STUNNING one of a kind find!

Only a handful of these boats were built with both the pilothouse and raised salon    interior. ONWARD was the first boat, built in 1992 and featured in the Seattle Boat Show. Designed by Bill Dixon and built by Ta Shing of Nordhavn and Mason fame, she is a powerful bluewater cruiser. 

ONWARD has had two owners, both full time cruisers, who have meticulously maintained her. She is loaded with equipment and features that make her an ideal home for a cruising couple with extraordinary storage and first class, private accommodation for guests. Every system onboard is in excellent working condition and she easily passes as a boat less than 10 years old.

If you are searching for a solid bluewater cruiser that has been maintained to the highest standards ONWARD will not disappoint.  Call to schedule your appointment.


Onward’s center cockpit is dry and secure even in tough conditions. Four steps down the companionway is the lower helm with complete navigation suite, hydraulic steering and throttle control. One step up to port is the salon with panoramic visibility while seated in a comfortable U-shaped settee. Two steps down and forward is a private guest cabin with pullman berth with ensuite head/shower. Two steps down and aft is the fully equipped galley with extra deep double sink and abundant storage. Continuing aft through the galley is the master cabin with ensuite head, shower/bathtub. All living spaces are complimented with cabinets and hanging lockers. Numerous storage areas are available throughout the boat for long term cruising. Even sails can be securely stored below deck without culttering living space.
