50' Stevens Custom 50


?Some day, we?re going to go cruising!?

If that sounds like you, your ?some day? can be now with Akka, a classic 50? live-aboard, ocean-going dream. With her signature Sparkman & Stephens hull design, easily handled cutter rig, and a custom hard dodger and bimini to protect the aft cockpit, she is a joy to sail offshore and a beautiful sight in the harbor.

Got kids? Now?s the time to give them the adventure of a lifetime. Akka?s three cabin interior features a spacious forepeak berth for mom and dad, a double bunk cabin and quarter berth for kids and/or crew. Two full heads give privacy and comfort.

Summer is coming!

You can begin living your dream this summer with Akka! She is sturdy and built to last. She?s been well-maintained by her owners, and comes fully equipped for both live-aboard comfort and sailing/cruising pleasure.
