Nais is a gem. She was built in Denmark in 1950 and she’s had good ownership throughout her lifetime. The current owner has had her, except for a brief hiatus, since 1999 and raised his kids sailing the PNW aboard.

Boat History: Nais was shipped from Denmark to Massachusetts where she was under the care of a well-known Port Townsend Shipwright, Allan Preston. In the early 1980’s Nais was trucked to Port Townsend where she sailed for a few years before being consigned to a flat-bed truck. She was rescued in 1987 and received a new spruce mast from Europe, all new running and standing rigging and new PT Sails, Carol Hasse sails. The current owner purchased Nais in 1999 and brought her back to the care of Allan Preston who had since moved to Port Townsend. The owner commissioned Mr. Preston to replace a number of worn oak floors with new purple heart along with a fresh set of keel bolts. All new berthing was also constructed. Additionally, Nais was completely wooded and given fresh coats of Epifanes varnish along with new topside paint. In 2010, when the current owner purchased a larger sailing vessel, he sold Nais to another Port Townsend resident who lowered the ballast and replaced the knotted oak keelson with new purple heart. Both garboard strakes were also replaced along with a new set of keel bolts. Additionally, the deck and house were refit with new canvas. Then the current owner purchased Nais back to sail her again. Now, he’s purchased another wood boat that requires his full attention so Nais is available for purchase.

Last Haul-Out and Bottom Paint: October 2020

Last Engine Service: October 2020

Last Oil Change: October 2020

Folkboat’s are well suited for the PNW with their full keel. They are very seaworthy, stable and maneuverable vessels. Nais is ready to go sailing. She’s even more gorgeous in person.
