The Eider is a wonderful 17′ 3″ cabin sailboat. It is a great step up in size and function from the 15′ Nancy’s China, yet is still compact and trailerable.
Her small cabin has good room to sleep two with a bit of extra space for gear to be stowed out of the way of your unrolled sleeping bags.
The self-bailing cockpit allows her to live on her mooring throughout our rainy spring and fall (and all-to-often our summers as well).
