Description/Condition

SEARENITY (formerly SYRA) is a 32’ auxiliary sloop designed by Bill Tripp, constructed of Honduras Mahogany with bronze fastenings and steam bent oak frames. She is one of only three built in Norway in 1959, transported to the U.S. and given the designation of the Vineland Class.  SEARENITY has been carefully maintained by her current owner, a professional marine carpenter, marine engineer and licensed captain.

 

THE ASKING PRICE HAS BEEN REDUCED BY 40% FOR A LIMITED TIME THIS FALL.  NOW OFFERED WELL BELOW MARKET VALUE AT $17,000.

 

Currently located in Yarmouth, Maine.

 

The design is full keel with cut away fore foot, almost a fin keel, with external lead ballast and long overhangs. The rudder is hung from the stern post. There are bronze supports at the floor timber/ frame joint and bronze straps at the sharpest bend in the frames at the turn of the bilge. Deck beams are overlain with marine plywood, covered with Dynel cloth, and saturated with epoxy. Displacement to is approximately 15,000 lbs.

 

The vessel was rebuilt and extensively refurbished in 1999. The hull was refastened below the water line.  The old screws were removed and replaced with screws one size larger (as opposed to just adding more screws which would have reduced the integrity of the frames and the planking).

 

The interior is sectioned off with marine plywood bulkheads, finished white, which also act as structural reinforcement of the hull, deck and cabin. The inside surface of the hull planking is varnished from the sole to the base of the settees. Thin strips of varnished mahogany are fastened to the frames above the settees to give a comfortable and attractive surface to lean back against. All cushions in the main cabin and V-berth forward were replaced in 1999 and covered with a low-red sunbrella fabric that matches the interior very nicely. The cabinets, lockers, doors and trim are all varnished mahogany, the counter tops are white Formica. The cabin sole is alternate planks of dark teak and light holly, finished bright. The galley includes a top loading refrigerated space cooled by a 12 volt Adler-Barbour refrigeration unit. The galley area also includes a microwave oven, a small Sony TV mounted on a swivel base and a stainless steel sink. Meals are cooked on a grill mounted on the aft rail or on a small, portable stove in the galley. Hot and cold pressurized water is available in the galley and the head and the cabin is heated with forced air heat. The hot water for the sinks and the heater are supplied by the engine’s heat exchanger, when the engine is running, or by a block heater via the same system when plugged into shore power. There are two new stainless steel water tanks mounted below the main cabin settees, filled through fittings mounted on deck. The table, on the port side, is removable to make two bunks in the main cabin.

 

There are several port lights on either side, many recess-mounted halogen lamps and one Force 10 Kerosene lamp mounted on a swivel base.

 

If there were quarter berths they were removed but the result is a large amount of storage space under the cockpit seats, accessed through bright mahogany hatches on deck. A person can climb down in that area to access the inside of the after end of the hull, the rudder tube, fuel tank, etc.

 

The head consists of a fold down stainless steel sink, a mirror, storage locker and manually operated Wilcox Crittenten MSD Type III toilet, with one 15 gallon holding tank. The holding tank is also fitted with a Jabsco 12 volt macerator pump. Forward is the V berth and a hatch fitted with thick, frosted plexiglass. Two port lights also bring light into the forward cabin, as well as one 12 volt incandescent lamp and two halogen lamps. All were new in 1999. T
