Description: The Willard 8 Ton sailboat was originally based upon the Willard 30 Trawler. William Crealock was the designer charged with making the adaptations for the sailboat version. He designed the Willard 8 Ton as a blue water yacht for long distance cruising. Crealock went on to design the Pacific Seacraft line.

This 1975 Willard 8 Ton has been used as a sloop most recently with a furling genoa. All of the components including the staysail are available to convert the rig back to a cutter should the new owner wish. The boat features a long, full keel and draws 48. Displacement is 17,000 pounds; ballast is 6500 pounds. The beam is 106. Length on deck is 30. Spar length is 35.
Auxiliary power is provided by a Perkins 4-108 diesel providing 45 HP. The engine was overhauled in 2005.

Equipment: The interior of the boat features a v-berth, head on starboard, lockers opposite, main salon, U-settee w/dining table on starboard, settee/ berth on port, galley and navigation area aft. The galley includes a propane three-burner stove with oven, an ice box and a Whale foot galley pimp for water.

Electronics include an Icom IC-M402S VHF Radio; a Garmin GPS MAP 740S and Furuno GP-32 GPS/WAAS Navigator; a Garmin GMR18HD Radar; and Raymarine ST6002 Smart Pilot (Autopilot).

The head includes a Jabsco manual toilet with a 6 gallon PVC holding tank. Discharge systems meet Coast Guard regulations.

A number of renovations have been made to this sailboat in 2019. The original factory deck gelcoat was removed and then the deck was painted with awlgrip (Cloud White and Whisper Grey non-griptex). The interior headliners were either removed or recovered. The engine was serviced, a new battery charger was installed, and three new Group 32 AGM batteries were installed. The bottom was taken down to bare fiberglass, a barrier coat applied and then two coats of bottom coat were applied. This boat looks great!
This is a solid well-designed and well-built cruiser that has an established reputation for sea worthiness in adverse conditions. As the saying goes: They dont build them like this anymore.
