1964 50' Kettenburg Sloop

San Pedro, California


REDUCED:  If you like to turn heads and appreciate the quality of the Kettenburg boats don't miss out on this one. She is hull #19 of 24 built and  a real beauty with her white hull and varnished house.

The owners purchased the vessel in 1999 to live aboard and regrettably now find it necessary to move ashore.  The owners converted  the mid ship stateroom to an office. It can be returned to a stateroom with double bunks with some minor construction.

 Aug. 2010 survey available.
