Our Vessel

She’s an amazing girl! A beautiful 1978 Pacific Seacraft Mariah 31. She has a full keel with a cutaway forefoot, displaces 16,000 lbs., is 38′ LOA with a 10’8″ beam.  Very stoutly built with a great reputation, she was designed by Henry Morschladt as Pacific Seacraft was just beginning and helped establish their reputation for quality built bluewater capable boats.


She’s a classic with lots (too much?) teak brightwork, lots of interior teak cabinetry and lots of character. We found her in 2011 in St. Augustine, Florida where her previous owners, Wes & Karen Fox, had recently completed a near circumnavigation over an 11 year period. Her former name was “Caprice”. Since then we have refitted her with a new BetaMarine 30 diesel engine, new standing rigging by Port Townsend Rigging and new sails from Kern Ferguson. Among other things…
