Further Comments

Haida was designed by Sparkman and Stephens as the S&S 40 (Design #1738), and built in Japan by Far East Yachts in 1965. She has a cutaway keel with attached rudder, long overhangs , and moderate beam. She handles beautifully, with a well-balanced helm in all winds. 

Haida is in very good condition, particularly for a boat that is over 50 years old. She has had extensive repairs over the years, with all work done by professional shipwrights with a view to ensuring Haida's longevity. 

Asking $40,000 OBO. For more information and photos see https://sites.google.com/view/haida/

Haida's hull is double planked mahogany over Japanese oak (Keyaki)frames. Her stem, horntimber and keelson are a rot-resistant tropical hardwood (Yacal). 

Extensive work has been done over the past 25 years. The work was started by Baird Boat Co. and subsequently by Bill Eppick of Skye Boat Works (both in Port Townsend). As built, she had galvanized iron floors; these are now ironbark and bronze. Her original galvanized mast step is now a bronze weldment. Her original steel engine bearers are now bronze. Her ballast is lead and attached to the floors with bronze bolts. Fasteners are copper rivets (thousands of them) connecting the two plank layers, and the planks and frames. Floors and frames are joined by bronze bolts. The deck and cabin top were constructed of mahogany plywood, covered by fiberglass and polyester resin. These have largely been replaced by meranti marine plywood with epoxy and cloth. Bulwark/rail and coamings are Honduras Mahogany.
