Galadriel has an inviting cockpit large enough for the expected crew while small enough to be well-found and safe in a seaway. She is equally comfortable day-sailing or performing off-shore work. The raised mid-deck and curved coach roof provide an extreme sense of space and 5'11" - 6"0" headroom below. Storage is maximized and impressive. The salon is well thought out with plenty of room to relax while off watch. The galley while limited as one would expect, is able to meet the needs of a crew or a weekend sail with friends aboard. 4 berths with a double V berth forward and a quarter berth aft plus large starboard settee. Enclosed head with new porta-potti. Headroom of 5'11" to 6'0". Sit down navigation station with chart table featuring internal chart storage. Love seat style sette on port.

The compact galley has lot's of storage and adequate counter space for food preparation whether on a crossing or a weekend outing. Single deep stainless steel galley sink

This well-found aft cockpit full keel sloop incorporates a slight forward cut-away to increase maneuverability and provide directional stability downwind. Her outboard mounted rudder(New 2004)is firmly attached to the transom and full depth of the keel with pintles and gudgeons replaced in 2004. She received new awl-grip on hull, deck and cabin in 2004 and the non-skid surfaces are in excellent condition. Galadriel has been well maintained by loving owners. The Yanmar 1GM was rebuilt in 2004 and has very few hours since then. Hand layed fiberglass hull. Balsa core fiberglass deck with solid core at attachment points.
