Braesail is a 2001 Moody 46 cutter. She is a Lloyds class A ocean cruiser. One of 55 built, she was lovingly cared for by Mike and Sandy Olsen until Lorelette and Walt Knowles bought her in 2015. She is equipped with a 10′ Mercury dinghy, a fully enclosed cockpit, lots of battery capacity, and an all-seasons diesel hydronic heating system.
