Aboard The BOB

Tour the BOB – Sailboat Charter Alaska

Sailing Vessel BOB is a wing-keeled 1993 Catalina/Morgan 50 which started its sailboat charter career in the British Virgin Islands out of Tortola. In 1999 the boat underwent a complete factory refurbishment for Alaskan cruising before being re-launched on the West Coast. In 2016-17, the boat was overhauled again with a new engine, rigging, sails, electronics, toilets, etc.

The most common comment we hear is about how roomy and light the boat is. BOB is perfectly built for a group of six with lots of headroom and a remarkable enclosed cockpit we jokingly call the solarium with 360 degree views in all weather.

BOB is professionally maintained, and in excellent shape. We are fully licensed and insured and carry full protection for liability, pollution, etc.

The vessel is in excellent condition – with mechanical, hull and rigging inspected and maintained by the captain and professionals when needed. BOB had a refit in 2016-17 with new engine, batteries, hull repair, bottom work, new electronics including Radar, AIS, EPIRB, GPS, Sonar, new sails, rigging inspection, etc.

The vessel is current with USCG 5-Star Safety certification, and meets or exceeds all requirements for operating in Alaskan in-shore and near-shore waters.

The BOB has all equipment needed for the safe and comfortable operation of a sailboat in northern waters. We take great pride that Sailboat BOB meets or exceeds all U.S. Coast Guard safety, licensing and permitting requirements.
