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.

Owner: Tom & Patty Henderson
