I am selling my beloved Dellabrown. I am no longer at the right place in my life to own a sailboat... I hope she goes on to wonderful places.
A little history: I believe I am the third owner. The owner before me owned her for many years. He started her from Portland, Oregon and settled in Santa Barbara, where he lived aboard for several more years, eventually selling her to me when he bought a trimaran. She is well set up for cruising and live aboard life, and I have lived aboard for the past three summers (2 off the hook, 1 in ventura harbor). She needs some love to get back to her purist state of being, but as is she is a solid, trustworthy, well lined, well rigged boat, ready for action.
She is insured through May of 2014 and currently living at Ventura West Marina in Ventura Harbor.
As with most boats of this era and in this price range, she is solid and stoic, wanting for care and maintenance.

The hull is in good condition, few to no blisters (I visually inspect and clean on SCUBA once every month or two since I know the anti-fouling is towards the end of its life). the swing keel has a few rust spots, I may get to this with epoxy putty in the coming weeks.
