18' 8" Garden Cruising Canoe Yawl


Cruising canoe yawl “Eel”, designed by William Garden. Built in 2000 by Heus and Holder on Cape Cod. She harkens back to the cruising canoe yawls that were so popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. White cedar carvel planking on white oak frames, with white oak backbone. Dynel covered marine plywood decks. All Sitka spruce spars. All silicon bronze fasteners. Canvas-like Oceanus Dacron sails. Sliding gunter mainsail with roller furling jib. Ballast is a 450 lb. exterior lead casting. Two berths below with sitting headroom. No motor or electrical system. Comes with galvanized trailer and sail cover/boom tent. She has been out of water for a couple of years, but she’s still in beautiful condition. $15,000. She is currently in eastern Pennsylvania, but could be delivered on the trailer to most places in the Northeast U.S.
