A classic beauty, the SEAFARER is a dream come true!

Powered by a 1980's model Gray Marine 6-71 diesel inboard. 9 knot cruise at 4 gph.  Has a 470-gallon fuel capacity, making fuel dock stops far and few between.  

Major refit in 2007, which continues to this day, including plank repair, refinished exterior wood, refastening, recaulk, new wiring throughout including electrical panels, new plumbing, hydraulic steering, newer 8kW Northern Lights gen set, updated electronics, new appliances.

The SEAFARER has managed to modernize the on board accouterments and simultaneously maintain the incredible class and charm of the bygone era.

Most every detail has been attended to and the spectacular interior finishes are remarkable.

Built by Lake Washington Shipyard, designed by John Winslow, she has a Carvel planked cedar hull, 2" x 2" oak frames on 9" centers, teak weather decks, canvas covered tongue and groove cabin tops, cabin trunks with varnished plank sides, lovely teak transom.
