S/V Concubine

37' Chinese Junk

S/V Concubine is a custom solid built Chinese Junk built in 1960 and refit in 1983.  The Chinese Junk rig is the simplest, safest and easiest to handle cruising rig of all.  A properly sailed Junk is very stiff and rarely heels more than 20 degrees.  It is also a simple rig with no fancy fittings to fail, no stays, no winches to grind, no sail tracks are needed.  There are no booms nor spreaders.  No sail changes are ever necessary  nor are extra sails needed to be stored down below.  A proper Junk will heave-to without any sail up.  The swept-up stern keeps the bow into a blow.  S/V Concubine is built for blue water sailing.

She has teak topsides, deckhouse, dodger, bulwarks decks, spindles and railings.  The teak plank deck has a urethane membrane surface poured over it so that is is very tough and easy to care for.  She has Yacal bottom planking(very hard, practically toredo shipworm proof) huge frames & simple solid and short spars, bronze fastened.  She is overbuilt by Western standards.  The interior is a collection of fine woods including Heart pine, walnut, cherry, redwood, juniper, etc. all bronze fastened.  This boat is built of solid timber.  There is no plywood in the construction.  She has cast lead internal ballast along with cast steel external ballast, a steel rudder with diamond shaped holes for no-drag steering.  Under power she is very maneuverable and will turn around in her own length making her easy to dock. 

Concubine has a 275 gallon stainless steel water tank and a 220 gallon stainless fuel tank, air conditioning, diesel generator, power inverter/battery charger, dual galley sinks, refrigeration, hot water, Skipper manual head, a two-speed bronze, hand crank windlass with chain rode, pot bellied heat stove, 10" compass from a Liberty Ship, bronze portholes, beautiful carved wood and bronze fittings and decorations above deck and below.  She has an all bronze wheel and all fittings above and below are of bronze.  She has a swim platform under the stern that doubles as strong shutters used over the cabin windows when at sea.
