Sam designed and built Red Schooner in 1981. Cooper Devlin, Sam’s oldest, found Red Schooner for sale on Craigslist several years ago. He told Lee, Sam’s office person, about it. A labor of love restoration took place over a few years. Since completing the restoration Lee has spent most Sunday’s aboard either having a cup of tea and admiring his boat or going out for a sail.
New sails happened a couple of years back with Sam’s design help and Lee made the foresail self-tending like the jib and main. What’s unique in the 21 foot 11 inch boat (26 feet with bowsprit and rudder) is 2 steering stations – a comfortable interior helm with wheel steering and tiller steering for the cockpit. The interior seats 4 and comfortably sleeps one tall person forward and one shorter person can sleep side to side with a filler piece that joins the port and starboard seats together. The interior has a Porta Potti (never used) forward, a beautiful tiled painting of a clipper ship under full sail, a Fatsco cast iron stove, 2 kerosene lanterns, and a very comfortable captain’s seat in the pilothouse. There is a GPS visible from the cockpit as well as the interior helm. And a depth sounder and compass. The yellow dinghy is easily towed behind, and there’s a small inflatable behind the Captain’s seat for emergencies.
The cockpit is self-bailing and the fuel for the 6HP Yamaha 4 stroke outboard is in a well is under the aft hatch. Each sail needs only one handling line making single-handed sailing easy. There’s a Danforth anchor mounted on the bowsprit for quick dispatch. Price: $28,888.00 (includes dinghy).
