Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

I'll see what I can do. Our HIN (hull identification number) is on the transom, upper starboard side visible from the outside of the boat.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Hi guys. I see that Manu Tara is still for sale and has been since at least Jan 2013. Does anyone know anything about her or how to contact the owners? Also, do you know if the Fraser 41 in Gun Bay is still for sale? I'm looking for a boat to sail around the world, possibly singlehanding, and this one seems an excellent candidate. Thanks!

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

We were in Garden Bay last month and saw the Fraser at the entrance to Gun Boat Bay, but we didn't go over this year to see if there was still a for sale sign on it. Aire DeKleer's boat, Omega is also for sale with a large sail inventory.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Thanks, Ray! Any idea how to get ahold of Aire? I couldn't find the boat with a quick internet search.

Best,
Patti

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Saw this Fraser 41 leaving Pt. Roberts a couple days ago:


Then this rare Fraser 41 center cockpit. The owner is the second owner. IIRC, he said the it was built in 1972. That's an older boat.


We came across this Fraser 41 at Jones Island a few years ago:


and this one in Bedwell Harbor with the modified windows and the deck lifted a couple inches over standard to give a little more headroom down below:

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Hi Ray,

Having recently added the Frasier 41 to my potential boat buying list, I've really appreciated going through the information that you've provided in this thread. As it isn't a boat that's easy to get information on I'm wondering if I might ask a few questions?

Is the hull cored or solid? Is the deck cored or solid?
Is the mast keel or deck stepped?
Are the chainplates glassed in or fairly accessible?
I've seen claimed displacements on the 41 ranging from 19000 to 26000. Do the varying interiors account for most of that?
What are the things to look out for when shopping for one (or owning one for that matter)?
What is Aire DeKleer asking for his? Is there a listing with pics available somewhere?

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

-Odin

The hull is solid and they were laid up thick by today's standards. The deck is cored with balsa in some areas, solid in others.

Quote:

I've been on three Frasers now and they've all be keel stepped masts. That could be an owner preference thing though as most of the boats were owner finished.

Quote:

The ones on Nikko are not and again, this varies from boat to boat. We're planning to go offshore in a year or two. Chainplates and standing rigging are one of the last chores on our list. I'm not looking forward to it.

Quote:

I think so, that and the storage capacity for water and fuel. Nikko carries 100 gallons of fuel and 160 gallons of water. That's pretty high capacity for boats of similar size. We've talked to other Fraser owners that didn't have all that fuel and water capacity. The interior of Nikko is way overbuilt. It looks like it was all done in 3/4 plywood all glassed in then they laid another 1/2" teak like wainscoating over that. So that's interior bulkheads and walls that are around 2" thick. Nikko has a displacement listing of around 22,000-23,000 lbs.

Quote:
What are the things to look out for when shopping for one (or owning one for that matter)?
Fuel tanks and the motor. I don't think I'd buy an old boat without a pretty close inspection of the fuel tanks. I'd want to know the material they were made up, examine their installation and I'd want to get a peak at the inside bottom of the tank just to see what's going on in there. As far as the motor, that wouldn't be a deal breaker, but we have an old Volvo MD17C in our boat that's coming out before we go offshore.

Quote:

I don't know. He just mentioned in passing that Omega was for sale with a large sail inventory. Aire was a racer and he raced Omega to Hawaii a couple of times.


This winter when I have free time, I hope to get fraserboats.com up and running to start a place to share information about these boats. They're great boats and each person I run into that knows something about them all say they're bullet proof and a great boat.
