Most of the Work Is Done!! Lots of Upgrades and Improvements!! Tune the Rigging and Sail Away!! Are you looking for a spacious liveaboard that can easily sleep 5-6 people comfortably? This 1980 Formosa Spindrift 44 is your answer. The current owner searched for over three years to find this specific make/model. Since owning it he has worked tirelessly 6 years to restore and upgrade her. Unfortunately, although much of the work is done, his health prevents him from finishing the task. She is cutter rigged with the furling forestay on the bowsprit and a staysail boom. The sail inventory includes a mainsail and roller furling jib that has not been used since they came out of the sail shop after being restitched/reconditioned. There is also a hank on staysail that appears to be in serviceable condition. Having the standing rigging checked and R&Rd by a certified rigger is still on the "To Do" list. All the running rigging is new, with the exception of a couple of lines, and the new line is on a spool below to complete those. Ground tackle includes a new Vulcan 25KG with 300' of 3/8 BB chain. There is also a 60# CQR with 20' chain and 1" rode (total rode unknown). There is a Maxwell horizontal windlass with chain gypsy and rode drum. Electric power, in addition to shore power, is provided by two (2) Solarever Photovoltaic 315W panels flowing through an Outback Flexmax controller and feeding four (4) 100Ah AGM batteries. Additionally, there are two (2) Duracell SL34 MAGM batteries and two (2) flooded lead acid batteries (motor start). Navigation and communication equipment were all replaced in March of 2021 and all connected via a NEMA 200 backbone. These include Garmin Autopilot, chartplotter, and radar. There is also a Standard Horizon 25W Matrix VHF and a Standard Horizon Eclipse GX1400 VHF. All equipment boxes and documentation are still on board. There is also a Pro Mariner ProSport 12 battery charger and a Schumacher 2000W power converter. When not under sail power is provided by a Ford Lehman 80HP diesel engine pushing a Borg Warner Velvet Drive transmission. With the 300 gal fuel the range of this vessel is significant. The engine has a new water pump, fuel pump, starter, alternator, and damper plate. The heat exchanger and oil cooler have been cleaned and serviced and there is a new fuel polishing system installed. Below the boat is very spacious. The galley has a double well stainless steel sink, a Force 10 stove/oven, and a microwave. The original refrigerator/freezer space is being currently used for storage, although the refrigeration unit is still there, and there is a stand-alone refrigerator and a stand-alone freezer. There is a Dickinson heater (diesel) and a residential window air conditioner that is easily removed. There is space to sleep 5-6, and 2 heads. Currently, the aft head is being used for storage. There is a considerable amount of storage. Outside, the bottom and the hull above the water line were painted about two years ago and are in good condition. The top deck is wide open with wires leading to turn buckles anchored to outward chainplates. The top deck appears to be in good condition with no "soft spots" noted. However, it is due for a paint job and all of the brightwork needs to be oiled.
