The Timeless Elegance Of Multi Mast Sailboats In Photographs

The current thread running now about the dead ketch sailboats is proving to be anything but dead. Been the hottest thread for days and days It is also showing there are many types of multi masted sailboats alive and well today.

Show everyone pics of your favorite multi masted sailboats, yours, or just one you love seeing in waters around you. Let us know what it is, and where it can be seen, and if the skipper is open to sailboat rides when the weather is obliging.

This is my 32 foot Clipper Marine aft cabin ketch. I purchased this in April in LA and used uShip to bring it to Nebraska where I sail her on a small 1800 acre lake. Originally built as the largest trailerable sailboat in 1976, we only trailer her to sit out the Nebraska winters on land. Her beam is a sleek 8' to make her trailerable anywhere by most any larger passenger vehicle. Weight on a six wheel trailer is under 9000 pounds. She has a draft of 3'8". Her ballast is fin keel at 1200 pounds. Displacement is 5000 pounds. Her main mast is 27.5' and her mizzen is 20'. Her square feet of sail for foresail, main, and mizzen is 350 square feet. Her designer was William Crealock that later went on to design several very sought offer designs for Pacific Seacraft and others. He is quoted as saying he was very proud of his line of Clipper Marine sailboats. In almost 40 years, we were the first to name her, and we picked Sugar Bee, after our Maltese that sails with us. She is Edson wheel steering from a center cockpit. Two double berths, bow and aft cabin state room or owners cabin as it is called in the literature of the time. Two bunks in the main cabin bring this to accommodations for six adults. I am very pleased to own and sail her, and she brings a beauty and elegance to her dock, and water that all that see her is pleased with. My goal of the largest sailboat my dock would allow is realized in this timeless sailboat.

Please post pictures and a description of your multi masted sailboat for all of us to enjoy.

Re: The Timless Elegance Of Multi Mast Sailboats In Photographs

There was a thread recently of a modern boat being matched by a 100 yr old boat. There are advantages to a long low sail plan, one of them is the interaction between sail, the other is less heel.
The stay sail on my old Prout would, when I got it right, put a dimple in the main as it deflected the breeze onto the back of the main, making the important back of the sail work effectively.
Heel, well an aircraft has a couple of degrees of dihedral, more than that is wasteful, yet mono sail with 20 deg spilling so much driving effort. That also explains why cats get more from their sails with a stiffer boat. Downside is that mono's spill gusts, cats break things.
Beauty, well there are a few ugly boats, it's not limited to sail plan, but those old timber rigged and clinker built boats have a certain magic about them.

Re: The Timless Elegance Of Multi Mast Sailboats In Photographs

I could not agree more. To my eye a split rig multi masted sailing vessel is a thing of great beauty. I love then all, but I love Schooners the most. The two masted Schooner with a gaff on each or with a gaff on the main and a stay sl of the fore is just a joy forever. The Stay Sl schooner is widely regarded as the most sea worthy of rigs.
This is Talisman on the right when we first owned her and on the left as she looked last year. I am working on the bow sprit and the rig.

Re: The Timless Elegance Of Multi Mast Sailboats In Photographs

This is my boat; Oceana: It's a dutch built Steel Ketch made in 1938. I purchased her in a sad state of disrepair but she used to be owned by a pretty famous actor: Guy Williams. Mr. Williams played Zorro in the Black and white TV series, and he was the dad in Lost in space. He often went sailing with Roy and Walt Disney.

Mr William's son gave me some photos of the boat from those times that I think are pretty amazing, I hope you'all enjoy them as much as I do!

Re: The Timless Elegance Of Multi Mast Sailboats In Photographs

Introducing the schooner Mavourneen Mary. Built for Maureen O'Hara and sadly rotting away now in Napa. I wanted to try to save her but my Bay Area job prospect fell through so I had to give up on that idea. I believe she was built by Boeing in Vancouver Washington but I could very easily be remembering wrong. Can't remember the year she was built.

Re: The Timeless Elegance Of Multi Mast Sailboats In Photographs

I posted this pic to another thread, but this is a fitting place. My dream boat would be a long (Bigger the 50 foot) steel ketch or schooner. I have my eye on one in the Netherlands. If no one buys her by the spring of 2014, she'll be mine

This is my Morgan OI 41 (with an OI 51 in the background). Grew up on a gaff topsail schooner and would have one again if I could find a suitible one.

This is a 1981 Nautical Development 60 ft. Ketch rig. New to me as of 1 April. I just love looking at this boat! Someplace close to 30 tons she is a very calm and stable lady. Still got some sexy lines on her though. Fun comfortable ride, very dry and thank goodness for me since I'm still learning to sail very forgiving!

lol, it would be cool but no. it's a painting of the boat that guy williams Jr has hanging on his wall. Sr. had it commissioned to show the boat and the two kids at her berth in San Pedro. (my old stomping ground, so to me the background is as interesting as the painting itself

This is the O W Fowler, on Lake Maxincukee, in Indiana. She's operated by Culver Military Academy, as a training vessel. CMA is a High School level academy, by the way. She's an 80 footer, and is a hull I'd buy in a heartbeat if Culver ever sold her.
