With two private double cabins with ensuite heads with showers on opposing ends of the boat, Redwings offers unparalleled privacy, space and comfort in this price range for two couples. With an additional four berths available amidships Redwings can also accommodate a larger group with relative ease.

The galley is to port and the nav station is to starboard; forward, is a port side settee and dining area which converts into a double berth with a single berth opposite. The enclosed head is forward to port with hanging lockers to starboard. The V berth cabin and anchor locker are in the bow.  The forward head is privately accessible from this cabin.  The aft cabin has a portside enclosed head (both toilets are Raritan® marine toilets-new in 2009), double berth and large lockers and cabinets. The aft cabin connects to the main cabin through a starboard side passageway which has a pilot berth outboard to starboard and is accessible through a second entryway from the cockpit.  The interior is finished with a considerable amount of teak. The overhead is finished with a painted veneer. The cabin soles are teak and holly. Linens and towels are included.

U-shaped counter with double sink and large storage areas; Taylor® 3-burner stove with oven, gimbaled, safety rail and strap, hot and cold pressure water, 12 volt air-cooled refrigeration (new in 2012). Salt water foot pump. Lots of storage.
Fiberglass cockpit with teak overlay, completely rebuilt and refinished in 2007 and two 1-3/4" scuppers to bronze valves. Large dodger and cockpit awning.  Great visibility from the wheel even with the awning up! Edson® steering with chain to wire to quadrant (hydraulic autopilot acts as backup steering system).  Separate entryway hatches to forward and aft cabins.
12 volt battery system with 8 Trojan® 6 volt batteries provides a huge capacity which was designed for offshore cruising. Excessive power consumption is therefore not a worry for the coastal cruiser and it will not be necessary under normal circumstances to run the engine to charge the batteries while in port. Redwings has 12 volt lighting in cabin and engine room, 12 volt 3700 gph automatic bilge pump, deck lights, spreader lights, solar panels, second Rule 800® pump and Heart Interface Link® 20 battery monitoring system. With a Statpower® inverter, 120 volt power is also available throughout the boat so you can keep your computers and cell phones charged.

Hull & Deck
Claret (dark red) topsides with a molded gold boot stripe and gold waterline stripe, black bottom coat, cabin is white with gray top.  Brightwork in very good condition.  Raised toe rails with teak caps (rebuilt in 2011), double bow and stern rails with double lifelines and teak handrails in cabin top.  Brand new fiberglass deck laid and painted (grey nonskid) in 2005. All stanchion bases replaced at this time to ensure lifeline integrity and safety. New stainless steel bow pulpit 2011.
Fiberglass keel, fully protected with molded skeg with bronze heel fitting and gudgeon/pintle, internal bronze rudder gland.  The keel, rudder and skeg design have proven to be very "lobster pot friendly" and the boat has never caught a lobster pot while moving forward through the water.
