This isn’t a sailboat. This is a call to adventure. This is a summons to sail the seven seas, to dance with Neptune, to convene with the forces of nature. Aboard Gjoa (Yo-ah) you will slip the lines and truly experience the life you were meant to live. This isn’t a sailboat. It’s a way to make that happen.

Gjoa is a proven bluewater cruiser. She’s crossed both the Atlantic and Pacific, N to S, E to W, in both hemispheres, as far south as 45S and as far north as 61N, and now she awaits in the emerald-green Salish Sea for her next master.

She was designed by German naval architect Kurt Reinke (RINE-kee) and built in 2001 by Rehberger Yachts in Germany, The Reinke 13M Special model is “special” because she was widened and extended, achieving the hydrodynamically perfect integration of a bathing platform. The keel sole is 10mm (3.94”) thick, and the hull is 5-7mm (0.2-0.28”). It was built to tolerate ice drift. With an excellent sail inventory, a 2017 75hp Yanmar engine, and a convenient bow thruster, she’s swift and nimble.

Gjoa is a tough, no-nonsense expedition boat, but also a very comfortable liveaboard. She has a deck saloon with all-around views from raised seating. The generous windows are thick, double-paned safety glass.  There is 200cm (6’ 7”) headroom in the saloon, a shower, fridge and freezer, pressure water, hot water, all-electric cooking, washing machine, TV/CD player, and many comforts of home. A diesel stove at anchor or hydronic heating underway keeps things toasty warm. There is closed-cell foam insulation to keep the interior dry, quiet, and the temperature steady no matter the climate.

Outside, she has easy walk-around decks with no teak. The engine is located beneath the cockpit, so stand-up headroom with the hatch removed, and there’s a separate tool storage/work area with a vise. The sugar-scoop stern provides easy dinghy access. Dinghy davits are on the arch and there is an outboard crane. There’s dedicated life raft stowage, a drop-down swim/dive ladder, unpainted topsides, hard dodger, the list of goodness goes on.

You can get off the grid for a long time on this boat: 1,110 ltr (293 gal) of diesel, 700 ltr (185 gal) of water plus a water maker, 400 watts solar, electric cooking (no propane fills!), massive storage inside and out, protected steering stations inside and out, autopilot, handholds everywhere. The twin keels offer the option to dry out for maintenance when you can’t get a haul-out, and the 1.55 m (5.09’) draft will get you into places that other boats can’t go.

Gjoa hasn’t just been used, she’s been loved. The care and dedication shows in all the recent upgrades and new equipment. See the list of everything new in the specs.

Having adventured aboard Gjoa for several years, and with some health concerns, the owners are ready to swallow the anchor and are building their dream house. They recognize that Gjoa is not a boat meant to be tied to a dock, so with grace and goodwill, they are looking for the right person to take her back to bluewater. If you hear that call to adventure, if you want to live the life you’re meant to live, give me a call, I’d love to introduce you to Gjoa.
