In Festival Boats 2021, Festival Boats 2022

Built in San Diego by the original owner who had been gathering parts as a teenager for several years prior to building. He sailed her for 12 years including to French Polynesia and Hawaii. In 2000 Wendy and Garth started a 34,000-mile Pacific trip and sailed non-stop from Japan back to the PNW seven years later to complete the trip. After taking my parents’ Port Townsend built Perry 62 “Frances Lee” cruising we were looking for a smaller cold molded boat that is easier for two to sail. Tom Wiley has designed several wood boats and I also owned a Wiley Wabbit when we purchased Velella. The design was well-publicized in the early 1980s.
