Launched in May 2000, this Andrew Stewart design built by R King / J W Marine has a proven offshore cruising and racing pedigree. "Ding Dong" has been optimized for short-handed offshore cruiser-racing and has won many pots along the way. 

This is a great opportunity to purchase a well equipped "ready to go" club or short-handed offshore racer for not a lot of money! Lots of fun for the buck from from this powerful, but high stability design, with a competitive 2016 IRC rating of 1.073.
