Tuwamish made her home between the glaciers of Alaska to the depths of Puget Sound for the first 44 years of her life. She was lovingly maintained everyday by the original builders. Samson was hired to plaster the ferro hull in a single night to create a seamless plaster coating over the ferro armature. The attention to details gets even better below.

We are her second owners since 2015 and moved our family of five aboard. We refit her for a trip to the South Pacific and back but we got distracted by the beauty of the West Coast and only made it as far as Mexico. Kids getting older and other family dynamics have us back in the San Juan Islands and we are planning an April trip that ultimately brings her back home this spring.

She sleeps 10 comfortably and has a total of four staterooms. Privacy for a modern family can be found in 50 feet.

Tuwamish sails like a freight train on rails through the snot and always makes her tacks while ghosting out of a bay on a light day.

She is just as strong as she is pretty. A low freeboard, springy sheer and Coast Salish art design makes her the jewel of every anchorage. A boat that will always be recognized and never forgotten. You should see her holding her own on a dock full of million dollar yachts. This is your ticket to the Big Leagues. Champagne Cruising on a Beer Budget.

She deserves to be out blowing her skirt up about the seas as she has at least a 100 years of service left in her.

This boat is ready for anything and comes stocked with all the cruising goodies to make her completely self sustainable and extremely comfortable in big seas.

If you can’t wait to climb aboard, we can go visit her this winter in San Carlos, (300 mile south of Tucson.)

Otherwise, put her on layaway until I deliver her to your slip in April.
