  PCC, Hull #1 EULALIE

This is PCC hull #1, EULALIE. She is in Salt Lake City. Her owner died suddenly in March 2004. She needs a new owner immediately.

EULALIE was moved to Salt Lake City by her owner two years ago. She is completely dried out.
This is an understatement. You have never seen an ocean going boat so dry!!
She is absolutely ready for a serious renovation.

Every seam has opened up. Reefing will be no problem.

Although paint/non-skid is peeling off the decks and deck fabric appear ok.

Although paint/non-skid is peeling off the decks and deck fabric appear ok.

Although paint/non-skid is peeling off the decks and deck fabric appear ok.

There appears to be very little rot. Where it does appear it seems easily addressed.

The interior is intact except for the drawers. They were stolen along with their contents when the boat was broken into shortly after she arrived in Salt Lake. The items taken appear to have been personal rather than boat equipment. Some of the electronics were taken such as the radio and GPS screen.

She has a 3 cyl. BETA diesel.

The dryness has caused all seams to open up, including the seams at the floors and ribs. A cursory examination revealed that floors and ribs seem to be in good shape and rot free. A closer examination would be necessary in order to say this with certainty.

The paint on all exterior surfaces is peeling and appears easily removed.

This is a photo showing the forward junction between the ballast keel and keelson.

The owner built a cradle for her. It is 10’ 6" wide and about 20+ feet long.

Hull very sound. Mast recently re-finished. Topsides and below waterline freshly painted. Engine purrs. Currently receiving TLC, but skipper has too many projects.

As of the first week of August the work on Hare Maru continues. She now has beautiful varnish on her cabin sides and toe rail, fresh paint on her deck and cabin top, and seating in her cockpit! We took her to Catalina on 8/5 & 6. She made the crossing to the Isthmus from the LA Harbor breakwater in 3.5 hours! With a little sail trimming we could have been even faster, but she practically sailed herself as it was!!

Aetos is a nicely maintained example of the Kettenburg PCC. ALthough she has not been raced in the past 25+ years, she still moves with the grace and speed these boats are known for. Those familiar with San Diego-built Kettenburgs will want to see hull #19. She awaits new owners who will appreciate the custom woodworking and inlays lovingly added by her talented owners.

Please click here for complete specs on this beautiful boat!

A lot of work has been done on this boat and it would be a good project for someone to finish. The boat is located in Wilmington CA which is in the Los Angeles Harbor.

 PCC #16

In the two years that I have owned her I have rebuilt the mast and boom and installed all new rigging. I replaced the top of the stem post and rebuilt the coaming and caprails at the bow. I have bought sails for her (two mains, two jibs and a spinnaker, all secondhand). Installed a secondhand Westerbeke 21 horsepower diesel engine, installed a two burner and oven propane stove, installed a propane cabin heater, had all new cushions made. Installed a propane locker with two propane tanks, rewired and installed all new 12 volt and 120 volt lighting systems. Painted topsides, bottom and decks, redid all of the varnish work (it needs doing again), installed a partial teak and holly cabin sole. She comes with a 9'-0" long inflatable dinghy and has three sets of ground tackle. 45# plough and two danforth types of about 35# each, two lengths of chain about 90 feet each and a 300 foot anchor rode as well as numerous other lengths of rode.

The boat has been sailing since the autumn of 2000 and recently won the sloops and cutters A class of the One More Time Regatta in Marina Del Rey. I have lived aboard since I bought the boat.

The boat is sound and does not leak at anchor and only slightly when she is sailed hard. The previous owner refastened the boat approximately 10 years ago and at that time the bottom was epoxied. She still needs some cosmetic work but is sound and sailing.

Contact: David at Email or (310) 346-9398


 PC # 59 is coming into town on April 18th or 19th. She will be off loaded at Koehler's. I have only seen photos, but the owner told me that she is in the water and sailing. She has never been epoxied and needs bright work. Mast and spars (I am told) are fine. I am told she does not leak a lot and that the spars are good, however remember, I have not seen the boat. The owner has had her in Tacoma for the last 15 years.

The cost of this boat will be in the neighborhood of $8K. Which comes from the cost of the boat, the delivery and off load. If I can believe the owner, it is an opportunity to get into a PC with spars and sails for under $10K. I say $10K, as I suspect any new owner will want a fresh coat of bottom paint and the bright work done, but the owner tells me they are cosmetics at this point and the boat sails fine. It is an opportunity to sail immediately and then decide whether on not you want to put more money into upgrading the boat over time.

In the PC world, seems you can buy one in rough shape for $8-12K, a non epoxied (but fresh paint/bright work) boat for ~$10-14K? and a fine restored boat for $40-50K?. A lot of the cost depends on what you are willing to do yourself. I.E. paying Koehler a few bucks for lay days and getting all your friends to help do the bottom paint will save you money right off the top. Doing your own bright work will do the same. It just depends how much money you want to spend..but this is the only opportunity I know of to get into a sailing PC right away.

Hope this info is of interest.

She is hull #27, VILA IV now called BREATH, commissioned in 1960 and launched early in 1961. I have lived aboard her for the last 4 years while I restored her and would have stuck it out and finished the resoration if for no other reason than I love this boat! But I am getting married in July and my future wife and I are getting a house, so we are selling her.

I may be able to have her trucked to her future owner, and I will consider any offer.

Steve Dexter
Steve, through Cays Yacht Sales, Shelter Island Drive, San Diego, will now offer this boat for sale. The proceeds less his commission will go to Childrens Hospital. If you are interested in owning the boat, or if any of your friends who appreciate the K-38 are interested, have them contact Steve ASAP. These boat gifts don't last long. Mine will sell with a brand new full cover, and nine sails. It has new bottom anti-fouling paint done in December.

All the varnish work is bright and in good condition. The cabin and cockpit cushions are like new, cream colored with red piping trim, very pretty. The boat sails like an angel.

The boat has both fore and aft stainless steel pulpits, three spinnakers, and spinnaker poles. There is a large Danforth S-22 anchor with chain and more than 200 feet of nylon anchor line. It is equipped with a new VHS radio telephone, a new natural gas two burner galley, a forty gallon monel water tank, a portable battery powered stereo AM/FM radio with tape deck, and two hi fi speakers mounted in a varnished mahogany rack on the cabin bulkhead, (can be removed and taken ashore for parties. The type one head is legal and working. There is a new hand flush-pump aboard I purchase but didn't have time to install, which can be easily inserted to make the head "like new."

The compass is an excellent one, made in Norway. There is a depth sounder with an anchor alarm. The boat has been completely rewired with a new fuse and switch box located on the inside bulkhead easily accessed from the cockpit, but out of the spray.

The engine is a new Gray Marine 25 hp Sea Scout four cylinder gasoline engine I had installed in San Francisco. It starts and runs reliably but should be given a tune-up and the water cooled exhaust manifold inspected and repaired if needed.There are a lot of new engine parts, like spark plugs, a new fuel filter, points, condensers, engine gear box seals, and etc. in the starboard cabin locker. There are several zincs for use when the current zinc is exhausted.

The mainsail has a boom cover in place, under the full cover.

We purchased the boat in 1965. We are the third owners.She is currently in drystorage at our Kettenburg facility. She needs caulking, painting and exterior varnish. The original GrayMarine engine has been removed. There is a refurbished Atomic Four in our engine shop, ready for installation.The boat has a good sail inventory. She has the so called cruising interior, with two quarter berths and the galley down the starboard side. The interior is in very good condition. We have kept it as close to original as possible.We are looking for a knowledgeable buyer. The price will include two months work space, crane service and other yard services for free.This is a good deal, but I will be screening prospective purchasers.

Now named Kittiwake this boat has quite a history - as Ballerina she won the Lipton Cup in 1951.

She has been fully overhauled twice. First time was around 1980 then again in 2001, when I had her hauled out for 10 weeks, stripped the hull to bare wood, repacked, caulked and refastened 30% of the Port Orford cedar planking (completely rot free). Previous owners had sistered all ribs in the mid section with steamed oak. Mast: overhauled 2002, all standing rigging is in good shape. 12 sails - 2 mains, plus storm main & jib, 2 spinnakers, and a variety of genoas and jibs (various ages, but all useable.) Electrical systems are in good order. Engine: February 2005 rebuilt the original Farymann diesel engine (yes - parts are still readily available). Gearbox also rebuilt with new bearings.

Still some cosmetic work to be done, bringing the mahogany back to its warm glow, and updating fixtures, (still has the original Primus stove and ice chest!)

Nothing basically changed since she was built a pure classic boat.

I am asking $30,000. (Surveyed and Appraised at $47,000 in 2001.)

I feel that I have just been a caretaker for the boat and would like to think she will go home to San Diego to the lighter breezes for which she was designed.

Berthed in Berkeley Marina
