Our Boat, your adventure.

Meet S/V Extraordinary! Built in Ketchikan, Alaska, in 1998, this 65' Bruce Roberts-designed steel sailing vessel (that's what S/V stands for) is the perfect platform for your Alaskan sailing vacation. A beamy 17' wide, she has plenty of room inside and topsides to lounge, view wildlife, and just relax in the general splendor of your surroundings.

Topside she has an enclosed dodger area to keep you covered while you watch the world sail by.  Don’t miss out on any wildlife spotting, no matter what the weather.

Plenty of room for everyone topside.

The large windows and the raised salon make the inside living accommodation bright, airy and spacious. The overall square footage in the living spaces is larger than usual and an uncommon luxury for sailing.

When the you've had your fill for the day and are ready to turn in, our guest staterooms are ready to house you comfortably. Eco-friendly bedding and radiant heaters in each room will keep you warm in the cool Alaskan nights. Shelving and under-bed storage will stow your clothing and personal items handily.  The household-sized shower, ocean-friendly toiletries and on-demand hot water will take the worry out of bathing while aboard.

Our galley is the envy of many sailors and the meals emerging from this space attest to that! Fresh baked scones with salmon berries, swedish tea rolls, a perfectly grilled salmon and blueberry sourdough flapjacks are all gastronomic possibilities on your voyage.

This big beauty sailed around North America and came to back to Alaska via the Northwest Passage in 2015.  Her home port now is Seward, Alaska, on the shores of Resurrection Bay. Her steel hull, good displacement and long keel are well-suited for offshore and rugged northern sailing, but her interior systems also provide a layer of safety needed for operating in remote waters.

Twin engines provide extra redundancy, and a 7 Kw Cummins marine generator gives a level of power suited for regular household use. 

She's had a few names over her lifetime;  to pay tribute to her overall size and scope. our unique cruising grounds and to give a nod to the circumstances in which she came to us, we christened her Extraordinary. 

 

She's ready to take you anywhere you'd like to go.

The boat is gorgeous, and well set up for long excursions. There is plenty of room both inside the cabin and on deck to move around, or to find a place to just lay back and soak in the surroundings.
