1948 Luders 16 Sailboat


This is 16′ on the waterline (hence Luders 16) but 26′ LOA with resultant long overhangs and a classic appearance. It is constructed of 5 layers of 1/8″ mahogany strips, crisscrossed and hot glue molded which makes for a strong light boat. Thetis has a traditional cabin as opposed to the molded cabins on most Luders 16s. The cabin and cockpit are also mahogany and the seats are rosewood, all finished with multiple coats of varnish, contributing to the beautiful classic look. Three new mahogany hatch covers are under construction. Spruce mast and boom have recently been refinished. The sails are in good condition. A Garmin GPS/depth finder provides the necessary information for safe sailing. A Minn Kota electric motor provides propulsion when the wind dies. A solar charger and three batteries support the motor. The cabin below provides sitting head room and space for storage, but not much else. The trailer and a custom made winter cover are also included. $7,500.
