Sailboat

Our Vessel
We are proud to welcome you aboard the WANDERBIRD. This vessel is the culmination of our over forty years combined experience as professional mariners. We invite you to join us aboard this extraordinary vessel. We have drawn from our experience of carrying passengers on a traditional rigged sailing ship to create a custom design for your safety and comfort. WANDERBIRD is a combination of several elements: a traditional ketch auxillary sailing rig, interiors with classic yacht design, a gourmet galley, the strength and integrity of a working fishing vessel and capabilities for off-shore adventure.



the galley

Amenities:
· Intimate Setting - 12 Passengers Aboard Our 90 Foot Vessel
· Varnished Woodwork in Galley, Library, Dining Area & Deck Salon
· Large Spacious Decks
· Spacious, Bright & Open Galley
· 6 Cosy and comfortable double cabins
· Private Head & Shower in Each Cabin

the coach house
One of the favorite shipboard places for relaxation is the deck house. The deck house is completely protected from the weather, with lots of windows, beautiful varnished wood panels, a reading library, comfortable couches and even a traditional shipmate stove. At night, the salon is filled with lantern light, song and stories. Musical instruments are always welcome!

The below-deck salon is laid out in the typical style of a 19th century pilot schooner, with a warm comfortable wood interior. It was designed for educational films and natural history demonstrations, and can double as an informal classroom.

Shore-Side Adventures:
We carry two boats that take us on shore side adventures:
· Our stout 20' skiff with 75hp outboard engine
· Our favorite little row boat; a wooden classic

Our choice blend of old and new:
The WANDERBIRD is a traditional styled vessel with modern navigation & safety equipment. Our engine is used to take us on our planned course, and sails are supplementary. Modern equipment is used for whalesong recording and other safety/research purposes. But our loving restoration of the WANDERBIRD has retained the feeling of the old Dutch fishing vessel by using traditional materials wherever possible.

Her steel and wood construction combine the 20th-century's highest safety standards with the authenticity of classic 19th-century North Sea fishing vessel.

History:
Wanderbird was built as a classic North Sea fishing trawler by the H. de Hass shipyard in Maassluis, Holland. She was launched as beam trawler for the Jaczon's, a Dutch fishing family, in 1963 and fished until 1990. A beam or side trawl carries fishing nets from the side of the vessel. The Dutch have a reputation for being some of the worlds finest shipbuilders, and the North Sea has a reputation for being one of the most cold, harsh, rough seas in the world. She was built to Dutch standards and operated year round in the extreme conditions of the North Sea for 27 years! We chose Wanderbird for her ability to combine tough, dependable transportation with comfort, safety and 19th century European style. Her massively constructed steel hull and high bulwarks make her an optimal choice for safely carrying passengers in Alaska, the North Atlantic and Canadian Maritmes.
