Fresh Water - One of A Kind Sailboat - Seabreeze
Cell: (920) 421-0397
The keel- and- centerboard hull, of which Finisterre was an inspired prototype, has revolutionized the design of the modern offshore racing yacht. Seabreeze was a highly refined example of the type. MacLear and Harris have incorporated in her design the lessons learned from years of observation of sea-going center boarders. Sea breeze has a 4,000-pound lead keel to give her great stiffness with moderate draft. Her centerboard nestles within the keel, to reduce wetted surface and increase speed off the wind. She has a fine entrance, a clean run, and a long keel for easy steering in a following sea. Below decks the Seabreeze's generous beam and fiberglass construction. She has six berths without the abomination of uppers; a large galley; a realistic chart table; a profusion of lockers, drawers, and bins; and a fine feeling of spaciousness everywhere.
Hull one-piece fiberglass-reinforced plastic with an integrally molded centerboard trunk. Hull is both longitudinally and transversely reinforced. The one-piece insulated deck, trunk cabin and cockpit are of specially engineered sandwich construction to insure highest strength and stiffness with least weight. The non-skid is molded flush , to minimize wear and chipping. The 4,000 lb. lead ballast keel is glassed securely inside the hull.
A complete headliner gives a smooth, clean interior overhead, and there are no exposed fiberglass surfaces to detract from the below-decks shipshape appearance enhanced by natural teak. Main and forward stateroom bunks are 6'3" with 4"thick mattresses. Four wide extension transoms pull out to make two additional 6'6" berths. Easily accessible storage areas are provided under main cabin bunks. Headroom 6' in main cabin and 6' in toilet area and forward stateroom, with 10 sq. ft. of galley counter and work area excluding stove and SS sink; 100 lb. ice box with 8 cu. ft. of storage capacity, toilet room with sink, laundry hamper, linen and medicine storage, mirror and light, three opening ports with screens, and two 4" dorade ventilators opening into main cabin and toilet room-all make for comfortable living below.
