STARBOUND is a 46′ custom ketch and modern, expanded version of Joshua Slocum’s famous world traveling vessel SPRAY.

In 1950, she was originally built for the technical editor of Rudder Magazine. She was subsequently sold to Burl Ives, a widely loved American folk and sea shanty singer. In the early 1970’s, under the new ownership, Gordon and Nina Stuermer began the first of her two circumnavigations of the globe.

In the late 1990’s she was completely rebuilt with expanded accommodations; and then, in 2008, she was upgraded throughout, with new furnishings, rigging, a new diesel engine, as well as complete up to date navigation and safety equipment. Her design expansion created an extraordinarily roomy and comfortable little ship (although we are not sure that Captain Slocum would have approved of all of her modern comforts.)

STARBOUND boasts a spacious galley and main settee for meals and entertaining, and an even more spacious protected cockpit and deck. Her comfortable layout can accommodate large groups, with nine berths in four private cabins.
