An ex-Norwegian Fishing Vessel
A Colin Archer design
48' on deck, 17.5' beam, 8' draft
Double-ended Gaff Ketch
Havorn was built in 1936 of 2" long leaf yellow pine planking and sawn 8"x6" frames, doubled and then trunneled together. The backbone structure is white oak. She is a gaff ketch carrying 1650 square feet of sail.
Havorn sleeps nine people, has a large galley, private compartment, and a large salon, that used to carry up to 10 tons of fish. I purchased Havorn in Norway in 1965 from the family who had her built, and I sailed her to the South Pacific, cruising there extensively before sailing her to the Pacific Northwest. She is comfortable and eminently seaworthy, suitable for still more world cruising.
Havorn has her original one-cylinder, 70 HP Wickmann engine, which was built in 1935. The engine was rebuilt in 1966 and is in very good condition for her age.
You can see additional pictures of her here.
