GALADRIEL is a late model example of this popular centerboard, mid-cockpit design. Formerly BOOMERANG, DOLCE and FLEET. She was purchased by her current owners in late 2011; a major refit was commenced in early 2012 and completed later that year. During this refit virtually every system, pump, motor and hose was removed from the boat and rebuilt or mostly replaced.
The front of the engine room was cut away and the engine and generator were pulled and sent away to the dealer for rebuilds (new countertops were installed after the engine and generator were replaced). The transmission was done a year later. Prior to re-installation of the rebuilt systems, the entire bilge and engine room was pressure washed and repainted.
Approximately 80% of the boat was rewired at this time. The vessel has been continuously upgraded since then.
GALADRIEL is a beautiful, very competent offshore vessel. She is a very special yacht and must be considered by the discerning sailor looking for an elevated level of quality, finishing and all-around sailing pleasure.United Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Wellington Yacht Partners. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel

Descending the companionway steps you\nenter the salon. The four steps are handcrafted of solid teak, curved for\nsafety in a seaway with non-skid in the varnish. There is a large round table\nslightly to port and a removable settee table to starboard. Both tables have\ncustom covers to protect the finish while not on board or during ocean\npassages.
To starboard is a 6’-6” bench seat that\neasily pulls out for a comfortable sea berth with a lee cloth. The rounded\nseating at the main table to port accommodates six for dining or entertaining.\nThe tables are solid teak, again shaped by hand, and feature a smart yet subtle\nstarburst pattern expanding from the center to the slightly fiddled edges. The\ndining table has several drawers and a uniquely-engineered Frigoboat wine\nlocker at the bottom with room for a dozen of your favorite bottles. Under the\naft area of the settee to port is another customized drawer into which your\nbest china fits snugly. This drawer is also engineered to secure the items from\nbreakage. Behind the port seating is a\nflat screen TV monitor, which hides in a cabinet and rises into view via an\nelectric motor. The Sea Recovery watermaker, recently upgraded to 860 gallons\nper day, is located under the forward area of the port settee.
Forward in the salon, on both port and\nstarboard, are teak cabinets with beveled glass doors. The port cabinet has a\nstarburst deck prism in the ceiling, which illuminates the crystal wine glasses\nand champagne flutes that can be housed in the cabinet. Beneath this cabinet is\nthe entertainment locker with the AV system. A drawer beneath can be used for\nadditional CDs and DVDs. There are individual volume controls for the sound\nsystem in the salon, the three cabins, and the cockpit. There are two solid\nteak handrails in the salon ceiling.
The companionway entry has three\nseparate sliders: a main cover of heavy\nsafety glass framed in solid teak, a teak-framed screen cover and a canvas\ncover with teak framing. A rare and nice\ntouch in the salon is the curved teak panel covering the keel-stepped mast and\nTambour drop-down shades for all fixed hull ports. Excellent ventilation and\nnatural light come from nine overhead hatches, all with integrated sliding\nscreens, twelve opening port lights with removable screens, three deck prisms,\nseven fixed hull ports and six stainless steel dorades in solid teak deck\nboxes. The hull ports can be covered for privacy with custom teak sliders\nincorporated into the teak hull panels.
There is central air conditioning with\nreverse-cycle heating independently controlled in all three cabins and the\nsalon. Additionally, there are seven 12V fans and an independent Espar heating\nsystem.
Forward Living Area
Moving towards the forward cabin is a\nprivate head with a solid teak sliding door. This head is to starboard and has\na green marble counter top, a manual marine toilet, wash-basin, medicine\ncabinet, a cedar-lined linen locker and three other lockers, providing plenty\nof storage for the yacht’s towels, linens and supplies. The head also features\na separate teak-trimmed shower stall with a solid teak floor grate, an\nautomatic sump pump and a hanging wet locker. There is an overhead hatch with a\nbuilt-in screen and a 12V blower for additional ventilation.
Opposite the head, on the port side, is\nthe crew/guest/kids cabin with another solid teak sliding door. This cabin\nfeatures two single bunks, a red cedar-lined hanging locker, a bureau with a\ngreen marble desktop and several lockers above and below the berths. Each berth\nhas a lee cloth and the upper bunk has a solid teak handrail above it to assist\nin getting in and out of bed. Each bunk has a reading light and a 12V fan.\nThere is an opening overhead hatch and a port light, both with removable\nscreens.
Above the hanging locker are two other\nlockers; the smaller one with a sliding Tambour teak door can hide a TV, which\nis wired to the main entertainment center in the main salon. Moving all the way\nforward is the guest cabin with a very large queen berth, two cedar-lined\nhanging lockers and several other lockers, drawers, cabinets and shelves.\nStorage abounds here and there is plenty of room for your guests’ personal\neffects, extra crew rations (for extended voyages) and the yacht’s spares and\nsupplies.
The galley is located to starboard and\nslightly aft of the main companionway and is a small step down, ensuring\nexcellent headroom throughout. It is a secure place for the cook, configured in\na U-shape with two deep stainless steel sinks near the centerline of the yacht,\nwith counter space on both sides and storage underneath and above to the left.\nThe galley counters are Corian. Moving in a counter-clockwise direction aft is\nthe huge refrigerator with top and side doors, wire storage shelves and a\ndedicated drinks locker. There are four lockers and a large shelf above this\narea for food, condiments, books and other items. Two huge food lockers are\nlocated in the starboard aft corner of the galley and moving a little forward,\nbehind the stove, are more food lockers.
The propane stove is a 4-burner Force 10,\nnew 2018, with two high BTU burner elements with an oven and broiler. There is\na microwave oven above the stove and a pots and pans locker below it. Next\nforward is more counter space with a series of drawers below and a dedicated\ntrash locker next to that. Above this counter space is an appliance locker with\nspace for a toaster, coffee grinder and coffee maker, all of which can be\nattached to a sliding teak shelf that can be fixed in either the open or closed\nposition, so it may be out of sight while not in use. Above this locker is another\nlarge locker for holding your everyday bowls, dishes and glassware.
There is a 12V blower, a 12V fan and\nopening port light providing superb ventilation in the galley.
Moving aft from the navigation station\nis a companionway with a deep freezer with top and side doors. There is a bar\nwith a Corian counter and lockers above, with room for bottles and glassware.\nThe ice machine is located to the right of the deep freeze. Both the deep\nfreeze and the refrigerator can be cooled by either the main engine, the\ngenerator or by 110V shore-power. Opposite the bar (above and aft of the engine\nroom) is a huge tool locker with three shelves for all your tools and more\nspares.
Next aft is GALADRIEL’s owner’s cabin\nwith a palatial queen centerline berth – rarely seen in Little Harbors. The bed\nhas a custom mattress and separate lee cloths for comfort in a seaway. There\nare seats on each side of the bed and tons of locker space, shelving and\ndrawers. There is also an additional B&G Hydra 2000 repeater for the owner\nto monitor. There are two 12V fans, two overhead hatches with built-in screens\nand privacy shields, and two opening port lights, with screens, and two dorades.
The private en-suite head is on the\nstarboard forward side of the aft cabin. It also has countertops of marble and\nfeatures a rather large vanity with medicine cabinet, plenty of storage and a\nseparate shower stall with a thermostatic shower valve (so the water is just\nthe right temperature) and an outboard locker hiding the washer/dryer. There is\nalso an opening hatch and port light with screens and a 12V blower to help\nmoisture escape.
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe solid teak cabin sole throughout the yacht is\nbuilt of separate removable floorboards for access to tank tops, sea-cocks,\nmachinery and Racor filters. Each section of floor is locked in place with\nflush-mounted swivel handles. Construction is of solid 3/8” alternating teak\nand holly, laid over a lighter weight core material. A combination safe is\nhidden in a locker for your valuables while in port.
Navigation: The navigation station is located on the port\nside of the main companionway and aft of the main salon settee. There are two\nlockers under the navigator’s seat; one for safety gear, tools, spares and\nmiscellaneous equipment and the other for spare engine oil. The table is\nhandcrafted solid teak with a custom inlay around the perimeter. More storage\nlockers and a shelf are to the navigator’s right with more shelving above the navigation\npanel.
GALADRIEL’s cockpit design, deck layout\nand sail handling equipment allow the yacht to be easily operated by the\nhelmsman alone without recruiting onboard guests. The cockpit is large and\nfunctional, designed for easy exit each side without climbing over coaming. A\ncustom-designed steering pedestal houses all engine instrumentation. New\nB&G Hydra 2000 sailing instruments are displayed above the companionway\nproviding essential information for the helmsman and are readable from anywhere\nin the cockpit. A Ritchie 6\" compass is installed on the steering pedestal\nand features a removable stainless steel cover.
Primary winches, mainsheet and mainsail\nouthaul are 2-speed electric, all within easy reach of the helm. Line clutches allow\nthe furler and other working lines to be operated with an electric winch. The\nHood Sto’way in-mast mainsail is also electric. By attaching the removable\ncutter stay, she becomes a serious offshore voyager capable of virtually any\nsea. The dodger is very sturdy and can be a useful handhold in heavy seas. The\nnew bimini, covering the whole cockpit, provides rain and sun protection. It is\ndesigned to be in place while sailing and has withstood 50-knot gusts. Both the\ndodger and the bimini can be folded down and stowed neatly out of the way. The solid teak cockpit table can dine four as\nis, or with the extension in place, six. There is a stainless steel tube under\nthe table for a good foothold and a cooler locker inside the table. The\nsteering pedestal has the engine instruments and controls, a helm-operated\nremote for the windlass, a high-water bilge alarm, controls for the new bow\nthruster, controls for the cockpit, deck and navigation, lights, and the\ncontrol for fire suppression.
The cockpit seats are long enough for\nyour tallest guests to stretch out and custom made closed-cell foam cushions\nline all the seats and seatbacks, including a riser for the helmsperson. All cushions are attached (but removable) so\nthey won’t be lost while sailing. All control lines neatly stow in the teak-framed\ncockpit coming. There are also small storage lockers aft of the helm for quick\naccess to blocks, spare line and other items.
The large format Ultra Bright Sunlight\nViewable E125 multifunction color display is mounted in the cockpit along with\na full complement of B&G Hydra 2000 sailing instruments, autopilot main\ncontrol head with a wireless autopilot remote control unit and a removable\ncockpit-mounted VHF ICOM III Command Microphone. Unique to GALADRIEL, the aft\ndeck area has two swiveling “fighting” chairs for deep sea fishing, sunning,\nand reading. It is also a popular area at cocktail time or for manning propane\nBBQ. There is a spotlight mounted on the port antenna mast that can be used to\nilluminate the aft deck, and a removable teak table can be set between the\nchairs. There are two deck chocks for fishing rods and a folding stainless\nsteel and teak swim ladder off the transom.
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAbundant deck storage with a very large forward sail\nlocker, two aft lazarettes and one aft locker. An outboard engine can be easily\nlifted to and from a dinghy with the custom stainless steel arm on the\nstarboard aft deck.
The deck is one-piece molded FRP covered\nwith laid teak and Divinycell H-80 foam core. In areas where deck equipment is\ninstalled, core is replaced with Divinycell H-200 high-density foam. Cockpit\nsides are solid fiberglass with solid teak handrails, cockpit combings and\nbackrests in a high gloss varnish. Deck flange is solid glass, approximately\n3/8” thickness. The deck is bonded and bolted down with epoxy putty to the\ninboard angled hull flange with 5/16” bolts on 8\" centers. Additional\nfastenings are provided by the solid teak toe rail thru-bolted on 8\"\ncenters. All deck hatch landings are molded in FRP. There are two flush\nlazarette hatches with molded drain channels. Propane and outboard motor gas\netc. are in separate lazarettes and ventilated directly overboard.
The hand-laid teak decks, deckhouse and\ncockpit sole have been fully refurbished by Hinckley in 2010 with a current\nthickness of ½”. A solid teak toe rail is flared and tapered to match the hull\nand fitted to mooring line chocks. The solid teak dorade boxes have dovetail\njoints and stainless steel cowls which can be removed for ocean passages. There\nare teak drip railings along the cabin sides which wrap around the front and\nback of the deckhouse. All exterior teak has a minimum of six coats of professionally\napplied high-gloss varnish. Stainless steel pulpit with port and starboard\nrunning lights, stainless steel stern pulpit with boarding gate and stern\nlight, 30\" stainless steel stanchions and double lifelines with side\ngates, stainless steel stem head fitting with twin anchor rollers and\nwell-rounded built in mooring line fairleads installed flush with the toe rail,\nstainless steel stern and spring line chocks flush with toe rail, stainless\nsteel chain plates, stainless steel non-fouling guard rails over dorade boxes,\nleather-wrapped stainless steel steering wheel, and stainless steel genoa\ntracks inboard and outboard with reference numbers stamped on top.
There are four mid-ship cleats, two each\non port and two each on starboard along with two cleats on the bow and two\nstern cleats.
Topsides are Mauritius Dark Blue Awlgrip\npainted 2015, along with a white double boot stripe and gold cove. The coach\nhouse was also painted in Awlgrip Stark White in 2015 and non-skid was painted\na Whisper Grey. Exterior bright work is always kept in top condition.
The hull is molded in FRP from female\nmolds with 3/4\" Airex foam core for added strength, sound and thermal\ninsulation. Vinylester resin is used on the exterior skins for high resistance\nto water osmosis and very low post-curing shrinkage for a superior long-lasting\nfinish.
Bottom is coated with epoxy Interlux\n2000 system. The Airex core material is eliminated in the sheer line,\ncenterline, ballast, rudderpost, hull ports and thru-hulls. Solid FRP is\nlaid-up in these areas. There is a teak rub-rail with stainless steel striker.\nBulkheads are built of marine grade plywood, reinforced with FRP in areas of\nchain-plates. All structural bulkheads bonded to the hull and deck with FRP and\nAirex foam spacers.
Floor beams are extruded FRP (as\ndifferentiated from the wood beams used in the Little Harbor 53s), interlocked\nand bonded to hull for rigid and durable support of the cabin sole. FRP fuel\nand water tanks are integral to the hull for additional stiffness and to use\nthe maximum amount of volume available. All tanks are below the floorboards and\nare fully baffled with ample inspection ports. The water tanks are coated with\nclear gelcoat. Chain-plates are 316 stainless flat bar weldments thru-bolted to\nreinforced FRP attached to hull. Stainless steel mast step, ¼” thickness with\nlimber holes and provision for 3\" fore and aft adjustment. FRP engine bed\nwith steel reinforcement bonded directly to hull.
The centerboard was rebuilt in 2013. A\nnew Amsteel pennant was attached in 2013. The centerboard is two-part female-molded\nFRP with bronze protective shoe on leading edge and FRP around pin area. The\ncenterboard has a highly efficient foil shape and is filled with structural\nputty and lead ballast to provide negative buoyancy. The centerboard is hoisted\nvia Amsteel cable to a dedicated winch. The centerboard trunk is molded FRP. Centerboard\nconfiguration offers a minimum of 6’ with board up and a maximum draft of 12’\nwith board down. The hoist winch is located at the forward end of the cockpit\nand is operated manually with a winch handle.
The Hood electric Stoway mast and boom\nare painted aluminum extrusions by Hood Yacht Systems. Sail inventory consists\nof the furling main, furling genoa, staysail, and storm staysail. The sails are\nroutinely serviced by North Sails and new in 2013.
The double spreader spar is keel-stepped\nand standing rigging and turnbuckles are stainless steel rod. Standing rod\nrigging was replaced in 2012. Sail and rig controls include a Harken headsail\nfurling system, new 2012 and rebuilt 2018, Hood Stoway electric mainsail\nfurling system, which was rebuilt in 2012, and Navtec hydraulic boom vang, rebuilt\nin 2017, and backstay adjuster rebuilt in 2017.
All the running rigging was updated 2017\nand is led aft to the cockpit - not through, but around the dodger - maintaining\nits water tight seal. GALADRIEL comes with full spinnaker gear including a pole\non a mast track, secondary winches and running rigging to fly an asymmetrical\nor symmetrical chute. The cutter stay is fastened in place with an oversized\npelican hook. When not needed, the\ncutter stay stows neatly away on a dedicated padeye on the port side deck.\nTacking and gybing are a breeze as GALADRIEL is a true sloop that can be\nconverted to a cutter only as needed when going to weather in the heaviest\nwinds. The entire rig was inspected in 2018.
The insulated engine room is under the\ncockpit and accessed through two doors opposite the nav station, a door under\nthe companionway steps, a locker under the galley sink, a locker in the aft\ncabin and a port in the aft head. The mechanical equipment is a tight fit, but\nall sides are accessible. The main engine is a 100 HP Westerbeke, rebuilt 2012,\nand the generator is a Westerbeke 8kW (rebuilt, 2012) with separate sound\nshield. The engine space is well insulated and well ventilated, with a 12V\nblower providing fresh air and exhausting hot air. Fire suppression is\ncontrolled from the helm and there are inspection windows in the port side\ndoors. There are separate battery selector switches for the windlass, power\nwinches, generator, main engine and main house supply and bow thruster. Above\nthe engine doors are the extensive 12V and 110V electrical panels, properly\nlabeled for quick reference and control. Also located here are the controls for the\nEberspacher 8D heater.
The Arcturus 10 HP twin prop bow\nthruster was installed 2009. The bow thruster is powered by a separate pair of\nAGM lifeline batteries (new 2013). Batteries charged with dedicated 24V charger.
GALADRIEL is a late model example of\nthis popular centerboard, mid-cockpit design. Her seakindly, low-wetted surface\nhull design is easily driven by a high aspect sail plan that generates\nsurprisingly good light air performance. She features a three-cabin layout with\nan enviable centerline queen bed in the aft master cabin, a large queen bed in\nthe forward guest cabin and comfortable bunks in the second guest cabin.
GALADRIEL has always been maintained by\nthe Little Harbor yard or by expert service personnel duly authorized by the\nsystems manufacturers. In 2012, GALADRIEL underwent a complete re-fit of\nsystems, electronics and cosmetics with the current owner. This was an\nextensive refit and made this beautiful yacht new again. A new bow thruster was\ninstalled, the Espar heater was refurbished, her engine drive refrigeration\ncondensing unit replaced and her teak decks totally refastened, re-bunged, all\ncaulking removed, re-caulked and sanded yielding a ½” refurbished deck for years\nof additional service.
