1976 Ericson 29′  $16,500

This is a Classic 70’s, well built, Bruce King designed, Ericson 29′ Sloop. She has been well
maintained, but her 13-year owners finally “needed” a bigger boat. This is a 1976 (Bi-Centennial)
version, with only 4 owners during its lifetime spent on the fresh water of Lake Superior. The boat
looks great and sails sweet and fast! She is set up with just about everything except radar, which
was dated, thus recently decommissioned in 2013, when all running rigging was replaced.  The
interior is clean and has an amazing amount of room for a 29′ vessel.

Located in Bayfield, Wisconsin (Apostle Islands), “Carina” presents an incredible cost-effective
turn-key way to begin your sailing experience on the Great Lakes. Recent up-grades, the newer
Garmin GPS chartplotter; newer Garmin multi-function instruments and newly reconditioned North
sails make this a unique opportunity. Seller is motivated and has priced “Carina” to sell at an
aggressively low price in comparison to twenty-five other Ericson 29’s on the market in the Fall of
