This is a Dufour 50 with a modified interior that has a full owner's
cabin forward. Her current owner has had her for 10 years and often
single hands her on the Chesapeake Bay. The full size centerline berth
and private forward head make this a great layout and perfect liveaboard.
This 50 Ocean Alexander Trawler is a joy to operate and is very
comfortable in every way! Her autopilot and stabilizers keep her on
track so you can enjoy your trip. Her bow and stern thrusters make
close quarters handling a breeze. The beauty about this trawler is her
reliable single John Deere computerized turbo diesel engine. With
this engine she is extremely economical to operate, burning less than
1/2 gallon per mile at cruise speed. This means that at 9 mph you
burn about 4 gallons of fuel per hour. With 700 gallons of fuel you
have a safe cruising range of over a thousand miles!
This boat has done the Great Loop and the Bahamas and has spent much
of her life in fresh water. She is beautiful inside and out and is a
pleasure for two people to operate. Her 3 camera system lets you
watch the engine room directly behind you and the starboard side
facing the aft of the boat. Her two stateroom layout with two full
bathrooms makes it a joy to have guests stay with you and you can even
sleep additional guests in the bunk behind the helm and on the couch.
Cooking is no chore in her well appointed galley with a three burner
propane stove and a microwave/convection oven. Her water is well
purified at the sink and her 900 gallon per day water maker gives you
plenty of great tasting water.
A quiet running, comfortable yacht that is perfect for the family or
a retired couple who want to explore the islands or the coastal
waters. She is in superb condition and ready to cruise now.

BEAUTIFUL VERY WELL MAINTAINED AND UPGRADED VESSEL.

"Most production boats are conceived with a design brief from a
builder who has a targeted market in mind. Not so the Landing School
30 (LS-30). It’s built by students at a non-profit boatbuilding and
design college. The Landing School and its resident designer, Steve
Dalzell, design and build boats as part of the curriculum: selling
them is an afterthought. As a result, only two or three LS30s will be
built each year, which means the school may have a new problem: this
cold-molded wooden rocketship just might create more demand than the
students can supply".
The Paper Jet is designed primarily as a training boat, with the
intention that it can cater for a wide range of sailing skills. I
wanted a boat that will allow a club to race it as a class boat that
will give exciting sailing to those who have the skills but will also
allow less experienced sailors to develop their sailing skills in the
same boat at a much lower level of performance. It is not suited for
learning the most basic sailing principles single-handed. We recommend
double-handed training until the student has enough expertise to sail
single-handed. For single-handed training first learn the basics on a
Sunfish or similar boat then move to the more performance oriented
Paper Jet. The same features that I designed into it for club use
will allow a family to use one hull as the platform on which Dad can
have his excitement of blasting across large expanses of water but
junior can sail the same boat (if he can pry it loose from Dad's grip)
with a smaller rig and at slower speed. It is a boat that needs
agility and quick responses. I don't recommend it for anyone who is
slowed by arthritis or other physical problems. I did not try to
produce a design that will sail the pants off any of the other skiffs
or single-handers. It is fast and it is exciting to sail with the
Turbo rig, but from the outset (this boat was in the back of my head
for over 10 years) it was intended to provide an economical path for
sailors to progress between boats like the Optimist and the costly
single-handed skiffs without having to trade up their boat each time
to go the next step. They can build a Paper Jet at the cheapest level
or the level that they think that they can handle and progress from
there. Meanwhile, as long as Dad is not out sailing, the kids can use
the same boat at a more basic level. It makes sailing more viable for
many families. With time and skill improvements they can move into
more costly boats if they feel the need.
