A classic cutter built by the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, she was one of the last boats built under the guidance of Master Shipwright Bob Prothero. Built of Port Orford cedar, oak and mahogany, she was designed by local boatbuilder Jim Franken, and has hailed from Port Townsend her entire career. Bryony's design was taken from turn-of the century (1890's) Bristol Channel pilots. Franken gave her a rounder bilge than was traditional. As a result, Bryony sails with considerably less heel than her older cousins.
Bryony can fly three working sails, the main, stays'l, and jib. In light air, using Bryony's topmast, we can add a tops'l and a jib tops'l. Bryony's rig remains traditional, with only two winches. The lines are hauled with human power and hundreds of years of ingenious ideas. Bryony can keep six people busy or can be sailed by one. She is a joy to sail, both for the novice and the expert, offering something for everyone. She is “good for what ails you.”

Bryony is a unique vessel for a few reasons. She gets attention. She routinely wins awards and has been written about and photographed for the wooden boat festivals held in the Puget Sound.
But that's not what makes her so special. The professionals who recognize her merit are around very special boats for a living, as is this lover of wooden boats. Bryony appeals to those who understand her forms which follow the functions, as well as non-boat people who simply appreciate her warm and inviting atmosphere inside.
The desire to find an anchorage, light her oil lamp in her dining salon and open a favorite book is ever present. Just having a boat like this gets you out on the water, and those that realize that experience know how special it is. If you have not spent the night on such a vessel, your best night's sleep is still ahead of you!
This one-of-a-kind gaff rigged cutter is fashioned with a handcrafted tiller. The cockpit is ample and suitable for a small crew. The entire rig is handled easily by just two winches. The side decks are easily manuvered and clean. This cutter has been designed with a taller house so headroom inside is well above 6 feet. Portholes are brass with screens and are showing their patina. Sails are easily stowed below deck either port or starboard aft.
Once below, the aromatic scent of genuine Port Orford Cedar fills the cabin. You will find one queen berth on startboard side, situated over a good size storage basin and bookshelf.
The wash basin is positioned amid ships with a porcelain wash basin with a solid brass manual pump. The new wood stove, locate to port, has an oven and a large cooking surface. This Navigator Stove can burn wood or coal and is effectively vented. There is a 3 person bench seat on the port side with a large bookcase above. Just forward of the bench is a large wooden shelf, atop is a cook stove where the morning coffee is made.
All the lines are easily stored in the forward anchor locker which is canvas-lined and supported by timber. It has room for a baking center where the propane cookstove is located, forward port quarter.
The interior just forward of the stove and large bunk can be arranged in a variety of ways to suit your needs...i.e. a small workbench and tool storage, spice rack with storage bins for flour and sugar, or a chart center where navigation tools are stored. The previous owners raised their daughter from infancy on this boat. The platform where a hand made wooden crib was fashioned still exists.
With sails stowed on deck the aft quarters make excellent single berths, sleeping one person on each side.
If the queen-sized bunk is folded into a bench style seat the salon table can be set up for dining and will accomodate dinner for 4.
