Allied Yachts built the first fiberglass boat to circumnavigate the globe, the original Seawind, a 30' ketch launched in 1962.
In 1975 The Seawind II was born. She is the larger successor of the well known Seawind 30. The designer, Tom Gillmer, was able to lengthen the 30 by 13 inches and add to her beam, thus creating a heavier, more comfortable ride and significantly larger interior with improved accommodations. This is a stout vessel that can be sailed in rough seas but still is sprite enough in light air.
Not only was the Seawind II a significantly larger boat than its predecessor, it was also significantly more expensive. Handmade by American craftsmen on the shores of New York's Hudson River.
Allied produced 130 Seawind II boats between 1975 and 1981. Early Bird is hull number 55.
Early Bird has a ketch rig and is 35' LOA with her bow sprit. The options are endless in how you wish to sail her and what sails you wish to use. Though her interior is original, it is in lovely condition and very clean. She is ready for her next adventure, whether it be sailing the Chesapeake Bay, cruising the Caribbean or for that matter anywhere in the world, the Allied Seawind is a truly capable vessel in any condition.
