MV Content is a true passage-maker.  After six great Summers in BC, we spent the last few months hopping down the West Coast, and she is now in San Diego.  Fully-equipped for long-range coastal cruising, she is ready to go.  

She accommodates up to six.  Master suite aft, with full-size separate shower and excellent head.  Forepeak has one double, and two single berths, and separate head.
Plenty of hanging space and drawer storage.  Light and airy throughout, with more than enough opening portholes.  Superb pilot house, with the most comfortable sofa in the world.  All-round visibility, and chart-size table and stools.

Content retains most of her original features, including the original compass, built in Boston 1928.   

Enormous engine room / workshop, 7ft headroom throughout.  

Covered aft cockpit, dinner seating for six.  

We are very reluctantly exploring the market.  Built in 1930, with new Iveco 150s fitted in 2013, and meticulously maintained, she proved more than capable on the long haul down the coast this summer.  

If you are interested, please contact us at [email protected] , and we can take it from there.
