I am a proud owner of a Searaker 50. Monk Sr. designed the original Moonraker in 1962 for a private owner out of Santa Barbara. The original design was wooden and was spec'd to have hydraulic stabilizers, Monk noted the average sailor would not want/or need to have this option which was removed in the repurposed design. In the mid 70's Monk Sr. and Jr. reworked the design to be a fiberglass model that isn't positioned as a motorsailer. Windward Marine made a handful... i can only find a record of 14 total, with only 7 i can find still in existence. The build quality is solid, the shape of the hull is quick for a full keel. I can maneuver this boat in tight quarters like i have a bow thruster using prop walk.
