She has an extensive compliment of sails in excellent condition, including a Jiffy Reefing System. Perkins 4-107 engine rebuilt in Oakland, CA. In 2013 and has only 500 hours since.

“I named my boat after my mom, the Molly O. I fell in love with her at first sight because she is strong and stout and had been beautifully cared for. (I am the second owner.) We cruised for many years in the San Juans and Gulf Islands of Washington and Canada. Six years ago I sailed her down the west coast of the U.S. and Mexico into the Sea of Cortez, where we wandered through bahias and islas. I have never doubted in her ability to keep me safe. During storms, she just puts her shoulders down and punches through. The Molly O and I have had a love affair for almost 25 years, but my wandering days are winding down due to age. You will never be disappointed in this boat.”
