Frendship Sloop

44,500.00

 

Friendship Sloops had been popular on the US east coast in the late 1800 and early 1900s.  Many were used by fisherman who appreciated the windward sailing qualities that got them home against offshore winds.  There are a couple of restored vessels from the period still out there and many that have been built since by builders who appreciated the beautiful lines of this design.  

This particular vessel was built near Tofino, BC. by Michael Wright who used quality west coast woods and completed the build in 2010.  This is a larger vessel built to 38 feet on deck with a LOA of 50', this resulted in a Friendship sloop with a cruising cabin without having to deviate from the original lines.  This unique boat caught the attention of many which resulted in a Wooden Boat Magazine Article Dec. 2011 and Western Mariner Article Aug. 2011.  A seaworthy vessel with an enclosed head, forced air heat, pressure water, stove/oven, hydraulic auto pilot and a comfortable bright salon well suited for cruising.  Cruising would be just one suitable use for this vessel as the size and design would lend itself to a commercial day sailor or a fine prize to keep at the end of your dock. ~~

This vessel is constantly being improved, latest additions are a new autopilot, hard dodger, teak cabin sides, a fold down lounging bench on the davits and fresh bottom paint as of October 2014.

Have a look at the full specifications and photo gallery and to see what a unique opportunity this vessel represents, we look forward to showing you this boat.
