2006 Custom built double ender ready for world cruising with 2010 electrical and rigging, solar, autopilot and more! Balance is a George Buehler designed Otter 50. She was built by Dunn Boatworks in Indiana between 2002 and 2006. Her interior was completed in 2009 in Deltaville, VA, also by Michael Dunn of Dunn Boatworks. The interior cabinets, bulkheads, and trim all wood for that matter is either 3/4″ solid oak, or 1 1/4″ solid walnut. There is no plywood or veneer in the boat at all. The hull is 3/16" American mild steel with " on keel sides, and 1" at the keel shoe. The hull is exceptionally heavy duty and beautifully welded and crafted. There is no fairing compound on the topsides and the welds are perfectly smooth. The single hard chine is just below the water line, giving her hull a smooth and curvy appeal. This is by far one of the best built steel boats I have ever seen. The interior of the hull is uninsulated and sprayed with three coats of Devoe epoxy and shows next to no rust only a few tiny spots that rub right off. The owner's take great care to keep her dry and well ventilated. The electrical system is completely balanced and the large solar array provides more than enough charging capacity for the huge battery bank. Because of these excellent systems, LED lights, and new 12 volt equipment, sunlight provides all the power you can use. Mr. Dunn built this boat for himself and his wife after a long career of building wooden and steel work boats on the Great Lakes. Unfortunately, he fell ill toward her completion and was forced to leave the boat on the hard in Deltaville, VA for over a year. The current owners purchased the boat in 2010 and immediately went to work installing a state of the art 12 volt system, and rigging her with all new Harken, Schaeffer and New England Ropes parts. In the process, they sailedBalance from Deltaville, VA to Key West, back up the coast to Annapolis, MD, and from there back down to Ft. Lauderdale, through the Bahamas, and back to Miami. Balance is a very good boat whose life is just beginning. She was well designed, exceptionally well built, competently outfitted and very lightly used. She has many decades of life, travel and adventure through which to carry her next owners safely, quickly and in style. Balance is a true head-turner. She sails exceptionally well for such a heavy boat; easily cruising at 6 to 7 kts SOG in 12 knots of true breeze. Additional Specs, Equipment and Information: Boat Name
