SHEARWATER is a high-efficiency light weight cabin cruiser designed by Bieker Boats in Seattle, launched in 2006. The boat carries a 60-hp Yamaha outboard and weighs a little over 2,000 lbs (907 kg) wet. The hull bottom is okume and sapele plywood and the topsides are 14mm red cedar strip planking. The deck, house and internal structure is foam-cored vacuum bagged carbon composite. The composite parts and hull sheathing is post-cured Pro-Set epoxy. The fine entry and high flared bow means no pounding and a very comfortable ride even in lumpy chop. Top speed is 20 knots, and she cruises very efficiently at 13 knots. Fuel consumption at 13 knots is just over 2g/h (7.6 liters/hr). There is a floodable ballast tank for easier docking and a more comfortable ride at anchor. The cockpit is self-draining and water tight, and the transom is low for easy beach and water access. The cabin is a simple V-berth with lockers and a porta-potti. An LPG stove and fresh water pump are located in the helm seat boxes. Yellow cedar cockpit gratings and a convertible carbon cockpit table make life in the cockpit delightful for meals or sleeping. A light-weight Jester sailing dinghy sits inverted in chocks over the outboard while underway. Shearwater has been a beloved family cruiser for the past decade, regularly travelling over 600 nm per year from Seattle to Desolation Sound and back. $85,000, price includes winter cover, dodger, camper top, side curtains and trailer with new bearings and brakes.
