PRELIMINARY LISTING

SWEETPEA is a very special boat and the type that rarely comes available.   From her Rhodes inspired sheer to her Pacific Seacraft style bulwarks and external chain plates the owners have taken the best design elements from the era and tastefully incorporated them into the venerable C&C Invader hull form.  Money was no object during this multi year refit and even a cursory view of this advertisement will make any knowledgeable sailor weak in the knees.  If you are on the hunt for an absolutely gorgeous, turn key, cruising yacht SWEETPEA is your boat.   Highly Recommend.

Historical Note:

SWEET PEA's original owner was a WWII P-38 Lightning pilot who flew a plane of the same name in combat over Germany.  She has gone through an extensive refit (more than 80% of her has been replaced or refurbished) which effectively makes her a much younger boat.  Her actual build year was 1967 but very little of her 60's era parts remain.  The INVADER's hull is solid fiberglass which according to the coast guard gives her a projected usable lifespan of 1,000 years.  She has been improved in every way and can be yours for less than the cost of a re-power.
