Polaris is a 39-foot Nauticat sloop with a removable forestay. True to most Nauticats, she has a pilothouse, which means she keeps us warm and comfy enough to sail year-round in Puget Sound. That’s a big reason why we got her.
Unlike most Nauticats, Polaris has a traditional sailboat design and is not a motorsailer. That means we can sail her just fine without running the engine—provided we have wind, of course!
We purchased her in April 2019 with the belief that we had found the right boat to power our dream of sailing to Alaska … and beyond.
