Ideal for one or a couple to travel and live on.

Halcyon has yacht quality woodwork interior throughout and a pristine wood hull with bright work trim, but she has spent her time in the Northwest parked in open moorage; no boathouse and minimal covers, she requires just basic maintenance.

She is in pristine condition since a complete restoration in 1992 that took over 8 years.

There are many special details, like bronze portholes for ventilation, antique telescopes and Navy Officer’s china.

She is meant to be used, can take rough water but has beauty &comfort.

Halcyon gets attention wherever she goes.

The centerpiece of the galley is the Dickinson diesel fired range.

Stainless steel deep galley sinks and lots of detailed wood finish creates a warm and stunning ambience.
