Boat of the Week

Kiyi - 1926

CYA Member No.: 274
Kiyi
Schertzer 50' (Pacific Northwest Fleet)

Kiyi is a classic Pacific Northwest design by Leigh Coolidge, built by the Schertzer Brothers on Lake Union. Her hull is Port Orford cedar over bent oak frames, and her house is all teak. Her original owner supplied supplied all the wood, and spent $5,280 for her construction at the Schertzer yard at the foot of Stone Way.

Fantail designs were not common on vessels less than about 65-feet, since they tend to reduce space available for accommodations.  But with her mere 10-foot beam, the effect on the 50-foot long Kiyi is stunning.

Alden designed "Wander"Join with other CYA vessels as we converge at the Antique & Classic Boat Rendezvous at Mystic Seaport.

There will be a dazzling display of high-quality antique and classic vessels including cruisers, sailboats, and runabouts. An award-competition recognizes excellence in restoration, authenticity, and workmanship. Approximate 35 classic vessels create a colorful gathering along the Museum’s waterfront all day Saturday and Sunday morning.

This year, we feature vessels designed by John G. Alden. After apprenticing under Starling Burgess and B.B. Crowninshield, he opened his own office in 1909 and he went on to design over 900 vessels ranging from small dinghies to power vessels to his famous Malabar racing schooners.

Sunday afternoon, the vessels make their way down the Mystic River in a jubilant, three-mile parade.
