This is a very unique boat that is priced to sell. Built in port Townsend in the 80’s by master shipwright Miguel Winterburg and restored at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding four years ago. The restoration included the deck with new canvas and 50% new wood. Some new bottom planking was also installed and the whole bottom was re-caulked.

Keep in mind This boat is a dory and has a different feel than your average boat. It has little initial stability and a lot of secondary stability. It’s very seaworthy and gets a more stable feel when loaded down and when heeled over on the chine. It points surprisingly high on close haul tack when the chine is digging in and the rail is pinned.

The side planking is port orford cedar planks dory lapped with copper rivets. The frames and bottom also appear to be port orford cedar. There is also a yellow cedar bulkhead and mahogany trim and rails. The paint and varnish is fresh.

The engine and tanks have been removed. The shaft and prop are still in place with new packing and freshly bedded packing flange. I have purchased a never used “electric yacht” boat motor model 130ib, for boat size 30’ -36’. Its a 48-72 volt motor with max power at 130amps. batteries and charger not included. The engine beds are in place and the bronze hanger bolts have been purchased. This is a quick plug N’ Play installation compared to a diesel engine and is nice and quiet. The list price includes the new electric motor but the price can be dropped if the buyer does not want the motor. This is why I haven’t installed it yet.

The rig and spars have been meticulously gone through. The main and mizzen sails are basically brand new and crisp Hasse sails. The jib is not as new but still has a lot of life left.
The interior is basically a bunk with sitting head room and has a very attractive wood boat feel. This boat is very unique and is going to be a great cruising boat for the right person.
