Skookum Marine has earned a reputation for building tough, long-lasting boats. This boat looks and feels incredibly solid and appears to have been well-cared-for by her owners throughout her life. The current owners have made a number of improvements and modifications to the interior over the last few years. These include renovating the head, updates to the galley, removing carpeting that covered the bulkheads in the cabins and replacing this with tongue-and-groove Douglas fir paneling, addition of storage compartments, replacement of batteries, new water heater, new marine toilet, stereo, and more.
This boat has a history of cruising and serving as a liveaboard for her owners, and it easy to see why. The interior is rich in natural wood and fine joinery, and offers exceptional headroom and beam. While aboard I found it notable that I never felt restricted, cramped, or confined in any space or on deck.
I visited the boat on a sunny summer day, and the cabin felt cool, pleasant, and airy with all of the portlights open. With it so pleasant to be inside on a summer day, I can only imagine how cozy it would feel while at anchor on a dark rainy day with the diesel stove running.
The topsides could use some work – new paint on the decks and varnish on the wood would really spiff up this boat.
I was quite impressed with this Skookum 47 sailboat. Picture yourself aboard: the possibilities for adventure with this boat are only limited by one’s imagination!
