The Swallow is a custom designed and built Pocket Cruiser sailboat. She was built using unique custom quality imported and local woods and with high quality craftsmanship. Her hull is strip planked red cedar covered with epoxy resin fiberglass cloth, with bronze fastenings and lead ballast. Beams and framing are made of laminated mahogany, and decking is made of red cedar with fiberglass overlay and non-skid paint.
Interior is made from maple, hawthorn, Port Orford cedar and several kinds of mahogany. Cabin lights are LED and VDC wiring and is ABYC approved. Includes a solar battery charger for longer distance cruising. Cabin has lots of storage space, a port side galley and a starboard settee. Plenty of head space and is comfortable and cozy for cruising. Will sleep 3 with 2 quarter bunks and the settee. Open cockpit has tiller steering and bench seating.
The Swallow has sailed throughout the entire Puget Sound area since 2005, including the San Juan Islands, the Canadian Gulf Islands, Nanaimo to Desolation Sound, and from Victoria to Banfield along the southwest side of Vancouver Island. She has taken us to so many beautiful places we would not have otherwise seen. She has been well maintained and has proven to be very seaworthy and reliable along the way. Some adventures have been a challenge for a vessel this size, but a standing joke with her owners is that she will take you anywhere you have the nerve to go! Surveys from both 2005 and 2017 available. Extensive equipment list.
