Basic Info

Yacht Name: Wisper
Builder: Victoria
Model: 34
Year: 1987
Location: Riverside, RI
Asking Price: $69,500
Designer: C.W. Paine Design
Hull Material: Fiberglass
 

A classic Chuck Paine bluewater design, similar to the Morris Ocean Series 34 with a cut-away keel with protected propeller and strong skeg-hung rudder.

Wisper has successfully raced to Bermuda and has taken her owner and crews safely to Newfoundland on several climbing expeditions.  She’s sailed up and down the U.S. coastline and has spent much of her life in the fresh water of Lake Champlain.  She has mostly been stored indoors during the winter, but does have a cover. She’s had constant professional upgrades and looks beautiful. Her condition defies her age.
