YOUR 

VALUES

You could be a retiring or downsizing sailor. Perhaps you are an up-and-coming professional searching for your first yacht. Maybe you simply love classic boats. Either way, you value sustainability or you wouldn't be here on this page.  Wouldn't your lake, river or sound be a classier place with a boat that is in alignment with your values?   

Solar Sal expects be first 100% Solar boat to Alaska

Our Devlin build 27 has been named Wayward Sun and upgraded and outfitted for this journey. We added more solar panels, more electronics, and doubled battery capacity. 

How will we do it?  Captain Alex explains: Solar Boating 101

Please note we will strictly adhere to all of the rules for a transit-through passage and will travel as quickly as possible through Canadian waters without going ashore.  After all, we do not need to stop to refuel!
