45' Sparkman & Stephens Sloop



PALADIN is a Sparkman & Stephens design, constructed in New Zealand at the Wellington Boat Mfg. yard, with a cold molded composite construction.  In 2015 a major refit was done at the KKMI Richmond yard, upgrading the electrical systems and replacing the standing rigging.  It is a well built, fast hull sign with a voluminous interior that would serve well as a fast cruiser or a live aboard.
