2002 Center Harbor 31 Spirit of Tradition Sloop

Between 1995 and 2002 Brooklin Boat Yard built seven Center Harbor 31s. MYSTERY (ex: ASTRID) was built and launched in 2002 and so is one of the most recent versions of these Joel White designed Spirit of Tradition-style sloops that combine classic yacht styling with modern performance sailing.

Under her first two owners MYSTERY was used primarily as a day sailing boat with a bit of racing thrown in for fun. In the off-seasons during this time of ownership MYSTERY was cared for by some of the best boat yards in Downeast Maine with orders to “make her like new” for each upcoming spring

Already in extremely good condition when purchased by the current owner, MYSTERY has (under current ownership) seen considerable updating and upgrading of systems and equipment with an eye towards maximizing sailing performance. These efforts have paid off as MYSTERY has gathered quite a bit of racing silverware in the last few years.
MYSTERY is in near-new condition, optimized for the best in sailing performance and just a drop-dead gorgeous classic yacht.

The photos shown in the listing at this time are from MYSTERY’s earlier days when she was stilled named ASTRID. Having just come onto the brokerage market we are waiting for recent photos to show off her current excellent condition, new sails, equipment and custom features and will post these as soon as they become available.
