What an incredible opportunity for those seeking to create their own maritime adventures.
"Iron Mistress" is a very rare, one owner vessel, built specifically for her experienced owners, who have lavished love and attention on her since completing her build in 1988. She is regularly, but lightly used, having completed multiple short handed voyages around the US Eastern seaboard, and having completed an epic five year global circumnavigation.
In keeping with the owners desire for a 'fit for purpose' vessel, "Iron Mistress" is a comprehensively equipped, and regularly maintained vessel, as can be seen by the Inventory and images in this presentation. However, it is important to mention that only a personal inspection will fully reveal the high level of passion and effort that has always gone into presenting her as a truly special vessel.
Strength, durability, beauty and safety, easily sailed shorthanded. That was her one owner's brief. And equally at home on weekend oiutings, or on a global circumnavigation.
Her stylish layout is designed to accomodate a couple with occasional guests. She has four usable sea berths with lee cloths in the main cabin and a double aft quarter berth to port. Thus, she can safely and comfortably sail with 2-4 crew on passages.
She is rigged to handle the most extremen sailing conditions with confidence, utilizing a cutter rig with a mast-mounted spinnaker pole on a track. All standing rigging is oversized and she features a Harken Batcar system with lazy jacks and a Doyle stack pack for the mainsail.

"Iron Mistress" has the traditional feel of Maine solid wood joinery with painted bulkheads in the traditional Herreshoff fashion. She has Corian countertops in the galley with gleaming stainless steel ports. The bright white headliner is Formica with solid ash wood molding complimented by stainless steel lighting throughout as well as an oil lamp for ambiance. To help keep air moving, there are 7 Hella turbo fans throughout the interior as well. Immediately to port, is a double quarter berth with lee cloth. Next, you come to the galley on the port side. It is a secure offshore galley, beautifully finished with solid Corian surface countertops, where the cook won't have a problem being secure in a seaway or at anchor. There is tons of counterspace and a large molded Corian sink into the counter for easy cleanup and a clean look, four burner Broadwater propane stove with oven, a Seafrost holding plate refrigeration system with a huge separate freezer. It can be run off 110 or engine driven while underway. It is new as of 2021. You will always be able to make ice as well as keep ice cream frozen for 72 hours even with the system turned off.
The navigation station is to starboard, across from the galley. The nav station is a bench style with Ultraleather covering the foam cushions throughout the whole boat. The nav station is well equipped for cruising with all the communication and navigation equipment within reach. Just before the navigation station on the starboard side, there is a large wet locker and a large deep pantry. All lockers have caning in the doors for ventilation. Before the galley on the port side, directly across from the pantry is the enclosed engine box amidships. It provides copious amounts of extra counter space and can be dismantled very easily for complete engine access. In fact, once it is removed, the motor can be removed by one person using the 12,000 lb pad eye above the motor with a line to the primary winch for lifting.
