Tarry Knot - A Distinctive Lady

Commissioned new during 2010

“She is a head turner through my travels and deservedly so” … to quote the seller

The integrity & dedication to the design and build aspect was undertaken by shipwrights with 40 plus years of experience. These shipwrights worked and earned their wings working for high-end boatbuilders along the Maine coast.

Northern Bay hull designed in 2004; considered by many to be known as a “slippery” hull. Her design allows her to take speed without getting “squirrelly” and allows her to steer well with minimal bow steer in a heaping following sea. Her cruise is right around 23 knots and in heavy seas you can back off and she will react as a full displacement hull.

Interior design is a timeless 40’s classic build-out. Many hours of design, fabrication and build went into the interior finishes. The final result being unique and one-of-a-kind.

Hull specifications:

  • Solid Fiberglass bottom with vinyl ester resin skin and barrier coat 2-part epoxy
  • Freeboard from waterline to rub rail is 3/4 Baltic vertical grain resin infused core
  • Wash rails, superstructure, shelter top, cabin top, fore decks, are double 3/4 Nida-Core Lamination for strength and durability.

“Tarry Knot” will appeal to the discriminating eye - built by a Yachtsman who has the experience and knowledge in construction from design to final fit and finish. There are many custom aspects not mentioned, like the custom built mast, Evolution Drive, and twin piston hydraulic steering, but can be seen in the pictures and walk through video.

This stunning one owner 38 Northern Bay's hull was laid in 2007 and then went to be outfitted by Morgan Bay Boat Works in Frankfort ME which took 3 years to complete and was commissioned in 2010. The owner being a high end custom home builder with a large wood shop made most of the woodwork, doors, cabinets and furniture in his shop and shipped it to Maine for the shipwrights at Morgan Bay to install. He personally hand crafted the Hi-Low table and did the inlays himself.
