Lindy was built as a Motor Fishing Vessel in England in 1944. She was converted to a Sailing Vessel 30 years ago. Kit Africa designed the Ketch Sailing Rig and the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building and Northwest Sails, in Port Townsend, made the Sails, Main Mast, Booms and Rigged the boat in 2000 and her rig was updated in 2010 (New Sails, New Main Mast, Re-Finish Mizzen Mast, New Standing and Running Rigging). Lindy has been excellently maintained and upgraded throughout her life, securing her future afloat. She is ready for her next adventurers!

She was initially built for the war effort in England, however, the war ended prior to her launch. She was sold in to private use and fished for many years. After around 1990, when she was converted to a Motor Sailing Vessel she sailed across the Atlantic and was moored in Florida. The current owner purchased her there in 1998 and took the boat to Honduras to rebuild her. The top 3’ of Planking, Stanchions, Deck Beams forward of the Wheelhouse, Bulwarks and Decks were replaced. Then they headed for Alaska. Over the past 20 years she has sailed extensively in Alaska and been continually upgraded! The vessel is currently used as a support vessel for remote Alaskan villages for the owner’s electrical company.
Lindy has a MARAD Exemption so the vessel can Charter in Alaska with up to 12 passengers. The Exemption could be expanded to other areas.
