Every once in a while I come across a really unique yacht that gets my attention and Wanderbird really does.   At a cost of over $9,500,000 to build she is an amazing buy at the asking price of $1,375.000.  The overall design was done by Greg Marshall using a hull based on an Ed Monk Sr. design updated by Ed Monk Jr.  Ed Monk Jr also designed the super structure. She was built in British Columbia, Canada by Park Isle Marine.  Without question this has to be one of the best designed and equipped blue water trawlers on the market today.

Wanderbird has three guest cabins and a crew cabin providing berths for six guests and two crew.  The master is located mid ship on the lower deck.  It has two large twin beds with an ensuite head, a walk in closet and an abundance of drawers and cabinets.

There are two identical guest staterooms (mirror images of each other) mid ship forward from the master.  Each has two twin berths, plenty of storage and a private head.  They share a common shower. 


The crew cabin is located all the way forward. It has two berths and a head.


The cabins are finished in solid mahogany cabinets and trim except for the soles which are book-matched teak. The cabinetry and walls are finished with 15 coats of white enamel trimmed with varnished mahogany. All the cushions on the benches and settees are down-filled for comfort.

Galley & Laundry

Keeping in mind the scope of cruising envisioned, the galley is located aft of the saloon and designed to be useful in rough seas. Using top quality appliances and creating points to lean against this galley is any yacht chef's dream.  There are convenient pass-through windows to both the aft deck and dining area so the galley can be closed off with pocket doors for privacy or night running. Conveniently located overhead grab rails are located throughout the vessel.

Located mid-ship the saloon features a built in "L" shaped settee with down filled cushions surrounding a varnished mahogany hi-low sliding table that can be used either as a coffee or dining table. The bulkheads are finished with 15 coats of white enamel and are trimmed with varnished mahogany. The soles are book-matched teak. Surrounding the mast compression post is a mahogany wet bar with a copper sink.  A plasma TV swings down from the overhead. Between the wet bar and the galley is a dinette finished in varnished mahogany.

Master Stateroom

The full beam midship master stateroom has double sea berths to both port and starboard.  Below each berth are drawers. Forward on the port side is a walk in cedar lined hanging locker and to starboard is the master head and shower. The bulkheads are finished with 15 coats of white enamel and are trimmed with varnished mahogany. The soles are book-matched teak.


In planning the berth arrangement the owner stated "When we're at sea, these bunks offer a safe, comfortable place to sleep, unlike those silly center platform beds from which rolling seas can send you flying."

Guest Stateroom

Forward from the master stateroom on each side of the passageway are two mirror image guest staterooms finished the same as the master.  In each stateroom you have criscrossed bunks, ample storage, cedar lined hanging locker and private heads with a shared shower.


The pilothouse is arranged to be the center of cruising for this yacht.  She is equipped with redundant navigation electronics, spacious chart tables, three Stidd seats, a comfortable settee and a pilot berth. The bulkheads are finished with 15 coats of white enamel and are trimmed with varnished mahogany. The helm is finished in varnished mahogany. The soles are book-matched teak. Wing doors lead to the Portuguese bridge and the foredeck. There is access to the fly-bridge by way of stairs.
