naA stunning example of this legendary design, "Querencia" is a sister-ship to the famed "Finisterre", three-time winner of the Bermuda to Newport race.   From the drafting board of Sparkman & Stephens Design # 1054, "Querencia" was built at the Wing-on-Shing boatyard in Hong Kong in 1960 and underwent an 18 month restoration from the keel up in 2002.  

The 2002 refit was completed by the current owner, a knowledgeable yachtsman, using a hand-picked team of local craftsmen lead by professional shipwright Ed Lamberson and included: new teak decks, toe rails, skylight and cockpit coamings; a new housetop of Yellow Cedar and canvas over Mahogany beams; stripping of the hull to bare wood inside and out; refinishing of the hull; a gold leaf cove stripe; reconfiguration of the existing cabinetry and complementing of the same with new Yellow Cedar countertops and ceilings;  a complete up to date Raymarine electronics system was installed and includes radar, chart plotter, AIS, sonar, Sirius weather, autopilot, EPIRB and VHF;  new sails, sail cover and bimini from Schauttauer Sails, Inc. of Seattle; a 40 horsepower Yanmar diesel engine was installed; custom designed, stained glass panels from Mesolini Glass Studio of Bainbridge Island for the galley and companionway;  leather seat cushions for the main salon;  ultra suede mattress covers;  cabin lights and hardware imported from England.  Her hull is constructed of 1-1/8" teak planks over Yakel frames fastened in bronze with Abitong deadwood. Her floor grid, centerboard, centerboard trunk, and the mast step are bronze.  Spars are Sitka Spruce; new pin rails are teak.

Throughout this extensive refit,  every effort was made to maintain the integrity of "Querencia's" traditional pedigree.  In 2004 she was re-christened and launched in Port Townsend, Washington.

Since her restoration, "Querencia" has been lovingly and meticulously maintained while being regularly sailed; competing in nine Swiftsure regattas and wooden boat festivals.  She has been Best in Show twice at the Victoria B.C. wooden boat festival.

"Querencia" is a sublime blend of form and function, maintained in Bristol condition and a rare gem in today's marketplace.
