34' Huntingford True North 34 Cutter '74 "Thetis"

THETIS is from the designs of Stan Huntingford, one of the Northwest’s classic designers. She was built in Taiwan with solid fiberglass hull and teak interior. Her present owner of over 20 years is a master craftsman with professional boat building experience. He has endeavored to keep things simple as designed. Updates and repairs were professionally done as close inspection will reveal. The boat is in exceptional condition. The heavy displacement hull with good sails and  cutter rig makes her ideal for long distance cruising. A new Westerbeke diesel engine takes over in the lulls when light conditions move in. She looks traditional and is. The main difference is she is in shipshape condition and is not a hull full of projects. If you like the look of boats of tradition and aren’t looking for a project THETIS may be just what you are looking for. She has to be seen to be appreciated.
