This boat is a bit of a mystery. We believe she is a bootleg copy of a Pilot 35. And it gets more interesting. The story goes that she was built by the Astilleros Sarmiento Shipyard of Buenos Aires, Argentina and launched in 1962. Rumor has it that a young design intern who worked in our offices at the time left with more than his experience: he left with a set of plans.
She is constructed of South American cedar (cedro) and she is built like a tank. Her deck and deckhouse are built of recycled teak which was taken during the refurbishment of an Argentinian naval vessel, the General Belgrano. I've been aboard her and she's a nice boat. She is about to go on the brokerage market for approximately $35,000. If anyone is interested in knowing more about her please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here are the plans. Keep in mind someone got creative with the design of her deckhouse.
