VAGABOND is a true "Lake Union Dreamboat". Of the twenty two built, only three were built to her length (others were 32 ft - 42 ft), and VAGABOND is the largest of the six Dreamboats still sailing in the Pacific Northwest. She was one of the first six founding members of the Classic Yacht Association.
Her hull is Port Orford cedar on bent Oak frames. She was designed by Otis Cutting and built by the Lake Union Drydock & Machinery Company of Seattle in 1929. Originally open, the main cabin was enclosed in 1932. The original Sterling petrol gasoline engine was replaced by the current Detroit Diesel 4-53 in 1973. Also in 1973/74 a swim platform and and ladder were added to the flybridge, which no other Dreamboat has. The galley, head and salon were reworked in 1978. A bow thruster was added in 2014.
VAGABOND is truly a very special lady. She's been a proud member of the six families that have owned her over the years. Her current owners have upgraded many of the systems, including the electrical, new solid teak floors in the salon and the electronics. She is ready for fresh cosmetics and a new set of adventures with her next family.
Will you be the one to bring her into her centennial year?
Boarding VAGABOND is done through either the large side opening door into the salon, or through the back deck into the salon. The main salon has huge openings all around the sides and there is a small side deck to step onto. The aft deck has access to the swimstep and a ladder to the flybridge.
The main salon has the lovely seating area aft. Both sides can be open so that this area feels like a covered sundeck. Chairs and a folding low table make this the place that you'll want to congregate.
Forward of the main salon is the bridge. There are wide seats set up high enough to see above the cabin deck. The controls are to port and everything is within reach of the helm. Controls include some of the original and many modern additions. New electrical panels and instruments make operation of the vessel safe and secure.
To starboard is a wide seat for a passenger or two. The cabin top on this side is large enough to hold a chart, VAGABOND was the champion of predicted log racing in the PNW for many years. From the entry into the cabin near the helm to the aft end of the bench seating aft measures 18L x 8.5W x 75 in tall. The flooring was added by the current owners and complements the warm feeling of classic woodie she is..
Down two steps into the cabin you have a large head with separate shower stall to port. There is a Vaccuflush head, a small sink and the shower forward. This space is very generous for a boat of this size. To starboard is the galley with cabinets on three sides, plenty of storage and a double sink. There is ventilation and the lighting is warm. The Norcold N8431.3 AC/DC fridge with separate freezer is on the port side. There is a three burner propane stove with over and a microwave above.
Forward of the galley there is a large settee to port that pulls out into a double bunk. This sits opposite a curved dinette that seats 4-5 and has tons of storage. There is a wonderful butterfly hatch above this section of the cabin and opening ports in the hull.
Going forward you reach a fore-peak with single berths above chests of drawers. This is the perfect place for little ones to set up camp and make the space their own. These berths are generous enough for adults as well. Ports in the hull once again provide ventilation.
At the very bow is another space for tools and parts with access to the windlass and the hull planking.
Access to the forward deck is through large windows in the bridge or down the side decks. As you can see from the photos, the deck forward is generous for lounging.
Access to the flybridge is from the aft deck up a ladder from the deck aft. This can be access through the large side doors in the salon or the large opening door at the aft end of that cabin. The flybridge only has engine controls and steering equipment, as well as the dinghy and davit arrangement.
