PASSAGE -  JUST REDUCED TO $ 99,000

In 1964 a collaboration between K. Aage Nielsen, Paul Luke and William Drake (owner) began the life GOLDEN HIND ( Passage). She was the fourth in the No. 324 series designed by Nielsen, 324D.

The correspondence in the design process between these three gentlemen is worth a novel.This original correspondence and documentation has been carefully preserved and will go to the new owner of Passage. Mr. Drake was 6’ 5’’ and hence bunks were all extended, the cabin roof raised in the galley and a special child proof liquor cabinet built in, still with it’s original key and string. The combination of a fixed keel combined with a fully retractable cast bronze center board, gives her a 9’ 8’’ draft to windward, which she does well and with ease. And there is much more. She was built in the Luke Yard in East Boothbay to their legendary standards and still sports all the original Luke foundry touches, including ports, feathering prop, cleats, spinnaker pole, whisker pole, pedestal and more.

Remarkably , in 50 years since her 1966 launch she has had only three loving owners and remains essentially “original” while having been in the continuous  meticulous care over the last 30+ years in the hands of the world class Rockport Marine yard . As in the title to the recent K. Aege Nielsen book, she is truly “Worthy of the Sea”.

In that book,  Maynard Bray and Tom Jackson write in Chapter Six, “A parallel Evolution: The Racing Sloops” , regarding the 324 series “ Five boats were built ..all but one sloops. The choice of rigs reflected keen racing interests of these owners…low profile..nothing to impede visibility. ..it’s cross section gave the boat a boost to windward close hauled and as additional ballast as the wind piped up.”

Passage sports an autopilot, essentially new sails - main and jib,recent new shaft, cutlass bearings, bottom fully stripped and repainted this past winter all by and to Rockport Marine standards. A recent survey by Giffy Fuller is available.
