This Bruce King design is still one of the ultimate cruising boats in its class. Built by Ericson Yachts from 1970 to 1979, a total of 105 vessels of this make and model were completed by their yard. Kestrel is hull # 84.
With a hull speed of 7.6 knots this is a relatively fast vessel under sail and power. She cruises comfortably at 6 knots. Kestrel was repowered in 2019/2020 with a BRAND NEW 3 cylinder 40hp Yanmar diesel. This engine has less than 125 hours on it!
Kestrel's original owner added an additional 4,000 lbs of ballast to her keel when he commissioned her to be built. Kestrel is currently under the command of her second skipper and crew. Both owners having taken really excellent care of this vessel and it shows.
Kestrel has new cockpit cushions, a new 3-blade fixed propeller, solar panels, seafrost refrigeration, diesel heater, magma propane grill, dinghy & outboard, and lots of other cruising amenities and upgrades! More details to come as we continue to compile all of her systems and inventory.
