Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

We have a 68 Seabreeze. We have been restoring and updating her for the last 13 years. We had her shipped from New Orleans to MI when we bought her 14 years ago. I have not heard a sound out of the board. Ours orignally had the aluminum board, but before we bought the boat a previous owner had a slightly ballasted glass board built. She is not super fast upwind but on a reach or run sails quickly and is very comfortable on all points of sail.

Boat: Allied Seabreeze 36 bare hull
Posts: 13
Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

I have hull #25, which was also damaged in a hurricane. I have brought her to " bare hull" status. the interior is ground down to bare glass all chainplates, engine beds, tabbing ,& stringers removed. If anyone is looking for a project, I am selling her for $5k . she comes with a Yanmar 3cyl, rigging,like new hood main, new spinnaker, several jibs.The deck/hull joint by the stb chainplates is cracked and my next step is to repair it. by the way, anyone with one of these boats should probably replace all the chainplates, and reglass them properly.

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

We are in the process of buying a bronze Seabreeze sloop in good condition, with a 2001 Beta 36 hp diesel, and will appreciate all thoughts, comments, suggestions, and sailing stories that anyone cares to offer...

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

Having trouble with the concept of a "bronze Seabreeze."

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

The early Seabreezes had a bronze center board. Later ones were aluminum. Don't know what the changeover hull number was. Would be willing to bet a '68 Seavbreeze was built with a bronze board.

I wanted a Seabreeze when I was looking at buyig a boat 6 years ago. There were none for sale on the west coast at that time so settled for a Pearson 35. Not as pretty a boat but sails reasonably well and has a comfortable motion.

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

"Bronze Seabreeze" is shorthand for a Seabreeze with a bronze (380 lb.) rather than an aluminum (lighter & more problematic) centerboard.

Many are yawls, some are sloops. The Seabreeze was designed by Maclear and Harris, who along with Al Mason designed the legendary Finisterre while working for Sparkman & Stephens.

The Seabreeze has been called a fiberglass Finisterre, and is generally one of the most well-regarded production boats of its era.

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the Seabreeze is the same basic hull design as its slightly smaller sister , the Seawind. I realize that the Seabreeze has a little less draft and a centerboard , but many similarities. My point in telling this is that I think all Allied boats from that era were very good. I delivered a Seawind from Cabo San Lucas to San Francisco many years ago. After 1800 miles or so, I decided that the Seawind had the most comfortable motion of any boat I had ever sailed on or delivered. It was mostly a motorsail slog to windward, but the absence of pounding made it a real pleasant trip. The Seabreeze or Seawind would be on my next boat list except they are usually out of my price range. My 2 cents worth.____Grant.

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

The SeaWind was a Thomas Gilmer cruising design usually built as a ketch. Beamy, shallow draft, long keel, outboard rudder, usually with worm gear wheel steering. In short a good boat for long ocean passages but not an around the buoys racer. It was such a good design that it was the first fiberglass boat to do a circumnavigation without the benefit of self steering or autopilot, IIRC.

The SeaBreeze was a cruiser racer designed to the CCA rule. Long overhangs and sweet lines that the rule engendered with a large cockpit for racing crew and cutaway forefoot for reduced wetted surface and quicker steering.

In short, they are two entirely different designs. The Seawind was such a successful boat that Allied stretched it out a bit and built a SeaWind II.

Re: Allied Seabreeze with CB

Hi Pete, I stand corrected (not unussual for me) on the Seabreeze Seawind comparison but I will stick by my statement that the Seawind was the most pleasant upwind boat that I delivered. Would make a great cruising boat.____Grant.

Not sure what you guys are missing but they show up fine on my end.







Actually, I got them from his profile page, I assume they are the ones he wanted to post.
