Moored in freshwater at the Seattle Yacht Club since new, Escargot is distinctive with her burgundy-colored hull. Designed to the IOR rule with a large foretriangle, and a big, skeg-hung rudder, she is well-behaved under sail.

Comfortably accommodates 6 people for cruising combined with strong performance to weather and off the wind make this an ideal PHRF racer and family cruising yacht.
