Details
"SEA WHISPER" is a Fiberglass / GRP ketch built by Fraser Sailboats (Arie & Len De Kleer) designed by Doug Cook.

De Kleer Brothers Industries Ltd located at Richmond, BC, Canada were highly respected builders of heavy duty fiberglass cruising yachts.

"SEA WHISPER" has a spectacular history having sailed across numerous oceans including its passage that saw her relocate in Australia. That journey started in Victoria, Canada heading to the South Pacific with stops in Mexico, Panama and then across the Pacific to New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia before returning to New Zealand in November 2016 then making her way to Australia where she was sold in December, 2016. Since then she has sailed the east coast of Australia including an extended trip to Tasmania.

"SEA WHISPER" is set up for cruising with the minimum of effort required to sail her. A portion of the return trip from Tasmania was single handed.

Construction is hand laid moulded fiberglass comprising of "E" glass reinforcements in a polyester resin matrix strengthened with moulded transverse beams and longitudinal stringers. The hull and decks are built from a primary female plug mould and the two halves laminated together to form a 3-6" glass join from stem to stern. The decks are white painted laminated balsa core. When last surveyed in December 2016 there was no evidence of blistering.
