A fun, cruiser racer in its day, this is hull #36 of only 40 built between 1979 and 1981. Not many of these boats around and very rarely do they come on the market.
FELICITY has been well cared for by the current owner of 17 years. Most maintenance work has been carried out at our yard here in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, and in recent years includes re-powering with a Vetus diesel, new port lights and replacement of the mast compression strut.
This is the ideal boat for a newcomer to sailing or some one who would like to downgrade to a manageable easy boat for coastal single handed sailing. If you're into keel boat racing, the I9's also have some very favourable PHRF numbers.
FELICITY is currently on the hard but and may be viewed at our yard in Portsmouth, Rhode Island
