Jason 35 for Sale

The second boat we're selling is Melatar, a Jason 35 designed by Ted Brewer and built by Miller Marine on Bainbridge Island. She was launched in 1980. 

Melatar is an excellent cruising/liveaboard boat, with a very roomy galley and main cabin, and abundant stowage. 

Melatar is rigged as a cutter, and balances beautifully under staysail and yankee. The inner stay is easily removable when sailing with the genoa. She also has an asymetrical spinnaker. Here's a video of Melatar under sail.

The hull and deck are heavily built from fiberglass, and insulated above the waterline. The exterior and interior are fitted out in teak. 

Melatar is well equipped for Northwest cruising with a Yanmar diesel and high-output alternator; solar panels, radar; refrigeration; Lavac head and Lectrasan treatment system; and ample tankage (100 gallons of water and 70 gallons of diesel). She traveled north to Alaska in 2016 and is ready to go again this season. 

Asking price is $35,000. Website with more details and photos
