About this John Alden Bain, Miller & Son Schooner

‘Wanderlure II’ is a spectacular example of a well-executed restoration of a John Alden design schooner. Her sail plan is that of a staysail schooner for ease of handling and the ability to fly many combinations of sails. The new decks are of one-half inch Silver Bali. The galley features a propane stove with oven, well insulated ice box, stainless steel counters and leaded glass paneled counter storage.  Abundant light, ventilation, propane heat and sleeping up to four. With plentiful storage and larger water tanks, fresh bottom and topsides paint, this vessel is ready to go to sea.  

History

‘WANDERLURE II’ was launched in 1926 at the premier Richardson Boat Yard in City Island New York and brought out to Newport Beach California in 1927 by H.H. Larkin.  Having spent her life in Southern California until 1990 where she was brought to Puget Sound, where her current owners bought and took five years to completely restore her to better then new condition. A very capable vessel in any seaway she also had an impressive racing record in California from the 1920’s thru the 1980’s. Nine vessels were built to this John Alden design, including five schooners and four ketches.

Restoration

Varnished teak bulwarks, cap rails and transom were installed about 1970. Between 2000 thru 2005 she was rebuilt, reframed, refastened, recaulked with new Silver Bali decks installed and the cockpit rebuilt with new combings. The rest of the vessel was brought up to like new condition.

The interior was replaced in a traditional manner appropriate to the era with Honduras mahogany, leaded glass, stainless counters in the galley. A propane stove and a Dickinson propane bulkhead heater were installed in 2008.

Originally built with a gaff fore, she was changed to a staysail, along with a six foot taller foremast and a lengthening of the bowsprit. This was thought to have happened in the 1950’s. Bronze winches, Lofran DC chain/rode anchor windlass, varnished masts and a Perkins 4-108 diesel complete a spectacular vessel.
