After 24 years of ownership, Shirah is for sale. The owner, now 98 years old, has ensured Shirah was hauled every year, new zincs and anti fouling, and general maintenance completed each season. she was last hauled October 2016. It is time for new owners. 
Shira is a unique yacht, 62 years old,  in amazing condition with clean, beautiful lines. She slips through the water with grace and poise. 

Sheltered in her boathouse, Shirah is ready and usable NOW! 

She is a perfect coastal cruiser, economical to run, seaworthy without too deep a draft,equipt with radar and marine chart plotter as well as paper charts. 
Shira attracts attention where ever she goes. At anchor or at the dock, you can be sure of admiration, and with further refinishing, she is a certain classic yacht show winner. She retains her original interior and fittings.
Yachts like Shirah, having been built of exceptionally high quality materials (teak, mahogany, copper, bronze) and having long term knowledgable ownership, are increasingly rare. Additionally, Shirah has unusually large aft deck, perfect for entertaining and dining. 

This is an uncommon opportunity to purchase a nice sized yacht built of very high quality (teak, mahogany, bronze) materials, with known history and which has benefited from long term ownership and regular annual maintenance.
