36' Custom Bluewater Cruising Sailboat $20,000



36' Sea Dawn Gaff Rigged Ketch For Sale - San Diego, California

Sea Dawn is 36-feet in length and 11 feet in width and is of the husky seagoing type intended for service on deep waters but just as suitable for sailing on Long Island Sound, the Great Lakes or any similar bodies of water. The ketch rig was used for obvious reasons. For short-handed cruising there has never been a better rig. In a short squall the mainsail can be let go with a rush and there will still be canvas enough to keep way on the boat. Below decks Sea Dawn is laid out to suit the desires of the average yachtsman. There are berths for four and a good toilet and galley. The latter is equipped with a sink, large freezer and one of the old-reliable Shipmate ranges.

*************************************************

THE 36-FOOTER SEA DAWN by Daniel S. Crocker, Jr. The auxiliary ketch Sea Dawn, was designed by the well-known Boston designer, S. S. Crocker, Jr. who has specialized for many years in the design of yachts of the cruising type. Sea Dawn is 36-feet in length and 11 feet in width and is of the husky seagoing type intended for service on deep waters but just as suitable for sailing on Long Island Sound, the Great Lakes or any similar bodies of water. We have heard a great deal about the seaworthiness of centerboard boats and we have received so many letters in this regard that we have no excuses to make for the use of the board in Sea Dawn. She is not an extreme shallow draft craft for there is a fairly deep keel with a good deal of drag which should be sufficient to permit her to go to windward in shoal water with a fair amount of success. In deeper waters the board can be sent down to provide the maximum lateral plane area. The ketch rig was used for obvious reasons. For short-handed cruising there has never been a better rig. In a short squall the mainsail can be let go with a rush and there will still be canvas enough to keep way on the boat. The average yawl has so small a mizzen that she will do nothing but bob up and down in the sea if the mainsail is taken off. The total area of canvas is low but quite sufficient for a cruising boat where comfort is the watchword and the crew is not pleased with the idea of jumping about every few minutes shifting sails. If there is any one item which can utterly spoil a good hull it is over-canvasing. Sea Dawn is fitted with a gaff-headed rig. Without a doubt many readers will think that they prefer the jibheaded, or Marconi, rig. Those who insist upon making this change are referred to the designer who no doubt will be quite willing to design a new sail plan, at his regular fee for such work. From the standpoint of THE RUDDER staff we urgently advise you to stick to the gaff rig. If Sea Dawn was intended for afternoon racing we would suggest a marconi rig but for ordinary cruising there has never been a better rig than the one shown. Below decks Sea Dawn is laid out to suit the desires of the average yachtsman. There are berths for four and a good toilet and galley. The latter is equipped with a sink, ice-box and one of the old-reliable Shipmate ranges. We believe that many owners of this fine boat will feel that four is a crowd, and not company, in a boat of this size. A suggestion for such folks would be to make the saloon berths a little longer and to add a great deal to the locker space.

Thanks John

She is a beautiful boat. I just started listing her on the internet for my friend Vicky. She just lost her husband a couple weeks ago and she feels that she needs to sell the boat. Thanks, Casey
