in the British Isles. Most other motorsailers are in
The 30 – 50 ft. range with the accompanying selling price and restrictive
adventuring into small anchorages which Gruzja can just slip into for the night.
