He will send you extensive information about this elegant boat.

It’s a pleasure to cruise or live onboard Vagabond. The boat has a spacious, light-drenched cabin that boasts beautiful varnished wood, plush carpeting, and comfortable upholstered seating. The two occasional chairs are comfortable. The captain’s and navigator’s chairs have new upholstery and superb views. From the fantail, a ladder leads to a flybridge with comfortable seating, great views, second helm, and a dingy and winch for exploring when anchored in a private cove.

Below, you’ll find a fully-equipped galley with oven, stove, microwave, large refrigerator, icemaker, great storage. The head is good-sized with shower and gorgeous brass fittings. A large couch converts to a full bed. The dining area comfortably seats 5-6 and the table swivels. A wide glass skylight lets in light and tons of fresh air.

Description: 1987 Cape George 36

Best of both worlds – a custom wooden boat built inside a fiberglass hull.

If you want the beauty and quality of a wooden boat but with a lot less maintenance, this is for you. Classic William Atkins cutter design of 1930’s Tally Ho Major adapted by Ed Monk. Built by the craftsmen at Cape George Marine Works (prev Cecil Lange & Sons) in Port Townsend, WA. Only two owners since launch in 1987. Two major refits. ‘Bulwarks job’ (replacing original wood bulwarks with fiberglass) done! Moored in Sausalito.

Length: 25′
Beam: 7.25′
Draft: 1.5′
Price: $85,000
Description: SHEARWATER is a high-efficiency light weight cabin cruiser designed by Bieker Boats in Seattle, launched in 2006. The boat carries a 60-hp Yamaha outboard and weighs a little over 2,000 lbs (907 kg) wet. The hull bottom is okume and sapele plywood and the topsides are 14mm red cedar strip planking. The deck, house and internal structure is foam-cored vacuum bagged carbon composite. The composite parts and hull sheathing is post-cured Pro-Set epoxy. The fine entry and high flared bow make for no pounding and a very comfortable ride even in lumpy chop. Top speed is 20 knots, and she cruises very efficiently at 13 knots. Fuel consumption at 13 knots is just over 2g/h (7.6 liters/hr). There is a floodable ballast tank for easier docking and a more comfortable ride at anchor. The cockpit is self-draining and water tight, and the transom is low for easy beach and water access. The cabin is a simple V-berth with lockers and a porta-potti. An LPG stove and fresh water pump are located in the helm seat boxes. Yellow cedar cockpit gratings and a convertible carbon cockpit table make life in the cockpit delightful for meals or sleeping. A light-weight Jester sailing dinghy sits inverted in chocks over the outboard while underway. Shearwater has been a beloved family cruiser for the past decade, regularly travelling over 600 nm per year from Seattle to Desolation Sound and back. Includes winter cover, dodger, camper top, side curtains and trailer with new bearings and brakes.

Manawa Nui

Length: 54′
Beam: 13′
Draft: 5.5′
Description: Massively built and exceptionally well found. Her graceful, double-ended hull was designed to ease through the waves, while her shallow draft is ideal for dallying in secret coves. The pilothouse saloon is your personal nautical living room. Its doors to port and starboard provide a refreshing airflow, and the opening windows – appointed with Venetian blinds for privacy – allow 360-degree views.

In 1941, the elegant yacht Manawa Nui was commissioned by a New Zealand lumber baron to be created from the finest materials, including prized kauri pine. On assignment with the U.S. Navy during World War II, she served as a submarine patrol vessel and carried secret agents to their Pacific posts. Admiral “Bull” Halsey sailed her as his personal yacht and Eleanor Roosevelt was a guest on board.

Air-conditioned throughout, Manawa Nui accommodates four guests in two extremely comfortable cabins. The Master Cabin is fitted with a large double bed while the forward cabin has two oversized twin berths. Both cabins offer the privacy of their own ensuite heads with showers. The safe, uncluttered decks provide a variety of seating and lounging arrangements. The foredeck settee, unusual on a sailing vessel of this size, is a particularly lovely spot to relax. Manawa Nui was the winner of 1999 Concours d’Elegance, racing at Antigua Classic Regatta
Price: $125,000

Baby Lou Skiff – “Thin Lizzy”

Length: 12′
Price: $2,625
Description: Boat designer William Atkin loved the simple beauty and utility of flat-bottomed skiffs. Many different skiff designs came from his drafting table including Baby Lou, a little 10-footer that was inspired by working boats Atkin had first seen in the late 1800s on Lower New York Bay.
NWSWB has stretched the original design to 12 feet, with slightly more beam. The Baby Lou is lapstrake-planked in Alaska Yellow Cedar with Western Red Cedar thwarts and bottom, copper-riveted planks and Mahogany for the gunwales, inwales and transom. They are beautiful, easily-driven skiffs that would be great for lake fishing, or as a skiff aboard a larger cruising boat. Light enough for two people to carry to the water’s edge and can be transported in the back of a pickup truck.
