Off Center Harbor's Remarks

About everyone’s favorite boat around here is VELA, fifty feet of original traditionality. We saw her being built, then cared for over the years, and she remains in first-class condition. She has had many careers of sailing in the hands of Capt. Havilah Hawkins, an outstanding seaman in his own right as well as being co-builder and an OCH Guide. Watching him handle VELA, either under sail or power, remains a favorite sight for all of us. Look her over carefully and think deeply about all the uses you might put her to. If something comes to mind, and you end up making the call for further information, you won’t be disappointed (even if you decide not to buy her).

Description from Boat's Main Listing

(This boat is currently only listed on Off Center Harbor)

VELA is a traditional gaff-headed sloop. She has spent her entire life earning her keep as a daysailer, charter boat, sail-training vessel, and family live-aboard. VELA's open interior and lack of systems reflect this career as well as her owner's philosophy. VELA is a vessel that stands out in any anchorage, receiving consistent compliments.
