Vessel suffered lower mast tang failure on port side (September 2018) and the rig was lost. While I have the mast pieces and all the bronze hardware, new owner will need to acquire a new mast, sails and standing rigging. 

I'm not in a position to install a new rig, therefore offering her to a good home by way of donation to the local high school varsity hockey team to support their commitment to scholar athletes. 

Since 2008 I've invested over $100K in structural repairs and progressive maintenance. The boat is tight (no leaks), and is in good cosmetic condition. Bottom and top-sides painted Fall 2018. 

April 2018 survey estimates replacement cost at $125K and market value at $65K. With an investment in a new rig and sails, and a donation to a worthy cause, a new owner can enjoy Talaria for another decade or more.
