Zanzibar was built in 1957 by the Stephens Brothers yard in Stockton, California, renown for it’s quality. Originally the “Gaylee”, she was commissioned for Portland marine dealer John Trullinger at a cost of $70,000, equivalent to three custom homes at the time. Mrs. Trullinger insisted that the galley be placed up in the mid ships area, creating a unique Quad Cabin design. The house and decks are Burmese Teak. Hull planking is Honduran Mahogany over oak frames. Her sweeping lines follow a 1947 design by Dick Stephens. She has dual helm stations and is powered by a pair of Crusader 8.1 liter Vortec gas engines producing 770 total horsepower. Cruising speed is 13 Knots with a top speed of 19 Knots.
