Perry 61' Ketch: An American designed and US built Classic:

Don't be confused by the year of construction on this beautiful NEW yacht! Her hull was laid up in 2016 and she has a few items to be still completed before she is ready to launch for her first commissioning from the factory to make her a 2024 model year for her first owner of record! Seller will warrant mechanical and electrical systems for a period of 6 months after final yacht acceptance, post commissioning and sea trials completed. Pacific Seacraft will warrant construction and structural components for a period of one year after purchase.

Call, text or email us for a just completed (11/1/2023) out of the water, comprehensive survey.

The Perry 61 Ketch was conceived by Paul Serini, designed by Robert Perry, engineered by Ivan Erdeviki, and built by Pacific Seacraft. The major drivers in the design were safety, superior strength, heavy weather capability, performance under varied conditions, shorthanded operation, ample storage for gear, water, and fuel, practical functionality, and timeless, elegant traditional beauty. The Perry 61 Ketch is all of this, and more.

This is a beautiful head turning yacht! She is long and lean, and safe under way, designed for a quality minded, adventurous cruising couple with occasional guests or crew. With her high bulwarks, custom rails, narrow beam thoughtful handholds, and protected hard–dodger, she’s built to go out in confident comfort when most others cower in the inlet. She is heavily reinforced and boasts multiple water tight honeycomb chambers, to survive hard groundings and collisions – something we all hope is never tested.

Her modern underwater design, 7 foot draft, modified flared fin keel, and monoque carbon fiber rudder grant her access to most cruising grounds yet permit her to heave to when needed, all without so much wetted surface that she becomes sluggish under sail, or when backing up under the power of her fuel-sipping John Deere marine diesel engine and 5-blade feathering Max Prop.

She was designed to sail in comfort as far north or south as 65°. Sail handling systems assume a crew of 2 to 3, with a split rig with modest sail sizes and reefing capabilities that provide a huge range of sail combinations and sizes, allowing 1 to 2 people to raise, douse, and reef sails in safety. Her sleek, narrow frame will allow her to sail in light air, and then spring to her feet in moderate to heavy winds.

No expense was spared in her construction, with all specified materials and components being the Best of the Best. From the cast lead ballast keel with nineteen 1.25” Aqualoy bolts, to the custom hand laid tapered carbon spars and custom furling booms, to her massive bespoke Ideal windlass, everything about her exudes quality.

The custom interior is as unique as it is spectacular. Craftsman built Honduran mahogany trim, black walnut and mahogany furniture, a custom teak and stainless watertight butterfly hatch, and rare 18th century, clear vertical grade antique heart of pine for the sole, all make her truly one of a kind. The unapologetic jet-black hull, teak decks, and varnished trim mean she’ll turn heads in any setting, and put a proud smile on your face when you approach her at dock.

For that unique and discriminating person, the Perry 61 Ketch will fulfill the wildest of cruising dreams, and become a cherished heirloom for many future generations.


After the signing of a contract, deposit in escrow and a satisfaction on an "On Land survey and any other contingencies", the Seller will split the cost of transport, launch, commissioning and sea trails of the yacht with Buyer in the Beaufort NC area.
