Overview

Major Price Change.  Fantastic Great Loop Boat!

This one of a kind Schucker 440 has been extensively cruised and customized.  She is loaded with equipment, and is set up to be self-sufficient away from the dock for long term cruising or living aboard.

Be sure to click on the video link above the main photo!

 

"Drift Wood" is exceptionally clean and well maintained.  

In 2011, her sailing rig was adapted, and the yacht was customized into a comfortable and efficient trawler, perfect for the Great Loop.   

With so many major upgrades, Drift Wood is uniquely optimized for a cruising couple desiring spacious living quarters and a compliment of well thought out systems.   Her approximate cruising range is 1,300 miles.  Drift Wood is quite possibly the perfect long range live aboard cruiser.

Her tabernacle main mast has been shortened, and her mainsail is now used as a steadying sail.  Her masts can now be lowered by just one crew member.  Ideal for the great loop. 

See the "Full Specs" section for a complete list of equipment.

Descriptions

Walk Through

Entering through the heavy sliding doors in aft cockpit gains access to the comfortably appointed pilothouse.  The cabin soles throughout the yacht are carpeted.  There is a large convertible couch to starboard, with a folding table and single lazy chair to port.  Twin pedestal mounted helm seats are found forward to both port and starboard.  There are also additional sliding access doors to port and starboard. The pilot house has an open feel with wall to wall windows.  The helm is to starboard with complete electronics and electrical controls.  Moving forward, down three steps you find a large U-shaped galley to starboard and an apposing office/navigation area to port.  A teak door separates the master stateroom area forward.  The master berth features a pullman style queen bed to starboard with copious amounts of storage below and to port.  The fore-peak of the yacht is home to a private head compartment.  The spacious head offers plenty of storage and a full size stand up shower.
