I spent the summer of 2022 cruising in Alaska, and this new design reflects features that are ideal for exploring such waters. This is a stout but simple boat, intended for a workboat finish. She's substantial, displacing over 22,000 lbs, which means she can accommodate the stores, gear and tankage needed for cruising in remote areas, and living aboard for long periods. She's designed to be easy to work under sail, with a cutter rig, wide side decks, high bulwarks, and an uncluttered foredeck. The pilothouse provides welcome shelter in cold or wet conditions, while her cabin will be a welcome haven when you've dropped the hook.
Construction is straightforward: strip planking over laminated frames. The keel is a steel box that holds both the ballast and the primary fuel tank. It makes for an incredibly strong structure.
