Greetings! It may not exactly fit under the tree, but this very nice 1994 H&H 29', known as the "Osmond (Beal) 29", will be the perfect cruising family gift. This all-composite built (no plywood) downeast boat was laid up by H&H, but built out by WesMac. So, you know it's construction is top quality. It was built by an older couple just to cruise Casco Bay, and that's where it's spent the majority of it's life.

We purchased it last winter for family cruising around the Isles of Shoals, and only put about 35 hours on her. We've become involved in a submerged cultural resource project offshore, that requires a larger boat. We've just picked up a 35' Terry Jason. That's the only reason this boat is for sale.

This is a very spacious boat inside, with an approximate 9'x5' open cockpit. The solid teak ladder to the huge rail-enclosed flybridge, has wide treads and is very solid. The exhaust rumble sounds like a vintage Chris-Craft. Very pleasing.

The boat is advertised elsewhere at $39,900, and there has been some interest. However, for a quick sale, we'll consider a lower price. She is currently on blocks at Great Bay Marine, Newington, NH. We have a survey available from last Spring. Call 603 433-3222, anytime. Thank you.
