60 ft Custom Bill Garden Design Trawler 1980
"Sayonara" was William Garden's response to the owners' request for a heavy, deep draft, safe vessel patterned after the successful, West Coast commercial halibut fishboat. She is of sister keelson construction with oak ribs, fir planking, gumwood stem, shoe, stern post, horn timber and ring timber. Her engine beds are also gumwood as is the hull sheathing and main rail cap. Her interior is finished throughout in solid teak (no teak plywood anywhere). Her fuel and fresh water supply, together with her refrigeration spaces permit extended cruising without the need for frequent replenishment. Sayonara has cruised British Columbia & Alaska waters since launch in 1980. She has had two owners only and been boathouse kept at all times (61' long x 23' wide boathouse also available for sale to vessel purchaser). She was invited to Expo 86 and won prize for Best Wood Boat in show. Finally, her wonderful Gardner diesel engine provides reliable power for a one hour cruise or all day long. She is silky smooth, trouble free and extremely economical (4.75 gallons per hour or 18 litres per hour at a cruise speed of 8.6 knots!)
