A VERY SPECIAL CLASSIC STAYSAIL SCHOONER IS FOR SALE
This site was created by the owner to promote the sale of Suva.
.Suva was designed by the famed Ted Geary as a gaff rigged schooner to be suited for the Pacific Northwest and Canadian waters as a yacht for corporate and private entertaining by the owner Frank Pratt of Pratt and Whitney Engines.
Suva was built in Hong Kong in 1925 then shipped to Victoria BC, then to the owner's waterfront on Penn Cove, Coupeville, Washington(Whidbey Island).
In 1960 her rig was redrawn to a staysail schooner by another noteable architect, Ben Seaborne. In the same year her main engine was replaced with a 453 Detroit Diesel, currently showing less than 4k hours.
In 2007 she was refit including recaulking her hull and deck, replacing her bowsprit and boomkin in purpleheart, replacing some standing rigging and rebuilding her masts. New sails include main, fore staysail, jib and genoa.
