This historic vessel, currently named PASADO MANANA and built by Wilmington Boat Works, represents the epitome of wooden boat building for military and commercial use. Wilmington Boat Works, a long-time fixture on the Los Angeles waterfront, built destroyers, pursuit boats, sub chasers, patrol boats and tug boats for the navy and the army. These contracts afforded the yard access to the finest of materials and shipwright skills. This boat served as a coastal patrol boat in WW II, designated as Q-109 by the US Army. Historical personages including Herbert Hoover and Winston Churchill were aboard her. It has operated as a research vessel for the USGS in the San Francisco Bay region. This research work, while designated R/V POLARIS, greatly expanded agriculture in the Sacramento River delta and led to the vessel being designated a National Historic Site in the area of Maritime History, Agriculture, Recreation/Entertainment, Science, and Maritime Architecture. Masterful construction and use of the finest materials have kept this 1927 American heritage vessel afloat and operational to this day. An extensive (and costly) 2018 restoration in Port Townsend has secured many more years of longevity while increasing its capabilities for charter operation and liveaboard use. The details of this major refit can be found in our elsewhere in this presentation. The newly constructed aft salon greatly expands the boat’s useful interior space. This would be an ideal living room for charter guests or liveaboard owners. The ship’s layout provides for separated private cabins and common areas and the interior has been refit to provide for seven marine head compartments with showers. A high-capacity hydronic heating system has been installed to provide for reliable, even heat throughout the cabins and interior spaces. The electrical generation capacity is massive with the full electrical system having been upgraded and improved through the 2018 refit. And -- the painstaking work of refastening, caulking, replanking, and structural repairs has already been done! The next owner has the opportunity to customize the interior design to suit his or her requirements -- this is the fun part of any restoration, and will mainly be in the area of cabinetry and fixtures as the plumbing, rewiring, and installation of systems and appliances has been completed. The boat comes with an extensive collection of materials ready for use to finalize the project, and which will underscore her historical character. All classic boats like this one need ongoing cosmetic maintenance. The boat exterior now requires painting and refinishing of some varnished components, as is evident in our photos. But, this is cosmetic work as the structure of the boat has been surveyed as sound and the restoration thoroughly documented. This vessel currently is fully operational. The planned conversion for charter use has been interrupted due to the owner's change of plans and the death of the lead shipwright, resulting in this unique offering. If you have big plans and are seeking to own a classic boat with a truly unique heritage for long-distance voyaging or charter opportunities this one is worth your consideration.
