North Atlantic 29 factory junk rig in Nor Cal

Hello everyone!

I re-listed here after reading that you weren't allowed to post EBAY links .

After a lot of thinking and grungy boat work …I have decided that it's a little too overwhelming for me to have TWO sailboats . The problem is … I love them both! But ….alas , I am going to put my newly acquired North Atlantic 29 back up for sale. This way I can concentrate on finishing up (and actually sailing) my C-Mist 32 .



I figured I would throw this out to my fellow sailors here first before doing a proper listing on the net.



As some of you may know , I recently purchased Dave Chamberlin's old boat "Pelican" . She has a lot of projects to complete , but she is an incredibly solid boat …and very , very well built. You can see one of the sisterships , Yacht Teleport in action here: Teleport Expeditions - Chris Bray & Jess Taunton

Chris and Jess have done some fantastic voyages on a cold molded version of this design.



After spending the last few weeks aboard , cleaning her up and taking stock , it appears that Dave was right in the middle of a complete refit when he sold her. Some gear is only partially installed …meaning not wired up yet and never used.



The boat is "geared up" very well : Wind Generator , Sailomat 3040 wind vane, GPS , Chartplotter , all wind/speed sailing instruments ,a new (uninstalled) 20 gallon fuel tank, 35 lb. CQR knockoff anchor with tons of chain, miles of spare line , a never used $3000. Maxwell power anchor windlass , 2 gorgeous Anderson self tailing winches ,and even has a "Hasler-esque" clear plexiglass dome for one of the round hatches …VERY COOL!



I have the tanbark sail partially rigged (just need to do the parrels) and it and all battens are in fine condition.



The Volvo MD7a (13 h.p.)was partially taken apart , and I , along with some mechanical help , deduced that he was cleaning out the cooling system … pretty common on these. I just spent the last week cleaning and putting the motor back together with new gaskets. She spins freely and has great compression ….but ….now the starter is frozen from sitting so long and needs a rebuild (the starter)



She needs a haul and new bottom paint.



Dave cut out half of the starboard settee to build a proper galley …so , there is a big hole there. The new bulkhead is already cut ….ready to build to suit.



a few days of work sorting the engine …and she will be out sailing , another month of sweat and elbow grease …and you will have a fine , junk rigged vessel that can take you anywhere in safety , comfort and style.



Designed by Angus Primrose and Blondie Hasler

LOA: 29'3 , LWL: 23' , Beam: 9'7 , Draft: 5'6

Sail area: 429 sq. ft. , Ballast: 4200 lb. lead encapsulated

thick , solid , fiberglass hull



The boat is in Alameda , Ca. in a transferable slip in a very cool Marina right next door to a boat yard and numerous boating businesses.



Price : $8000. feel free to message me with any questions , for pictures , and to come see her.

650 701 6452



thanks,

Jonny
