Ted Brewer ALASKA
Hi, below is the information from the Ted Brewer design site followed by the actual boat
information for ours. The design we have varies a bit from the stock Alaska
in that the keel
is 1 foot deeper and the boat
is 1 foot longer in the aft. The pilot house is 6 inches taller giving 6'9" headroom
throughout. We do not consider this a motorsailer
due to it performing amazing in all wind
conditions and we can easily get it up to hull speed
in the wind
The ALASKA was designed for an owner who wanted an economical, double chine, steel motorsailer
suited for extensive cruising as well as live aboard use. The ALASKA is the result.
Despite her motorsailer design, her long waterline, well cutaway keel
and tall, efficient rig will ensure good performance within the limits of her modest draft
and husky displacement
Featuring accommodations for 7-8 in four separate cabins, ALASKA is well suited to live aboard use and long range cruises.

, and three skylight/hatches will provide adequate ventilation in all weathers.
is on the small side but much of the time at the helm
will be spent in the pilot house or on auto pilot. The flush deck
offers ample lounging space in good weather
, while the high bulwarks provide security
in heavy going.
is tabernacle stepped since the owner's plans called for European canal
cruising in a few years. The rig is strongly stayed, of course, with double spreaders and intermediate backstays

Economy was given considerable weight in the design. The double chine steel hull
is, definitely, the least expensive of any one-off construction and the flush decks further simplify construction and reduce costs. There is little woodwork on deck
to add to cost, or maintenance

Power is by a very fuel
miserly Saab diesel
of 30 h.p. However, larger engines up to 60-70 bhp can be fitted if preferred. In any case, the ALASKA will be easily driven due to her very long waterline so her generous fuel
tankage assures a respectable cruising range.
The sailor looking for a versatile, simple-to-build and economical long range cruiser should give ALASKA a second glance.

Contact us for a full list. This boat is ready to go around the world. We have built it over the last 2 years and all the systems are tested. This is an amazing boat. We have had some changes in our life and are reluctant to sell. We planned to circumnavigate with it. There was more than 6000 hours of preparation done so far. Entire Corten 6mm (1/4inch)hull was ultrasounded and re-epoxied inside and out. Devoe Barust 237 Over rustbullet. All standing and running rigging
have been replaced with spares on board. This is a tabernackle stepped mast
made to be dropped for canal

while being strong enough to travel anywhere. All electrical
is 000 gauge for lossless performance. All switches changed to breakers. Lots of extras like new diesel forced air heat and more not mentioned. You can leave to Mexico
on it this year!
