Sparkman and Stephens Racer for Sale


KKMI, a major yard in the San Francisco Bay Area is holding a lien sale for Paladin. She is a 45 foot S&S designed, cold molded racing boat.  I saw her several months ago and she looked to be in pretty good condition from a distance. Minimum bid is $25000, which does not seem bad for such a boat. Check this link for more information.
