Windward Marine, who made Searaker yachts had the plans, but did not build the 34'. There was one 28' and several 50' yachts built. Ketch, sloop, motorsailer.

My father, Harold Stocker owned Windward and hand built the boats.

Sincerely,
Kevin Stocker

I think those were Ed Monk Jr. boats.
Ed Monk Jr. is a skilled designer.
And a very nice guy.

Re: Ed Monk design Windward Yachts Tacoma

Thank you for the clarification. I do have to say I can't confirm the 28' or 34' was a Monk or Monk Jr. design, but the 50' was designed by one of them. The original 50' boat was the Moonraker. I'm not sure when the hull was designed, but my father bought the mold and the Searaker boats were being produced in the mid to late 70s.

Re: Ed Monk design Windward Yachts Tacoma

There was a series of 'Windward' boats built, I think, at Spencer Yachts in Richmond BC.. a 28 and a 30. They both had the distinctive light blue gelcoat and bold sheer striping shown.

The 28 was a John Simpson design,



The 30 a 1970 Carlson design that was resurrected in the mid 80s.. It was odd because it seemed a very dated shape for a new '80s boat (which it was, of course)



Just posting this to avoid any confusion over which 'windward' was being discussed.. neither of these two, it seems.

The Spencer yard also produced the Sun 27/838/Sunstar28, which, IIRC, have been credited to both Bob and Edwin Jr, perhaps jointly?
