Often referred to as a “pirate ship”, the Robert Perry designed CT 54 is as “salty” and traditional as it gets and with her low freeboard, striking sheer and graceful lines she is bound to attract attention wherever she goes. She is a true voyager, robustly built, well-mannered offshore, capable of safely taking you anywhere that stirs your heart.
In 1981, Ta Chiao made huge improvements in the layup of the deck. Previous models suffered from the “leaky teaky” decks caused by sealant failure where the decks where screwed into the coring.
The new and much improved design features 2 ½” plywood coring with ¾” fiberglass above and below for a total of a 4” thick deck. With ¾” of fiberglass on top, the deck screws don’t penetrate the wood coring. This eliminated the deck leak and core rot issues which were common on the earlier models. Vickie Marie is a 1982 model.
Vickie Marie has only had two owners and her current owners are moving inland necessitating her sale. She is a wonderfully balanced and safe offshore voyager and is ready for her next owner to take her to distant shores.
Bob Perry on the sea trial of the first CT 54 built. “Blasting around San Francisco Bay on my very first design was something I’ll never forget…the helm balance was perfect…”
