"Tumbleweed" is a one-owner, well travelled and well cared for PDQ-34 Power-Cat. It has provided its owners with excellent adventures. Just after commissioning in May 2004, it was the lead boat in a well-publicized flotilla up the Rideau Canal (“Riding the Rideau”by Bill Parlatore, PassageMaker Magazine, October 2004), completed the Lake Champlain loop in 2005, and then went on to complete America’s Great Loop in 2006-07. With twin staterooms, and large salon with a dining table that can comfortably seat six, it has great space for daily living. After completing the Loop, Tumbleweed served the live-aboard owners a further three years cruising up and down the east coast ICW, from Ottawa to the Keys every spring and fall, before finally being shipped to Victoria B.C. in June 2010.
It has since spent the summers cruising the Puget Sound and the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
"Tumbleweed" is well set up for live-aboard cruising, with the extras that this life requires: three anchors and 100’ of 3/8 chain, refurbished full heavy-duty canvas for foul weather travel (from Coast Guard fabric, a 30% heavier weave than traditional Sunbrella, including side and front awnings for tropical comfort). The fly bridge is huge, has entertained a dozen people with no boat movement, and makes a great sunroom when at anchor or at the dock. It cruises comfortably at 10-12 knots, topping out at 15 knots, burning 2 gallons per hour at cruising speed, but can push through tidal currents when required. Because it draws only 2’4”, and has depth sounders for both hulls, it is also ideal for working into very shallow water. If you plan to do the great loop, Tumbleweed is all set to go: it comes with the full complement of electronic charts for the Loop, as well as those needed for the Pacific Northwest.
