Originally built by Blanchard on Seattles Lake Union, commissioned by the US Army in 1942 as “T-Boat 32”

Paspatoo underwent a non-stop 30 year complete reconstruction/yacht conversion ($28m USD pre-inflation costs). The first 6 years of her reconstruction took place in California, then delivered to Port Townsend where from 1986 to 2013 the project was completed by Port Townsend co-op, Townsend Bay Marine and Haven Boatworks. Redesigned by Eden & Eden Architects. Paspatoo’s last systems updates took place through 2017 and 2024. New batteries, inverters and aux chargers installed 1/24. She is currently hauled out undergoing a professional refit to bring all maintenance up to par.

Redesigned by Eden and Eden Architects, San Francisco, CA.

Designed by famed naval architect Ralph Winslow. Following a military career, the vessel was sold into civilian life. Where many of these types of vessels were de-commissioned for relatively obscure demise, this is the example of a passion for restoration and updating without equal.

Does she have a COI?
Answer: No, she has never been chartered, however as she is US built and with her gross tonnage over 100tons she can be chartered as a 12 passenger UPV and with her current configuration, it would also not be difficult to acquire a COI for a higher passenger count

Paspatoo is managed by an incredible captain who would love to continue managing and maintaining Paspatoo under her next ownership - otherwise lessons can be provided to the next owner/captain

2.5 staterooms, 2 heads, heat and air conditioning, state of the art ventilation systems, teak hot tub on aft deck, outdoor shower

Her state of the art ventilation systems are two separate systems; one system for the cabins and the other for the bilge, preventing odors from forming, providing constant fresh air for comfort and allowing the hull to breath

In WWII, the Army Contracted ship builders around the country to build 170 65-foot, diesel-powered, passenger cargo boats that doubled as harbor tugs, known as tug-transports, or T-boats. Four were built at Blanchard boat yard in Seattle, WA. This vessel was “T-boat 32”

The hull construction is Carvel planking of 2-1/4" Old Growth Douglas Fir. Framing is 3x3 on 12" centers. The decks are 1.5” teak planked. The roof decks are cold molded.

Paspatoo is a professionally maintained 1942 Blanchard Wooden Classic. Originally built for servicing WWII military ships, this custom vessel is perfect for living aboard or long-range passage making. Redundant backup svstems throughout the vessel ensure owners and their guests will have a comfortable and safe stay aboard.

She has been re-powered with a single Detroit Diesel 6v92 and features two house generators

Her owners will feel right at home in the full-beam master cabin below decks. Paspatoo is a fully-customized yacht offering a walk-around queen berth, large seating area, desk, and entertainment center with Flat Panel HDTV and surround-sound.

Paspatoo's current owner spares no expense in keeping her extremely well maintained and in Bristol condition. He has put great thought into her well-being. The systems, which have been added make her a first class custom wooden classic yacht with modern amenities

The deck level wheelhouse has a full width helm station. Port and Starboard doors lead out to the side decks. Next aft is the main salon with a U-shaped galley and large dinette giving a casual grand room feel. The passageway to port leads to the on deck level master cabin with double berth and en-suite head and generous built in storage and hanging locker cabinetry. A door leads aft to the back deck and hot tub area. Stairs aft of the main salon lead below deck to a short passageway.

Forward is the second cabin and media entertainment salon. A large berth along with seating are arranged for relaxation and enjoying a movie on the flat screen home movie entertainment center. Elegant woodwork and cabinetry give this area a warm rict feel. The adjacent head with full size bath tub are user friendly as the fixtures are comparable to those seen in a residential application, or as you would encounter on a luxury cruise liner.

Aft leads to the utility area with washer/ dryer, electrical panel access and work bench. Next is the door to the engine room, lazarette access to main generator and underbody of below deck hot-tub.

The galley is bright with storage and counter space that rivals most residential kitchens. Beautiful cabinetry, counter tops and double stainless steel sink. The full size side by side Frigidaire Euro-flare refrigerator/ freezer and Gaggeneau four-burner range with electric oven will satisfy the needs of the most demanding chef. Complete with microwave oven, dishwasher and combo laundry machine, trash compactor and central vacuum, life at sea is not without creature comforts to enhance the experience.

On the exterior teak decks, the foredeck has a Maxwell hydraulic windlass and custom built teak skylight that brightens the master stateroom. From the bow, walking aft down the wide gunwales you’ll appreciate the incredible teak caprails and bronze hardware, you’ll then enter the aft deck where a 180’ view can be soaked in. Speaking of “soaked in” you can also soak yourself in the custom teak 4 person hot tub, in your choice of fresh or salt water.

Also equipped on the aft deck is mounts for up to 8 scuba tanks and a pneumatic connection to recharge your scuba tanks from the onboard scuba compressor that also provides pneumatic connections through the vessel. From the aft deck, you can swim or scuba dive from the easily accessible teak swim platform.

From the port side gunwale, you can step up the beautiful teak stairs that brings you to the flybridge. The Flybridge provides one of three vessel operating stations, a large 6-8 person settee, a well equipped bar and an open large deck for more lounging space, tenders, toys, storage and more.

Hull; constructed of old growth Douglas fir planks. Carvel planking is 9"x 2 ½"on hull below waterline, hull sides are 4"x 2 ½" planks. Planking is fastened to 3"× 3" oak frames, which are on 12"centers. Planking fastened galvanized fasteners. Floors and stringers are bolted to framing. The hull has inner planking on hull insides. Plank seams are tight and caulking is in good order. Aft of the long keel is an iron foot, which carries the load of the rudder. At the stem, the timber is jointed to forefoot and keel with metal strap forming a gripe plate to strengthen stem to keel joint.
The planking is well hooded into the rabbet of stem post. Large rub rail timber is attached to hull just below the shear. Ironwood is used on starboard bow to protect hull from anchor.
