PLEASE make an offer on 29ft 'Teleport'!!! She's located in Prince Rupert Canada and ready for expedition sailing this summer!!! Don't miss out!! Just email email@example.com with your offer!!
'Teleport' is one of only six North Atlantic 29's around. Designed by English offshore racing designer Angus Primrose and Blondie Hasler himself, this 29 foot junk-rig (perfect for cruising - see our website for the advantages of junk-rigs) was lovingly built by Jim Creighton, in Canada in 1988, and then rebuilt by Chris and Jess Bray in 2010, who then successfully sailed her up the coast of Greenland and through the Northwest Passage in 2011-12 (over the top of Canada and Alaska through the Arctic) through some major storms and down through the dreaded Bering Strait and Aleutians, down the coast of Alaska to Canada (2013-14), proving her worth as a strong, reliable, and safe go-anywhere cruising / expedition boat. Though only 29 feet long, she’s got minimal side-deck which means the volume inside down below is much larger than you’d expect. She also has a small-looking cockpit, but this is because the North Atlantic 29’s also have an awesome mid-cockpit – a separate, sealed semi-cabin from which you can operate the boat out of the weather (even with heater outlet). This mid-cockpit also doubles as a great ‘mud-room’ or area to strip off wet gear etc out of the weather but before having to wet everything down below. Though originally designed to sleep 6, we re-built her to comfortably sleep two (ok maybe 3), but instead kitted her out for extreme, high-latitude cruising – not only creature comforts like bookshelves, sound system and ducted, thermostat controlled, electric-start heating, but also in terms of brand new ropes, top-of-the-range navigational and safety gear, full AIS transceiver, oversized rocna anchor, custom made expedition dingy with hypalon tubes and 6hp Yamaha outboard motor (combined worth over $6,000 USD) etc. There can be few small boats so capable or so kitted out. Have a read of the huge list of included gear below! This really is a go anywhere, anytime, ideal couples cruising yacht, or equally suited to a solo sailor (particularly with it’s junk-rig).
Visit www.YachtTeleport.com to watch the videos and read all about this amazing little yacht and where she’s been. As you’ll see, we’ve been 100% open and honest all the way through our journey in terms of not trying to hide any of the problems we’ve had or things we’ve had to fix on the boat. See our note on ‘overall condition of the boat’ below.

I was informed this morning by email from Jess Bray that TELPORT has been sold! The buyer is aboard checking things over. He plans to sail her to Australia.
Good news for the boat but Chris is sad about it, Jess says. Quite understandable. I remember how I felt when I saw her out sailing, without me, knowing I might never see her again. When you have invested so much blood, sweat and tears......
