1973 Willard 30 $55k Anacortes WA

As Moderator of Willard Boat Owners Group for last 25-years, I know many of the Willard owners, one of whom asked me to list his Willard 30 for sale as he is out-of-email range bringing her down from SE Alaska to Anacortes.

Puffin, a 1973 Willard Nomad is in great condition and is for sale. A full-diplacement hull displacing around 17k-lbs, she has been owned by the same owner for almost 20-years where she's been berthed in SE Alaska. She's now steaming to Anacortes (8-days) where she will be placed with a broker. This is a great opportunity for a PNW-based new-owner to acquire a solid cruiser that has been consistently upgraded over the years by a knowledgeable owner.

In addition to her full compliment of electronics (older), she has the following relatively recent upgrades:
  • New Beta 38hp engine (2016?)
  • New 110g Aluminum Fuel tanks (2016?)
  • Custom cabinetry
  • Covers for teak caprail
  • Stainless work (pulpit replaced)
  • LPU Paint (2013)

Here are some older pictures of Puffin when Richard considered selling her several years ago. She has since had the Perkins 4.108 replaced with the Beta (a great improvement). NOTE - price is now $55k.

I am happy to accept PMs until Richard can return and get email, though feel free to also email him at

Good show Peter,
I was wondering about Richard.
Willy is headed for Anacortes on Sat also.
Last time I saw Richard was in Ketchikan.

I like his anchor winch w the electronic chain counter.
