Pacific NW Sailboat Builders

I am looking for a sailboat manufacturer located in the Pacific Northwest that offers small cruisers between 30 and 36'. What are the top sailboat manufacturers in the area?

Re: Pacific NW Sailboat Builders

Good to hear they're still making Cascade's, they have a strong following up here. I'm really shocked to hear the San Francisco Bay area considers itself part of the Great Northwest, maybe we schould succeed! It wasn't that way back in the mid 70's when I was stationed down there, some still believed we were the wild west, horseback and gun toting, totally different from the Bay Area. Come to think about it, maybe we were.

Re: Pacific NW Sailboat Builders

Check out Cape George boats in Port Townsend. They're building Bristol Channel cutters as well as their famous Cape George cutter (Atkin Tally-Ho)

I think you're refering to the Channel Cutter:

Re: Pacific NW Sailboat Builders

He's a really nice guy. I bought my Nature's Head from him. He had one of the boats under way in his boat shed. He also has a couple of old restorations going on as well.

Re: Pacific NW Sailboat Builders

The best boatbuilder in the PNW IMHO is Eric Jespersen in Sidney BC.
