1982 Passport 40 Osprey

Osprey is an exceptional Passport 40. Her owners are experienced blue water sailors who previously cruised the South Pacific aboard a Perry designed Valiant 40. When it came time to contemplate another cruise south, they chose another Perry design and have spent the past three years refitting her for long distance cruising based on their experience of what works and what doesn’t. Their plans have changed, making Osprey available to new owners after a fresh refit. With only a minimal amount of time on her new systems, she enjoyed a shakedown cruise over the summer to the Broughton Archipelago and back. Her teak decks have been removed, hull and deck painted, engine serviced, electronics replaced, pumps, lifelines, standing rigging and new batteries, and the list goes on. This is a preliminary specification, please contact Swiftsure Yachts for additional details. If you are contemplating long distance cruising, do not miss this opportunity to own a freshly refitted Passport 40!

1977 Downeaster 45

Downeaster 45s are widely recognized for their distinctive clipper bow, hourglass transom stern and full displacement keel. They were engineered and built by American craftsmen to accommodate the very special demands of blue water cruisers, and are highly sought after today.

Her one piece hull is hand laid up and double laminated to the top of the boot, with triple laminations on centerline. The internal ballast is sculpted and faired to conform to hull shape. All through hull fittings below the waterline are solid bronze seacocks. The deck to hull glance is epoxied and mechanically fastened. For added strength, the deck is a lamination of fiberglass and a high density closed cell material instead of balsa or plywood. All deck fittings are back-plated for extra safety. The engine room is large enough for easy inspection and maintenance and sound proofed with 1.5\” foam.

Careful consideration was given to the interior to ensure live aboard comfort, with three enclosed double staterooms separate from the main salon. The owner\’s stateroom is aft, and contains a king size bert, abundant hanging lockers and storage compartments. A vanity and adjoining head and shower help make any voyage a pleasure.

The main salon features a large setee that can be converted into a queen size berth. The large galley features full length cabinetry and can supply even the longest cruise.

The cutter rigged boat can easily be handled by a crew of two. Because of her ultimate stability, the DownEaster 45 stays dry and comfortable even in heavy winds. Any cruiser that truly wants to voyage should closely consider a Downeaster 45.

1976 Bristol Channel Cutter

The Bristol Channel Cutter has achieved unprecedented respect as a capable & safe passagemaker. Dozens of these handsome, stout vessels have made ocean crossings, circumnavigations and are used as cruising homes by sailors who prefer simplicity, integrity and economy in their choice of boats. Few yachts have a more devoted, if not fanatical, group of owners. Vixen is hull #2 of the B.C.C.’s to be built by Sam Morse Co. (previous hulls were built in Vancouver, BC), and was hand finished by designer Lyle Hess’s right hand man, Craig Johnson.

Her joiner work is esquisite, her custom bronze hardware would be impossible to duplicate today. Highly recommended to those who seek the highest quality in a well proven cruising classic; a truly special boat.

Recent upgrades include:

New Yanmar 3GM30F fresh water cooled engine with less than 20 hours
Custom Sunbrella full boat cover for complete winter protection and coverage

1977 Fuji 35

Hooligan is a fine example of the Alden designed 35-foot Fuji ketch. She’s powered by a Yanmar 3HM35F, has newer batteries, Prosine battery charger/inverter and Matrix tank monitor. She features Raymarine and TackTick instrumentation, including autopilot, speed, depth and wind. The Iverson dodger, sail covers and bimini canvas are all in good condition. The interior is clean and leak free. This is a wonderful boat at a great price.

The John G. Alden office has been known for years for producing fine performing yachts. The Fuji follows in this tradition. It is of a hull form that traces its model back to the well-known Alden schooners. The sheer and other aesthetic treatments on the hull are done with impeccable taste. The beam on deck is generous. This makes for a very dry boat and has the bonus of affording large side decks and a huge cockpit area. While the Fuji won\’t point like an IOR racing yacht, she will move to weather well, to cruising boat standards. The keel is long but cut away slightly forward to improve maneuverability. The large transom and the minimum overhang of the mizzen boom is ideal for attaching a self-steering device. The displacement / length ratio of the Fuji 35 is 413. This indicates the Fuji is in the heavy displacement area.

Very few people can go below a Fuji for the first time without some sort of pleasant exclamation. The woodwork is of a quality that is all but extinct and has to be one of the main selling points of the Fuji. The builder is Fuji Yacht Builders, Japan. The molding details are some of the best that can be found on a production yacht. Wood lovers will feel right at home. The builder has gone to the trouble of matching all the grains, and the overall impression is beautiful. The layout of the Fuji is quite simple and a time-proven winner.

December 2015 Survey: “This boat is exceptionally clean and well maintained.””…found to be a well-constructed, appointed, and comfortable vessel.”

– New bottom paint & zincs Aug 2015
– Bottom pressure washed, sanded Aug 2015
– New batteries summer 2014
