    Walrus is in Alameda, Ca. , San Francisco’s East Bay, with a transferable slip . Slip fees are approximately $280. per month.

    Beautiful, heavily built, full keel pilot cutter, aft hung rudder, custom rigged as a Chinese Junk Sloop. IMHO Walrus may be one of the finest options for a solo sailor or couple out there. This boat is well equipped and more than capable of sailing anywhere her captain desires in safety, ease and comfort. Her design is based on Lynn and Larry Pardey’s Serrafyn as well as other Lyle Hess designs.

    Aquarius Pilot Cutters rarely come on the market. This one is being offered far below market value in the hopes that she goes to someone who can really appreciate her.

    The interior photos show her main salon berth, but the original dinette and table cabinetry are underneath.

    She needs some minor cosmetic work: mostly some sanding and painting, but is stunning as is and is in “sail away” condition today. Very well equipped with fine cruising gear.

  • Yamaha high thrust 9.9 outboard with electronic ignition and hydraulic mount: practically brand new, approximately 15 hours. Walrus came from the factory set up for an outboard. No diesel was ever installed, and there are no motor mounts or prop shaft. One could be installed if so desired.
  • Ratcliff self steering wind vane with Stainless Steel trim tab.
  • Beautiful Tanbark, flat cut Chinese Junk sail w/ wood boom, yard and battens. Excellent condition
  • Freestanding Aluminum mast, mast step and partners are extraordinarily well done
  • Custom Stainless Steel “cage” with seateak roof and Solar panels atop. Roll down panels make this an excellent “extra room” as well as a very secure place to hang out while sailing offshore.
  • 35 lb. CQR anchor w/ chain and nylon rode and Lone Star Marine G3-1400D power windlass. Windlass is in perfect condition and literally a brand new install.
  • Nauta 25 gallon flexible fresh water tank, pressure fresh water system
  • Jabsco marine head with holding tank, macerator pump and overboard discharge. 10 Bronze Perko opening ports
  • Plenty more I am sure I’m forgetting.
  • Diver cleaned the bottom 2 weeks ago and remarked that the paint is recent and the bottom is in excellent condition.
  • Asking price: $9,999.
