Broker's Comments

If only this boat could talk!

Originally built for the screenwriter/director Preston Sturges, she was primarily used to entertain Hollywood's elite during the 30's and 40's.
Humphrey Bogart skippered this schooner in the 1936 Transpac race to Hawaii. During the Second World War she was pressed into service, reportedly becoming part of the Hooligan Fleet, patrolling the West Coast for submarines. Following the war, she was returned to Sturges who then sold her to Howard Hughes. Hughes secretly married actress Terri Moore on board. Their marriage certificate was still aboard years later.
In 1961, John Wayne chartered her, sailing from San Carlos, Mexico to Hawaii and then back to San Juan Island.

When her current owners took possession, they commissioned Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op to do a complete ($1.2 million) restoration (detailed elsewhere here).

Needless to say, this classic staysail schooner is one-of-a-kind and an incredible opportunity for the right person, offered for literally pennies on the dollar.
