Hudson Force 50 - William Garden Classic
KANWARA 2 is a modified, 1974, Hudson-Force 50 sailboat with a ketch rig from Naval Architect William Garden’s original design. They were re-introduced in fiberglass by Formosa Boat Building Company, circa 1970 who also built the Sea Wolf 41, the Slocum 43, the Spindrift 43 and 46, and Force 50 and 60 models.
Some believe the Force 50 is has more of a seaworthy classic flavor with subtle improvements. Designed as a go anywhere sailboat with a touch of the traditional complete with a bowsprit and ample teak below decks. She’s a respected world cruiser in need of a new owner to finish off some needed work and go sailing! She'll make a fantastic live-aboard with only a few updates.

KANWARA 2 has been completely decked over with white painted fiberglass, and features an in-line electric anchor windlass. The foredeck is spacious and is equipped with updated opening ventilation hatches and a classic butterfly ventilation hatch.
The deck, rig, and cabin structure, have been modified with a raised pilothouse with forward windows and fixed side windows. This is followed by an outside pedestal helm position. The bridge deck is surrounded by a protective combing with easy access to lines and winches. Large primary sheet winches are placed on the after combings separated by a storage compartment with hatch.
She is still rigged as originally designed as a ketch however the main mast is taller than originally designed and set up with triple spreaders. Auxiliary power is provided by an in-board, 4-cylinder, Ford Lehman diesel engine.
Starting at the Bow; a chain locker and sail storage area is forward and separated by a bulkhead. The forepeak area is accessed by a foredeck hatch.
An enclosed marine head is behind the bulkhead with tiled area and opening port lights, tiled shelves, and storage compartments. A full bulkhead with 2-doors gives access to the forward guest cabins to port and starboard with opening port holes, and overhead hatches. Another bulkhead follows with doorways that separates the two forward cabins from the central main saloon. This open and spacious area has a desk arrangement to port, separate settee, and storage shelves. Across the way is another settee. The main salon has a teak cabin sole with hatch giving access to batteries and bilge. A fireplace used to be installed but has since been removed leaving a rock tiled backing in place. A banister 4-step stairwell leads to the pilothouse and galley area. The galley counter has a propane stove, double sink and refrigerator to starboard with a dinette table and small seating arrangement to port.
Heading aft up is the main raised pilothouse, and a stairwell down gives access to the aft master cabin which is set up with an offset double bed, a wardrobe locker, and in suite marine head with shower.
