A true classic from the design board of famous Boston designer John G Alden, this lovely cruising ketch has been lovingly restored and cared for by her current owner.
This beautiful vessel is now seriously offered for sale.
The classic launch “Seamist” has received a total restoration and now presents in ‘as new’ condition. The hull was stripped including all seams cleaned, refilled and glassed. The deck, cabin sides and top also glassed with topsides professionally painted. The interior was totally remodified with updated equipment and systems. Everything on the vessel is new except the engine, gearbox, shaft and propeller. For ease of handling a bow thruster is also fitted. The engine has only had moderate hours since being reconditioned in 2006. The undercover rebuild was carried out over a three year period and the photos reflect the meticulous work that was completed by the owners.
This Schooner has been fastidiously built by a real shipwright using traditional marine timbers of Kauri, Teak, Iroko, Pohutukawa and Oregon. From the drawing board of Howard Chapelle she has been faithfully created by John Gladden and others. Gaff schooner rig is sensible and easy to use. Sail areas are small and easy to handle. She has a forward pivoted centreboard, operated from above decks. She is powered by a 60hp Nissan and cruises easily at 5-7 knots, with wheel steering with Autohelm to assist. She makes a statement wherever she is anchored and comes with a Mahurangi mooring at Scott’s Landing.
If you love the classic look and want a well looked after vessel call us now.
This is a handsome classic and a very “collectable” launch from a well known American Designer. She has a bright, light interior and a surprisingly modern feel reflecting the new design ideas of the 70’s.
Has a spacious galley/saloon, two heads and a very workable layout for accommodation below.
Her flybridge too is an appealing place to be, with adequate seating and excellent visibility.
Definitely a lifestyle craft!

A beautifully built and maintained vessel, a brigantine with two square sails on the foremast. Built in steel in 1990 by the acclaimed German yard of Lübbe Voss to the highest international and German ship building standards. Designed by Hans P Petersen in traditional style and using modern methods – apart from her masts and spars – she has been maintained impeccably by a master mariner to undertake long offshore cruises in comfort and in style.
Exceptionally well built and maintained with no costs spared in recent refits, to make this boat last. Better than new, as so many items have been improved or added.
Currently in MOSS survey for up to 6 passengers overnight or 10 by day, she has a huge inventory and every system needed for safe and comfortable cruising.
Now reluctantly for sale, with an associated charter business, available separately if required.
