The authentic charm of this beautifully maintained, wooden vessel provides a classic sailing experience on deck, enhanced by Old World comfort in the cabin below. Complete with kerosene lanterns, wood stove and vintage styling, Champion offers an enchanting escape for those seeking an intimate adventure.
