Boat Description

30 Brewer Nimble 07 Equinox

This Ted Brewer designed, cutter rigged, canoe stern yawl is one of the finest examples of a pocket cruiser on the market today. She was designed for ease of sailing, visual charm and pride of ownership.

Equinox was built over a seven-year period in Southern California by someone who knows his trade and cares about both the art and science of boat building. He is a former high school shop teacher who has built a couple of dozen vessels over the past 40 years.

Equinox, while having a beautiful, traditional look as a yawl with double headsails, she was built using some of the best materials (foam-cored, bi-directional fiberglass laid up in epoxy) and she has been immaculately maintained.

She is well rigged for short-handed sailing and she deserves a new owner who will appreciate her sailing characteristics, charm and the fine quality of this beautifully maintained pocket cruiser.

Are you that person (and / or) couple?
