Update!  The Pilgrim 40 is priced to be sold!  She has just received another $5,000 reduction in price!  The owner wants this boat sold before spring!

Below are some highlights from the owner:

"Hi Chris,
I just wanted you to have a list of points why I loved living and cruising on Wanderer - from a women's point of view:

The living area is all on one level - the best part of a live-aboard.
The trolley car windows give a great view of outside even while sitting.
The Veranda is like having an extra, sunny room in the boat.
The overhead table drops down on the round cocktail tables to have dinner on.
I could fit 8 people comfortably and have had 14 for dinner there.
One can set the table ahead of time for dinner and have cocktails in the main salon.
The round cocktail tables are adjustable.
The pull-out couch in the salon is a queen size bed as is the stateroom bed so regular queen-size sheets fit both.
The Salon table folds out to seat 4 people.
The refrigerator and freezer work off the generator or can plug into electricity at a dock. They are both generous in size and easily accessable.
The microwave is installed under the cabinet so it frees up the counter space.
The propane stove and oven also have a generous capacity and have a safety switch at the main panel. An extra propane tank is stored in the chimney on the top deck.
All appliances are stainless steel.
The garbage is installed in a pull-out cabinet convenient to the galley but also convenient from inside the bathroom.
The shower is an ample size with glass doors that slide easily to close.
All the beautiful woodwork inside and out are done by talented Ted Gossard workmen.
Ample closet space is in the stateroom. Since we lived on the boat 7 months of the year I was able to store all season clothes easily.
The sink and large mirror in the stateroom are handy.
The queen sized bed is not against the wall and I could easily get around it to change the sheets.
The pass-through from the stateroom to the galley was easy for Jim to pass me my morning coffee.
The hatch and porthole windows gave the stateroom plenty of air when needed.

Wanderer is a GREAT live aboard and perfect for the ICW with its shallow draft. We both loved the cruising life and hope that we can find a buyer that will love her as much as we did."
