Phred is a beautiful, high quality performance cruising cutter built by one of New England's permier yards, David Walters Yachts in Portsmouth, RI. David Walters designs were featured in Mate's The World's Best Sailboats with other world renowned yards including: Hinckley, Natour Swan, Baltic, Alden & Little Harbor.
Phred is a custom longer version of the highly regarded Cambria 44 and 46 with the benefit of a aft deck with locker behind the helm seat. Like her sisterships Phred features a modern shoal draft fin keel skeg and protected rudder. For enhanced windward performance the centerboard can be partially or fully lowered. Her sea kindly hull design is exceptionally strong and the Air Ex Core between the fiberglass laminates provide added strength and sound and thermal insulation.Her interior features exquisite varnished teak interior wood work.
The main engine was replaced in 2007 with a Yanmar 75hp and Phred offers an extensive list of upgrades between 2010-2013. Equipment includes reverse cycle AC, central heat, offshore electronics and furling, staysail & headsail. Phred may be the best value on the market for sailors that desire exceptional quality at a fraction of her $1 million current replacement cost.
Phred comfortably sleeps 6 in three cabins.Below is a large main salon, galley area and fully equipped aft facing nav station. There are 2 sleeping cabins and two heads with showers. Two zone reverse cycle central air-condition/heat systems and Espar diesel forced hot air central heating are valued options for cruising whereever the next owners plan to cruise. When the Espar is operating it can also provide heat to the cockpit.
Phred features a custom teak interior joinery with satin and gloss varnish finish, leather and custom fabric upholstery and a fully removable teak cabinsole with contrasting light inlay. Custom inlaid artwork of Phred's hull lines in gold finish inlay is mounted on main salon bulkhead.All the door entries, aft shower entry and arch separating the salon from the galley are curved, laminated teak moldings.

Phred was purchased in 2009 and sailed her from Newport, RI to Florida., then trucked her across country and relaunched her in Seattle in early 2010. Then I sailed her all through the San Juans, Vancouver Island and a 6 month sail up to Alaska and Glacier Bay, Sitka, Hida Quiwaii Vancouver, and now we reside in San Francisco. I enjoyed living on Sapphire and that Sapphire is the nicest sailboat I have ever known. She constantly attracts people who wander over to look at her lines, ask about her creator, share conversation about her beauty and build. It is my firm opinion that she is of a higher build quality than Hinckley. Many will agree upon viewing this sailboat. She is also an amazing performer on the water in all sea conditions. She easily sails in the high 7's and 8's. Her helm is well balanced and her motion is pure joy.
Phred is truly a classic example of the best of both traditional styling and modern performance cruising rig and hull design. The beautiful counter stern and 5'6" custom shoal draft keel with centerboard provide entry to100's of extra harbors and passage through the U.S. intracoastal waterway. The classic sheerline, raked bow and dark blue hull offer a particularly attractive design.
