Formosa boats are known to be heavily built. The bow sprit on this vessel has been completely rebuilt using aircraft aluminum as the primary spar built by Streich Bros. in Tacoma, WA. The decks have been re-glassed and much of the boat re-built.

It was hauled and bottom painted in April 2019. All the opening hatch windows in the boat are replacement Lewmars in 2017-2019.

Some of the interior photos show renovation in progress related to chain plate replacements, which are being completed by the current owner.

No holding tank as the toilet is a composting toilet and the original holding tank has been removed.

Waterline Boats / Boatshed did not independently verify capacities and measures, which are reported from seller-provided information and/or literature.

Broker's Comments

VIRTUAL TOUR - VIDEO - 80 TO 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL!

A commonplace piece of advice when buying an older used boat is to buy one that someone else has put all new stuff into! This Formosa 41 Ketch is one of these. The list of new or newer equipment on this boat is lengthy. Re-powered, rigging, sails, life lines, stanchions, fiberglass work, windlass, anchor chain, navigation electronics, and the list goes on. These are items that are costly when renewing a boat. A little upholstery work inside this boat and it will be good for quite a long while... and be able to take you on wonderful adventures.

She's ketch-rigged for easy sailing with one or two people.
