Description: Tuwamish is a Pacific Northwest icon. She was built for making laps around the Pacific. Much like John Samson did with his family on his C-Strutter. She's been gently cruised up and down the Inside Passage since she was born. The builders lived on her for forty years.

We carry enough food and water for 6 months. We have more books than you could read in a lifetime. We carry more spare parts & tools than most every hardware store in Mexico. We have enough water sports equipment to storm any beach in any surf conditions. All this comes with her.

She sleeps 8 comfortably. And she is tuned right now to the key of 5. One teen, two kids & a set of parents to be exact.

After a 2 year refit, we worked out all the kinks cruising down the West Coast last Fall. This last Winter she took us into the magical Sea of Cortez. And now Spring will be spent in the well earned tropical region around Puerto Vallarta. I say "well earned" because cruising is hard work. And carrying a family out in the open ocean is a lot of responsibility.

"Responsibility is a lot of responsibility, man." -Cheech Marin

I wouldn't be caught out there in a boat that wouldn't properly heave to. Or one that was SO fast that I couldn't get sleep for fear of broaching when it surfed down a real ocean wave. "Pounding to windward," not in this boat. More like sailing I'd call it. A steadiness that has to be experienced.

This boat is more like a home. A magical carpet of a home that could take us anywhere in the world in safety & comfort. It is the only home we have ever owned since our families blended three years ago. It pains us to sell, but our family dynamics have limits on this cruising lifestyle and we must return back to Washington this May. I still have the ability to deliver this fine vessel anywhere in the world, but I invite you to consider starting your voyaging right here in Mexico. You need a good 2-3 years to see everything down here. Some find it so appealing, safe, & convenient to the US that they never leave!
