SARACEN

Scanned Image 17

SARACEN is a Dutch Lemsteraak (shallow draft, gaff-rigged, leeboard sloop), a vessel not often seen on this side of the Atlantic but hugely popular in the Netherlands where they were once work horses of the coastal economy transporting goods and people and are now cruised and raced as coveted classics.

With sturdy steel construction, shallow draft, simple sail plan and exceptional stability SARACEN would make an excellent cruising boat for the US East Coast, Intracoastal waterway, Florida Keys, Bahamas and beyond or when the right spot is found as a permanent live-aboard vessel with loads of character.

SARACEN has not been in the water for several years and as such there will certainly be some work needed to bring her back into Bristol condition. That being said SARACEN is being offered for purchase at an asking price that is extremely fair for the amount of existing value to be found in this boat.
