2018 She was back at Watercraft Ventures again

2019 While on a Watercraft Ventures mooring, she experienced a through-hull-fitting leak and was partially submerged before being rescued. The interior accommodation basically rendered unusable by the inundation, but because the hull and
rigging were still sound, the decision was made to rebuild/refurbish the interior once again

202? Rebuild/refurbishment almost completed, but due to post-Covid business demands, the current owner is interested to offer her for sale to someone who will embrace Sorcerer and take her on new adventures to expand her history as a “One-ton Momma with a heart of Gold”

2023 For Sale Sorcerer can accommodate 6-8 people sleeping: forepeak berth (1-2 persons); two pilotberths; two cabin berths; and one quarter berth (1-2 persons). She has: an ice-box but no refrigerator (refrigeration could be added to the ice-box); space for a gimbaled stove-top & oven (not replaced after inundation); a toilet and shower room; a solar panel aft of the cockpit to keep the batteries topped-up; and, a shore-power inlet for use when in the marina.
