PRICE REDUCEDAfter 5 awesome years of being a full-time liveaboard on S/V Molly Rose, it’s time to move ashore and let someone else enjoy the adventure.
Molly Rose, a Canadian registered vessel, is a 1981 Cooper 416 Pilothouse Cutter, designed by Stan Huntingford and built in Port Coquitlam BC by Cooper Yachts, a well regarded BC yacht builder. She is 41.5 ft. long, and boasts a generous 14 ft. beam, 7.5 ft. draft, fin keel and skeg hung rudder. Her 8 Diamond Sea Glaze windows let in a tremendous amount of light even in rainy PNW and she is well ventilated by 6 opening ports and 4 hatches. Her layout consists of aft private double cabin, quarter berth, U shaped galley, chart table, inside steering station, U shaped settee and table, long settee (extra berth if needed), head with separate step in shower and forward V berth. As well she boasts abundant storage lockers, drawers and cupboards. She was built when teak was readily available, and has a mix of warm satin and glossy joinery, including teak and holly flooring in excellent condition. Her upholstery was re-done just prior to my 2017 purchase, and is in very good condition.

As a liveaboard, Molly Rose is very well equipped to spend extended time at anchor with her solar power/generator electrical system and generous refrigeration, heating, LPG and tankage. As a coastal cruiser, she is very seaworthy, offers ease of handling, excellent stowage and comforts for those multi-week Desolation Sound or upcoast trips.
The next owner will find things they want or feel a need to do, but will benefit greatly from the attention, financial resources and care that has been lavished on Molly Rose by her previous owners.
She is currently moored in Richmond and non-liveaboard moorage is available.
