KITTIWAKE was conceived by a career mariner and engineer who brought to the project much of what he learned while commanding ships worldwide.Construction was by Washburn & Doughty Associates in Maine, a shipyard recognized for building high quality, specialized workboats in steel and aluminum. Comfort at sea and ease of maintenance were of significant importance.KITTIWAKE might be best described as a small ship that can cruise in comfort and safety to any latitude and can be maintained by an owner operator.KITTIWAKE is a very well-designed platform for exploring the world.She is large enough for a family that wants to cruise with all of today’s requisite toys and tenders, yet small enough for an owner-operator. With her steel hull, 6,000-mile range and an HVAC system that will handle any climate, exploring all of the planet is possible.There is built-in redundancy for allmajor systems and a spares inventory that assures a high degree of independence. The boat deck will accommodate large tenders and other small craft.As a true explorer yacht, she would be just as comfortable transiting the Northwest Passage as she would be in the South Pacific.

The arrangement plan includes three staterooms on the lower deck, each with head and shower.Galley and main saloon occupy the main deck and the pilothouse with day head is on the upper deck.Headroom is in excess of 7 feet throughout . Finish is “Herreshoff style” with white panels and teak trim.

KITTIWAKE is a rare offering, a US built, steel / aluminum expedition vessel with 6,000 mile range. She has very little in common with single-engine fiberglass yachts that purport to be world cruisers. Her righting moment with 2/3 load is superior that of most white yachts (tables available). Full redundancy has been engineered into virtually every system aboard from navigation and lighting to plumbing and propulsion. Her maintenance and record keeping has been scrupulous. It is often claimed in the promotion of an expedition vessel that she “could depart tomorrow…” and it is often an exaggeration. In the case of KITTIWAKE, it is unquestionable.KITTIWAKE must be seen to be appreciated.

KITTIWAKE was built by Washburn & Doughty Associates, a respected Maine shipyard that has been building commercial vessels of the highest quality for 40+ years. Her first and only owner is a master mariner who has spent decades commanding ships and instructing naval officers in navigation and bridge protocols.She was built in excess of ABS scantlings with the anticipation of operating in ice prone waters.
After a lifetime at sea as a professional shipmaster I wanted to acquire a passage making trawler type vessel to explore parts of the world cargo ships and tankers wouldn't take me. I looked first at Nordhavens, but as handsome as they were I found too much lacking for my objectives and goals. Hence I designed KITTIWAKE and had her built at an outstanding builder of sturdy commercial vessels in Maine. Listed below are some of the features I felt were essential.1) Able to be operated without paid crew, a steaming range in excess of 6000 miles. She achieves this running her Caterpillar "A" rated, 450 hp engine at 1300 RPM (38% load) delivering 8.0 knots (STW) at 7.2 gph with 10%+ reserve fuel. Six, narrow F.O. tanks totaling 6500 gallons (US) fuel are installed amidships against the vessels outer shell plate, placing its weight outboard to give her a gentle rolling period and reduce free surface impact on stability.2) Bunkering is achieved safely and rapidly at up to 100 gpm with no risk of spill by one person on deck at the fill manifold. The two smallest tanks are dedicated Day Tanks. These are replenished from the 4 larger tanks via a 6 gpm transfer/filtering system. Tanks may be gauged to +/- 1 gallon.3) Vessel was constructed to heavier standards than normal for her size. The hull is 5/16" steel plate and deck houses are aluminum. Extreme stability, comfortable, long rolling period and very low engine noise level were principal features in her design. Divided into 5 watertight compartments, she is a superb sea boat, very maneuverable with fast oversize rudder and with maneuvering stations in the pilothouse and both bridge wings.4) Priority was given to her engine room and lazarette. Ease of access to all equipment and redundancy of operating systems. A 17 KW generator serves 90% of her electric needs when at anchor and needs to operate for no more than 4 hours a day, a large 24 DCV battery bank and 4 KW inverter providing the balance. A 35 KW generator can meet rare, extreme electric loads but also drives a large hydraulic system for powering a powerful bow thruster and a "come home" drive in the event of main engine failure. An oil fired circulating hot water heating system via 4 zones provides ample heat throughout the vessel. The lazarette, a watertight compartment, contains a heavy duty steering system with three backups. The space also serves as storage for damage control supplies and thoroughly indexed containers of spares. Throughout both spaces provide well lighted, easy access.5) The bridge is designed for serious navigation, comprehensively outfitted, well heated or AC cooled, heated windows, 5 drawer chart table, a berth and head.6) Living spaces consist of a large salon and large well equipped galley, well lit. Below deck three cabins, master and guest with queen berths and forward cabin with two single berths and two roll out pipe berths. All cabins have their own head and showers. Vessel provides a large FW supply in two tanks (1786 g), a 250 gallon black water tank with2 Sealand "M" type vacuum pumps, Sealand discharge pump and a 20 g gray water tank w/2 discharge pumps. AC and heat is delivered to all living spaces. Extensive storage and closets provide stocking for extended passages.7) A utility room adjacent to the engine room has a large work bench, bulkhead mounted tools, a Sears tool chest, a comprehensive tool supply. In addition to the 22 cu.ft. reefer/freezer in the galley is a 21 cu.ft. reefer/freezer and a 10 cu.ft. freezer in the space. All appliances, heat and lighting can operate off the 4 KW inverter, a generator being required only 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening for battery charging.8) Apart from the generators and large "house bank" of batteries, each engine and all navigation gear has its own starting and service battery bank. All batteries are charged via the inverter and two ferro-resonant battery chargers when outside source of 240 VAC is available. Underway all batteries are charged via the 24VDC 160 amp alternator. KITTIWAKE has met all of my objectives and I have had the privilege of being her steward since her launching.
