My wife wanted a boat with a bit more space so as we now own a Mac26s , our fully refurbished 1991 Bolger Martha Jane is up for sale. If you're not familiar with the design ,here's the info. 23ft x6 ft. Water ballasted. Lug rigged yawl, un stayed mast on tabernacle ( rigs in 10 minutes). Leeboards. Kick up rudder. Very lightweight. 1600lb. Trailers easily , towing weight guessed at under 3000 lbs. I towed it with a Volvo S80 easily. She's remarkably stable for a water ballasted boat. You can't beat her for shallow water sailing. Sneak up the creeks and anchor in 18 inches , away from the crowds. Good in light winds too.

I bought her after an estate sale and she was sadly neglected , though the hull was very sound. After a years work she was ready to cruise. Here's what was done. It's a long list.

New aluminum mast and yard. New boom. New sails with two sets of reef points. New leeboard. New rudder bearings. Completely repainted inside and out. All new lines. New cleats. Engine serviced ( 5hp Mercury 2 stroke ) Interior redone with new removable galley box. New ( and still unused ) porta potti. Surge brakes added to the heavy duty galvanized trailer. Trailer jacks installed. New tires. Queen size 6in memory foam mattress. ( it's like sleeping at home)

I've got over $6000 in her but I know I can't get that. Asking $4500 or best offer.

She's up for sale now , available after our September cruise.

Contact me at 484 464-1575 or

Really cool. You may want to post it on the Facebook page as well.

Good to see some activity here! Sailed out of Westport a couple weeks ago.
