Designed by naval architect, Ted Brewer, the Whitby 42 is a solid, go-anywhere, traditionally styled center cockpit cruising ketch. With only a 5' draft, she is well-suited for ICW travel and exploring the Bahamas. She is equally well-suited for weekending or offshore voyaging.
TRADITION has had good ownership. Back in 1998 her current owners searched far and wide for the best Whitby 42 they could find, and after an extensive search up and down the East Coast, settled finally on TRADITION. They have maintained her with great pride over these past 18 years.
One significant improvement they have made is the installation in 2006 of an electrically operated Schaefer LeisureFurl roller-furling boom with fully-battened mainsail that is completely controllable from the cockpit.
TRADITION is for sale with sadness by her owners who are now advancing in years and recognize it's now time to hand her over to new owners.
