'ZIA' is a 1987 hunter legend 35' sloop rigged sailboat. She is fully equipped to cruise the great lakes in total safety and comfort. The 2 cabin layout provides a large double berth with overhead glass hatch, ample storage shelves, lockers and a privacy door. The aft cabin has a double berth with large wardrobe, 2 opening ports and a privacy door. A spacious main salon amidships has a 2 swing up table leaves to seat up to 6 for dining and sleeps an additional crew member on the port side. A large glass opening hatch and 4 skylights let in the beautiful summer light and the 6 opening ports provide ventilation. A navigation station with seat contains all the charts and port information for the lake michigan and lake huron areas. The vhf radio, stereo, cd player, weather station, depth sounder, and electrical panel are located here also. The large galley to port has hot and cold pressure water, deep sink, refrigerator, gas range, ample counter space and is fully equipped with all the necessary pots, pans and dishes to feed a crew of 6.
The large head to starboard contains a vanity sink, mirror, storage, marine toilet and shower. A 24 hp yanmar diesel engine provides quiet and dependable power for the times with the wind does not blow your way. The roomy cockpit seats up to 7 on custom cushions. A canvas dodger and bimini top provide protection from the sun and spray. The large wheel mounted on the steering pedestal gives the captain total control along with the convenient location of the auto pilot, depth sounder, clock, engine controls, compass, and wind indicator. A swing up teak table and drink holder provide for snacks and meals in the cockpit. The roomy forward deck is perfect for lounging , sunbathing and working the sails. All sail controls lead back to the cockpit for easy and safe sail handling. If you have sailing experience on large boats and wish to charter Zia as a bareboat, we have a short experience form for you to fill out. Please call or e-mail to request one.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I grew up on Lake Charlevoix. My father taught me to sail as soon as I could swim. I worked on Mackinac Island in the summer while going to college and lived on a sailboat in the harbor. I have sailed all through the Greats Lakes in addition to the Erie Canal, East Coast, Caribbean, and South Pacific. I hold a Coast Guard 50 ton Masters(Captains) license. My son is presently serving with the coast guard in the Persian Gulf aboard a 110' cutter.

Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix:
The best way to enjoy the Great Lakes and northern Michigan is by boat. Especially a sailboat ,with the only noise being the wind and the waves.

The Unique Benefits at this Boat:
While everyone is sitting in traffic you are sailing over cool clear water with no one honking at you. On the water not only do we not yell or honk at other boats, we wave and smile. Truly a different world.
