About Polaris:
Polaris is a 47', double-ended, rugged, North Sea trawler-type vessel. She holds 150 gallons of fuel and 80 gallons of water to keep the crew on the move and hydrated. Built in 1937, she recently underwent a full hull, deck, and system restoration. Massively built, Polaris is No. 5 of the Pacific Pilot series built by Star Shipyards of British Columbia to navigate the extreme conditions of the Columbia River and the Pacific Northwest. From 1937 to 1974, she worked for Pilotage Authorities and from ’74 to ’92, she worked towing logs on the Columbia River and in Alaska. In 1992, the vessel was sailed to Seattle and sold to the Jose Cuervo tequila company. They subsequently trucked her to the East Coast and operated the boat between Maine and Florida as a promotional/party vessel.
In 2007, she was purchased for a restoration hobby project and restored from the keel up over a two year period for personal use. She is powered with a factory rebuilt Detroit 6-71N diesel, has a bow thruster, Onan 4kw genset, air conditioning, diesel heat, all new electronics, wiring, plumbing, tanks, steering, galley, etc. She was awarded “Best Restoration With respect to ‘Original Design Intent” at the prestigious Mystic Seaport Antique and Classic Boat Rendezvous at 2010.
