The topsides are painted with Awlgrip, the exterior of the hull is gelcoat. The cockpit deck and swim platform are of teak construction.

The aft deck is fully-enclosed with removable Barrette Enclosures' polyvinyl panels (new in 2018). These panels expand the living area, and allow the aft deck to be used in increment weather or as a dining area on nice evenings. The panels are designed to be quickly opened, if desired, and are held open by clips on the stainless structure of the bimini top covering the aft deck. The aft deck is of teak construction, with numerous hatches for access to the engine room. Two chest freezers are installed on the aft end of the cockpit. Side decks lead forward, and a transom door leads to the swim platform.

Enter the interior through a companionway door and the salon spreads out before you. This is an open and well lit space. A settee to port looks to provide comfortable seating for six (the settee also converts into a double berth). Two freestanding chairs provide for relaxing seating that isn't built-in. An entertainment cabinet to starboard can be configured to hold a TV, but is currently used for storage.

The galley is laid out with a substantial amount of counter space and drawers and cabinets, as you would expect for a vessel of this size. The counter tops have fiddles and the drawers and cabinets are equipped with sea locks. The galley is equipped with two refrigerators (one new in 2021), Princess propane cooktop / range with overhead exhaust fan, and microwave oven, and a single basin stainless steel sink. Opening windows to the port and starboard side of the galley provide ventilation while cooking.

A set of stairs lead forward from the salon / galley. Staterooms are located down a passageway below. The guest stateroom is located to port and features two bunks (queen lower, single upper) and a hanging locker. The guest berths, like all berths aboard, are furnished with bedding. Opposite the guest stateroom is a guest head, equipped with a Dometic vacuflush toilet and a wash basin.

The master stateroom lies at the forward end of the passageway and has a walkaround queen bed, hanging locker, and drawers. An overhead hatch and portlights provide good lighting. The master head has a Dometic vacuflush toilet, wash basin, and separate shower compartment.

The pilothouse is located up the steps from the salon / galley. It's bright tidy layout and large size make this feel like the bridge of a much larger vessel. A bench aft of the helm station seats several comfortably, including the captain through the use of an autopilot remote. The bench also serves as a single berth. Forward of the bench is a chart table that runs the length of the bench and also serves as a work surface or dining table. Electronics are modern and were updated during the 2007-2008 refit. Pilothouse doors provide access to the side decks for access to the foredeck or flybridge, or can be opened for ventilation.

The foredecks and side decks are painted with gray non-skid paint. A bench on the foredeck provides seating, and storage underneath. A life raft is mounted between this bench and the windlass. The windlass was replaced in 2007-2008.

The flybridge is accessed via ladder located on the port side deck. The aft end of the flybridge is used for tender storage, including one 12 ft aluminum skiff and two kayaks. These are deployed and recovered with a Nick Jackson 1200 # davit crane. The mast is designed to easily fold down for boathouse storage or to facilitate bridge clearance. A second steering station is located on the flybridge with bench seating facing forward, port, and starboard.

Heating is provided by a Hurricane II diesel fired Hydronic heating system which provides cabin heat and heats domestic water.

Broker's Comments

8 VIRTUAL TOURS - 1 VIDEO - 129 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL!

Life aboard this Willard would be a pleasure, whether cruising or at the dock!

This extraordinary vessel has evidently been very well cared for by her owners of the last fourteen years, who stored her in a boathouse in Juneau. The vessel underwent an extensive refit in 2007-2008, followed by a re-power in 2014 - both at the Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op (PTSC). She just completed another extensive yard period at the PTSC, and appears in top-notch condition inside and out.

Willards are known for their robust construction and sought out for this feature. The solid FRP hull construction on this boat is 1.5" thick! Although the hull and deck were built in 1967, virtually everything else aboard has been replaced in recent years. The 315 hp Cummins engines (twins, for redundancy and maneuverability) on this boat have only ~1200 hours. The mechanical systems, like all other systems, are meticulously maintained - and annual oil samples are taken for analysis, with any findings promptly addressed.

Fourteen years of love, care, unsparing maintenance and thoughtful upgrades by experienced PNW cruisers mean that this Willard is optimized and well-equipped for safe, comfortable cruising. This vessel has travelled the inside passage four times under her current owners, and she is truly ready to go to Alaska, or most any other destination, today.

These boat details are subject to contract.
