Rare opportunity to own a completely custom vessel in almost new condition at a fraction of the original construction cost:
Designed by local Port Townsend naval architect Jim Franken along the lines of a traditional Scandanavian double ender, and built by the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building over a period of six years, this vessel is a custom, one off design, commissioned by the current owner and launched in 2006.
Heavily ballasted and broad beamed, this vessel is a stable, comfortable sailing platform that lends itself to stress free gunk holing around the waters of the Salish Sea. Massively constructed and skillfully crafted, she exudes charm and character with a simple elegance of a bygone era.
Highlights include a Yanmar diesel with only 550 hours that still looks like new; a new custom wood binnacle/helm station and instruments built in 2017; exterior re-paint in 2017; bottom paint 2017; standing rigging and sails only 11 years old; 1 1/8" Western Larch hull planking on massive sawn White Oak and Black Locust frames; copper rivet and silicon bronze fasteners; Douglas Fir decks with stainless steel fasteners; clear grain Fir cabin sides with tongue and groove Alaskan Yellow Cedar cabin top finished with epoxy over canvas; a unique canvas roll top cabin top panel extending forward from the companionway that floods the interior with natural daylight and provides unlimited headroom below; natural grown deck knees harvested locally; a Sapele fore-hatch and interior paneling; Port Townsend Foundry custom bronze deck hardware; a variable pitch propellor; a full boat cover; roller furling jib; a hank-on self tending staysail; a dripless shaft log; autopilot; depth; wind; knot meter; a composting head; and a bright airy interior.
Close inspection of this vessel reveals many custom fabrication details and touches which explain the substantial original construction cost that was many times the current asking price.
This owner has moved out of state and is keen to see a new owner take over this immaculate wood classic. Offers on the asking price are encouraged.
This vessel is moored on Bainbridge Island and is available for immediate showings.

DESIGN FEATURES AND HISTORY:
The vessel was originally gaff rigged and in 2008 was changed to a sloop by well known professional rigger Brian Toss in Port Townsend to facilitate single-handing for the owner.
In 2010 the owner removed the original low profile house and had the boat converted to an open day sailer. All work was professionally done by Haven Boat Works in Port Townsend.
In 2016/17 the owner decided to re-install an enclosed cabin top with better headroom which is how the vessel looks today.
Note: In the photo of the vessel under sale, the original low profile cabin house is shown. This has since been replaced by the larger cabin which has large ports and excellent headroom, creating a light and airy interior.
In keeping with the desire for simplicity and low maintenance, the vessel is not equipped with a galley or any interior plumbing, and is set up for simple day sailing, and overnight 'boat camping'. A simple portable camping stove could be mounted inside the companionway where there is ample counter space should it be desired.
There is currently no potable water tankage, onboard water system or water heater. However, there is ample space below decks to install additional tankage and as many additional systems as desired.
The current owner prefers to keep the vessel as simple and low maintenance as possible and primarily uses the boat for day sailing and weekending. A tender is not included with the boat.
