KARUNA for sale


1968 Kato Sealark Ketch. Currently lying north shore Lake Pontchetrain, LA. 40ft LOD, 46′ LOA. 6′  2″ design draft. Mahagony on Iroko frames. Copper fastened. Monel keelbolts. Cast iron ballast. Standing rigging: Dyform wire with Sta-lok fittings. Lighthouse windlass. Perkins 4-108 -low hours on rebuild. 1992-1999 refit: Side and foredecks reglassed with biaxial in epoxy. Total Afterdeck rebuild. Replaced After bulkhead. Replaced transom planking. All new systems/rigging. New port fuel tank. New mainsail. 2002-present: wedge seamed hull. Glassed hull from keel to top of bootstrip with biaxial in epoxy. Rebuilt engine. New transmission. New stbd fuel tank and complete fuel system. New custom Bimini top and frame. New custom davits. New foresails. New Harken furlers. I live 6 hours from Karuna and was unable to visit during COVID. Last summer, the caretaker noticed insect activity. Termites have caused damage to the freezerhold, adjacent afterdeck and aft bulkhead as well as a small portion of the stbd sidedeck.  She's in better shape than when purchased 30 years ago. If I lived locally, I would not hesitate to take on this work but when combined with the distance, it is not workable for me. $10,000.
