Boat for Sale

OK, this has NOTHING to do with computers!

Neoga II is now for sale.

Neoga II is a 52 foot double headsail sloop launched at Seattle WA in 1941. Designed by Ben Seaborn and built by Blanchard Boatworks for the Pier brothers, also of Seattle, she is a one of a kind beauty from a bygone era.

Norm Blanchard’s book Knee Deep in Shavings devotes a chapter to the Pier brothers and spends several pages talking about Neoga II.

A half hull model can be viewed at the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle, WA.
