"Shenandoah" is a beautiful, timeless, cutter ketch. It features the obvious Gozzard influence with the classic trailboards, bowsprit and clipper bow. With the roomy accommodations and offshore sailing pedigree, this Bayfield is worth considering for anyone looking at worldwide cruising.

Anyone looking for a well-maintained and upgraded ketch will appreciate stepping aboard Shenandoah. Sellers have created an offshore cruiser ready for the next owner to provision and leave the dock. The cockpit comes with a full enclosure with clear panels or bug screen, comfortable cushions and  full instrumentation. Sails have been reconditioned, standing rigging with Norseman's at bottom (replaced in '07) and running rigging. Live off the grid with solar panels, water-maker and 4.5 KW Northern Lights gen-set. For comfort - included is A/C, custom latex foam mattresses, on-demand hot water system and plenty of interior light & ventilation with the large butterfly hatch and numerous bronze opening ports.  Hull side trim was awl gripped green in 2012.
