SAVE THIS RARE CLASSIC!! All offers considered!

Very rare San Francisco Bird Boat. The San Francisco Bird Boat fleet has been racing continuously on The Bay since 1922. The class is easily the oldest one-design class on the West Coast, and is among the top 5, oldest classes in the USA. This year marks the 91st anniversary of the first Bird Boat, a classic wooden sailboat specifically designed for racing on San Francisco Bay and the first one design fleet on the West Coast, while the San Francisco Perpetual Trophy, first raced on the bay in 1895, is purported to be the second oldest match-racing trophy in sailing behind only the America's Cup.

The S.F. Perpetual Cup is held in Trust by the two senior yacht clubs of San Francisco Bay -- the Corinthian Yacht Club (CYC) and the San Francisco Yacht Club (SFYC). It's a Challenge Cup, with the holder accepting a challenge annually from another yacht club. Both clubs must be on the U.S. Pacific Coast.

These are beautiful, 30 foot, classic wooden sloops. They are lovingly maintained and raced by their owners to an 82 year old, one-design measurement rule.

KIWI was the last SF Birdboat ever built.

ConditionThis is a very strong vessel, with a solid and tight hull and rebuilt cockpit and transom. She is the only Bird with a barrel transom. She is in need of cosmetics. She has received much love in the past few years and was hauled out last year for extensive attention to her bottom and topsides. She does not leak a drop from her bottom!. Her interior has been removed and her transom and cockpit have been rebuilt.
