Tristan is a unique, custom-built Dutch steel motor sailor design, originally intended as an ice-crusher. Tristan has been our happy home, while we have been restoring a larger blue-water cruising boat. Ideal for a couple planning on living aboard, and it would be great if outfitted for canal/river travel. It is spacious and cozy with a large pilot house, roomy salon, and captainís aft cabin with a full berth. The aft cabin has a short companionway with full headroom. A long work area/desk to port is an excellent computer work station with a hatch above. There are 2 storage compartments built into the aft walls, a hanging locker, and an amazing amount of storage under the bed. There are many special details, but the roominess and comfort of the interior are among Tristanís best attributes. The ample galley to starboard is well laid out with a 3-burner propane stove, deep drawers and a large storage area under the sink. Additionally there is a neat two- door spice cabinet with 2 shelves built into the wall behind the faucets, which is super-handy for the cook. There is a tall, deep locker directly behind the cook to port with room above it for a microwave, and the head is just aft. The salon features a large fixed table that seats 6, and the forward section of the L-shaped banquette seating, is the favorite lounging area for the tallest of the crew, stretching across the full beam. To starboard is another long banquette with a book shelf above. Another shorter banquet seats 2-3 aft of the salon table. All banquettes have storage underneath the seats, as well as, under the full berth in the bow. A step above is a large single size bed berth hemmed in by the wood paneled bulkhead (no v-berth here), for another lounging area by day with lots of head room. The portlights in the salon give Tristan plenty of natural light, as does the huge pilot house. The pilot house is expansive with full head room, navigatorís chair and seating behind. There is full access to the engine here. Two very large storage compartments can be accessed both port and starboard.
Tristanís handsome and rugged traditional looks have always attracted a sailorís admiration. With attention, Tristan would make a beautiful home for her next owner.
The boat has been sandblasted and repainted with Devoe 235 in 2000/2001. Since then the bottom was painted every 2-3 years. There is almost no visible corrosion- some minor paint chips and rust powder on sharp edges. The bilges has been kept always dry.
Included equipment:
- almost new set of the sails -used only once or twice
- Harken furling stay
- Capilano hydraulic steering
- Cetrek autopilot with a hydraulic pump
- JRC 1000 radar -never used
- Icom VHF radio
- Xantrec 2kW inverter/charger with a remote control
- Link 20 battery monitor
- 2 anchors with 5/16 chain (120')
- Manual windlass Ė modified to attach a motor
and much more
The boat needs:
-new batteries
-check of the engine -hasn't been run for over 3 years
-a new LPG storage box
-some paint work and a lot of TLC


Tristan has been documented with CG
The boat is currently in the slip but it will be removed in October to the dry storage.

Re: 1967 Steel Motorsailer

That's an unmistakably Dutch boat, especially with those lee boards.

I notice you have a foremast tabernacle similar to mine for easy lowering of the mast.



A few Europeans have commented that my steel pilothouse cutter (also, technically, a motorsailer) looks a bit "Dutch". I can see why they say that!

Re: 1967 Steel Motorsailer

Would you mind taking it to Cairo Il on the Mississippi? LOL I'm obviously in the wrong place! While the engine thing scares me, I'd be interested as well, love the looks, but seeing other posts above, I bet you have it sold!

Re: 1967 Steel Motorsailer

Hello everybody
The boat is not sold yet. We cranked the engine and it seems to crank OK.
Unfortunately,due to Hurricane Irene I have to postpone all viewing until next week.
My apology to everyone I haven't answered the questions but I have 2 boats here and also a few friends who need a hand. Let's hope it will pass without creating too much havoc.
