About the Boats

Raptor, a Catalina MKII 36'

We’re happy to add Raptor to our fleet! This boat is lovely. One of our Captains immediately nick-named her “Rapture”.

rap·ture – noun ˈrap-chər: a state or feeling of great happiness, pleasure, or love

Each boat sails with an outdoor gas grill to mount in the cockpit of the boat. Most meals that can be made at home are possible including steaks, pasta, pizza, shish-kabobs, soups, full breakfasts etc. All pots and pans, dishes, utensils, soap & kitchen linens are provided. There is a large cooler, stove, oven and plenty of storage. Raptor even has a microwave!

Dragonfly, a Pearson 38.5' center cockpit

She is a Pearson 385 Center Cockpit Sloop.  This is a big, comfortable boat that sails well.  With the cockpit in the center of the boat, rather than the stern, there is room for a large private aft cabin with a double bed, private head with shower. The boat provides excellent ventilation with five opening ports and a large hatches. 

The rest of the cabin is similar to our other boats, with a v-berth double bed, another head with shower, galley with stove and oven, and the main cabin with convertible table/double bed and single bed.  With the addition of the cockpit tent with screens, people can sleep in the open air also. The water tank holds 170 gallons of fresh water so we never run out.  This boat is made for comfort and safety. A big, heavy boat has a slower motion and handles rough water better than a modern, lightweight boat.

Vahevala, a 1982 Tartan 37’

We’re happy to introduce you to Vahevala, the newest boat in our fleet. Her name comes from the 1971 Loggins and Messina song that celebrates “Vahevala” , a fictional island paradise beloved by sailors.

Tartans are well known for their great sailing performance and this 1982 Tartan features modern lines, beautiful blue hull and classic teak interior. The Tartan 37 is considered one of today’s classic cruising yachts. Designed by Sparkman and Stephens with a lot of direct input from Tartan Yachts, the boat was introduced in 1976. The Tartan 37 has a reputation for being stable with acceptable upwind performance, but really excels downwind on a reach. The boat is known to be easy to single hand and fun to sail often making it our captain’s favorite boat to sail. Down below, the interior is traditional, however with close to 12 feet of beam, the Tartan 37 is larger than you might expect. Teak veneer and trim is used abundantly and white formica is used overhead.

Dreamcatcher, a Pearson 33'

Dreamcatcher is our flagship vessel. She’s currently dry-docked and having a rest for this summer.
