The Willard 8 Ton sailboat was originally based upon the Willard 30’ Trawler. William Crealock was the designer charged with making the adaptations for the sailboat version. He designed the Willard 8 Ton as a blue water yacht for long distance cruising. Crealock went on to design the Pacific Seacraft line.

 

This 1975 Willard 8 Ton has been used as a sloop most recently with a furling genoa. All of the components including the staysail are available to convert the rig back to a cutter should the new owner wish. The boat features a long, full keel and draws 4’8”. Displacement is 17,000 pounds; ballast is 6500 pounds. The beam is 10’6”. Length on deck is 30’. Spar length is 35’.

Auxiliary power is provided by a Perkins 4-108 diesel providing 45 HP. The engine was overhauled in 2005.

 

The interior of the boat features a v-berth, head on starboard, lockers opposite, main salon, U-settee w/dining table on starboard, settee/ berth on port, galley and navigation area aft. The galley includes a propane three-burner stove with oven, an ice box and a Whale foot galley pimp for water.

 

Electronics include an Icom IC-M402S VHF Radio; aGarmin GPS MAP 740S and Furuno GP-32 GPS/WAAS Navigator; a Garmin GMR18HD Radar; and  Raymarine ST6002 Smart Pilot (Autopilot).

 

The head includes a Jabsco manual toilet with a 6 gallon PVC holding tank. Discharge systems meet Coast Guard regulations.

This is a solid well-designed and well-built cruiser that has an established reputation for sea worthiness in adverse conditions. As the saying goes: “They don’t build them like this anymore.”

This boat is in North Kingstown, Rhode Island for the winter.
