Let’s talk about that recurrent daydream you’re having. You know the one–you’ve tied up loose ends, packed your bags and sailed for the horizon. Look closely at the scene in your mind. Notice the boat? Looks a lot like a Roscoe doesn’t it?
This 24' Allegra was hand-built on Orcas Island from 1990 to the mid 2000's. It combines the ease of use and sportiness of a small boat with the finish and amenities of larger yachts.
-Diesel power - economical operation of 0.15 gal/hr
-Teak and holly sole - lots of wood inside
-6' 1" headroom
-Diesel stove, sink, and Icebox (OK, OK, larger boats have refrigerators)
-55 gallon fresh water capacity
Safety: The vessel weighs 6300 lbs and 2400 lbs of that is lead carried 3' below the water. This means the design of the vessel will not allow it to capsize (turn over). There are rocket flares, lifejackets (type I, III, and IV), anchors, radios, redundant bilge pumps, and double lifelines.
Despite the weight, the boat is agile.
this is thanks to the cold molded construction which is both lighter and stronger than fiberglass. She can also carry lots of sail with jib/gennaker selections at 95%, 130%, and 150%.
If you're familiar with Pacific Seacraft, this boat is a cross between the Flicka and the Dana.
