Built of cold-molded construction in 1988 by the famed Van Dam Yard in MI, "Patrician" is one of the most magnificent day sailers ever built. The vessel centers around its giant cockpit, providing ample space for guests and non-sailors with the helm aft within easy reach of the power winch sail controls. The gleaming, varnished mahogany and wide teak decks are accented by oversized polished stainless steel hardware. Extremely easy to handle by virtue of well placed powered winches, and twin screw propulsion when motoring. This modern classic is the perfect aesthetic blend of tradition with modern concepts. Below there is a head, galley area, full nav station with chart table and two large berths forward. Powered access hatches enable unencumbered access to the twin W46 Westerbeke engines. Beautifully maintained, this vessel is one of a kind and virtually turnkey ready for a Summer of enjoyment.
The layout of this Henry A. Scheel designed daysailer is centered upon the spacious cockpit area containing a cushioned lounge area, cushioned seating area, and large magnificent centerline teak table. This arrangement is perfect for entertaining family, friends, or colleagues while underway; regardless of their sailing ability. The mahogany brightwork, polished stainless steel deck fittings and hardware and teak deck provide a rich environment reminiscent of days gone by. The aft end of the cockpit is devoted to vessel controls and helm. Modern systems make this vessel truly convenient and easy to maneuver by only one or two people.
Below, the interior of the vessel hull, frames and structures are varnished to a magnificent finish which serves to show off both the incredible craftsmanship, as well as the overbuilt perfection of the hull construction itself.
Hull is cold-molded with (4) layers of 3/8" mahogany saturated in West System epoxy and then sheathed with (2) layers of 6 oz fiberglass cloth set with West System epoxy resin. The exterior finish is Awl-grip. Frames and keelson are laminated mahogany. The deck is thick teak laid over mahogany plywood. Coamings and all trim are perfectly executed mahogany joinerwork finished in varnish.
Note the original "Scheel Keel" was replaced by the 2nd Owner in order to improve upwind performance. This current keel is 18" deeper than the original, and was designed by the Sparkman and Stephens firm and cast by Mars Metal.

The twin W46 Westerbeke Diesel engines are set on soft mounts, and connected to Aqua Drives to reduce vibration. Oversized 1 3/8' stainless prop shafts go through dripless Lasdrop shaft seals, and turn (2) 20" three blade feathering Maxprops.
