General Details



This exquisite American built motor-yacht was exclusively built for her one and only owner with painstaking time and care. She has been Captain maintained since the day she was launched.


This one owner beauty was custom designed and built for a knowledgeable and experienced owner. The unique design provides larger staterooms and heads without adding to the length of the boat.


Originally on the market at $2.4m, the price has been reduced dramatically, as the family has finally decided to let the boat go. The premium slip in which "Sailbad the Sinner" lies is also for sale, either as a package deal or separately. Longboat Key Club Moorings is undoubtedly the finest facility on Florida's west coast and ownership includes benefits at Longboat Key Club, which you can check out online.


This fiberglass/Airex ( see extra description on hull contruction on a subsequent page) composite raised pilothouse Northcoast 84 motor yacht is the classic example of what American builders and designers accomplish. She was created by naval architect Jack Sarin and exterior designer Paul Frederickson. Her sleek lines and high freeboard make her a comfortable and modern looking yacht. Pay close attention to the classic Paul Frederickson/Jack Sarin lines that bridge the gap between classic and modern. Sailbad the Sinner appears to be doing 15 knots even when she is resting dockside. She captures the classic look of the Fleming and then adds a touch of Hargrave. All of this culminates in only a design that the truly great designers can achieve and certainly Sarin and Frederickson are among these. When Sarin is accompanied by Frederickson you get an incredible performance motoryacht that is a jawdropper to look at. "Northcoast designer Paul Fredrickson explains," this is the sixth rendition of this boat, so we have perfected it over the years," "You won't find elliptical windows or curved staircases. It harkens back to a classic American design, but it's just as contemporary looking today as the first one that came off the line in 97. When you're investing on something of this magnitude, the design should have longevity". She has a plush, cozy interior that is designed for plenty of space and privacy for everyone on board. She boasts a fully equipped country style galley with black marble effect countertops. There are three staterooms in total accommodating 8 guests. The full beam master stateroom has a king size berth and ensuite heads with a ‘his and hers’ arrangement including a bath and shower. Forward is a VIP stateroom with a walk round queen sized berth and a full head & shower. The twin guest stateroom also has ensuite heads. Captain’s quarters aft accommodate 2 crew, in upper and lower berths, with a separate head and shower. Sailbad the Sinner has a twin screw Detroit/MTU Model 1227K13 12V2000 @1480HP propulsion engines with Twin Disc 2.45 -1  reduction gears allowing her that extra burst of speed when it is time to head in.

Additional Accommodation Information
Master Stateroom She is replete with a full beam stateroom that allows tremendous space for her owners on board. The closet space is second to none in the industry. With a full size vanity and very large flat screen TV there is no luxury one could think of to add to these accommodations. There are "his and her" heads that are joined in the middle by a large bath and shower. The finest marble and granite is used in the furnishings. The cherry wood interior is splendid, sporting even cherry wood doorknobs. VIP Stateroom This beautiful accommodation would be the Master on most yachts of Sailbad's size, but not her. There is an oversize queen along with a full size en-suite head which lies fully forward towards the bow and is totally separate and private. This brings total privacy to those very important guests that are invited on board. Here again Northcoast has hit a home run with the storage and closet space. Guest Stateroom This accommodation lies in the stern close to the master suite. It features two over size twin beds along with its'very own vanity and an extremely large en-suite head. As you can see the owner preferred great space and privacy without the overcrowding of accommodations. Their attention to storage and closet space is remarkable. Crew Accommodations At the stern there are private crew quarters with an en-suite head and rest area.

PVC Foam Cores:
There are two types of foam core materials—ductile and rigid. Examples of the two are Airex—which is a ductile PVC foam material; and Divinylcell—which is a rigid PVC foam material—both of which have a long history of being used as a core materials in GRP boats. Ductile foams are best used for hull laminates.  The reason for this is that the ductile foams will often compress in the case of an impact and will protect the inner laminate from rupturing, helping preserve the water-tight integrity of the hull.  Combining ductile foam core materials with layers of kevlar cloth in the hull laminate make for a very durable hull with high resistance to being holed. Rigid foams are often used for deck, cabintop and interior laminates.  The rigid foam cores make laying up the large, relatively flat panels easier and create very rigid and stiff structures. Unlike ductile foam core materials, rigid foam core materials will transfer most of the impact force through the laminate, which makes them less desirable for hull construction. Depending on where in the boat structure the laminate is being used, different density foam core materials can be used to provide greater strength as needed.  However, end-grain balsa is generally stronger in shear and compression than either ductile or rigid foam core materials. GRP Resins:   Vinylester-based Resin: Vinylester based resins came into use as a response to the osmosis problems that have been associated with the polyester resins.  Vinylester and polyester resins are very similar and are often used together in production boats, where the vinylester resin is used for the outermost layers to provide greater resistance to osmotic blistering in modern boats. However, vinylester resins are a bit more expensive than polyester resin. Like the polyester resins, vinylester resins have poor secondary (adhesive) bonding characteristics, making it, like polyester resin, less than ideal for repairs.   Reinforcing Fibers: Glass Fibers: The most common and least expensive reinforcing cloth is fiberglass cloth.  This is the original material used in GRP construction, but has been supplemented by other, more expensive and specialized materials in modern boats. There are two types of glass fiber used in boat construction:  E-glass and S-Glass.  There isn’t that much of a difference between these two types of glass fibers, but cloth made with S-glass is generally about 20% stronger than regular glass made from E-glass.  Ideal Boat Construction: My ideal boat would have hulls made of Airex-cored hulls with Spectra reinforcement along the bow and keel.  The deck and cabin top would be Divinylcell-cored, with carbon fiber reinforcement of the mast step area and the akas.  The carbon fiber reinforcement would be glassed over with an exterior fiberglass layer to provide galvanic isolation for hardware installation. Areas that were highly loaded, like the chain plate and deck hardware attachment points would be solid glass with carbon fiber reinforcement.  Areas in the hulls where the through-hulls need to be installed would also be solid glass. The boat would be constructed using epoxy resin for the hulls and vinylester resin for the deck and cabin top.  
Hull and Core Construction
Cored Laminates in GRP Boats Modern GRP boats often use a cored laminate construction for several reasons.  A cored laminate can be much stiffer, stronger and lighter than a non-cored laminate.  Using cored laminates can reduce the weight of the hull and deck, allowing more weight to be concentrated in the keel, at least in monohulls, and result in a faster, stiffer, higher performing boat, than the same design would be if built using uncored laminates. Using cored laminates allows multihulls to be much lighter and more rigid than using uncored GRP, which is relatively heavy and flexible. While core materials are often more expensive per pound than resin and fiberglass cloth, proper designed cored laminates can often reduce the cost of making a boat, by greatly reducing the amount of resin and cloth needed to make the boat.  Using cored laminates can also reduce or eliminate the need for additional stiffening or reinforcement such as an interior grid, stringers, or pan liner—simplifying the construction.   Why is a Cored Laminate Better? A cored laminate is lighter and stiffer than a solid fiberglass panel of the same area and weight.  The core material is effectively acting as a stress web between the two layers of laminate bonded to it. This is similar to the inner perpendicular section of an I-beam, which acts as a stress web for the two outer sections of the i-beam. Basically, for a cored laminate to bend, you need to compress the skin on the impact side and stretch the skin on the opposite side… by having the core, you’ve effectively turned the bending of a single layer in to the compression of one side and the tension of the other side, with the forces being transmitted via the core material. However, when a balsa core rots, the two skins no longer work in tandem, since they’re no longer laminated to each other. The same problem of the skins not working in tandem can occur when water penetrates between the core material and one of the skins, which can happen when water intrudes and the laminate flexes, since the flexing of the laminate can act to pump water in between the skin and core.  This is why properly potting and sealing the core off for any holes drilled through the cored areas of a deck, cabin top or hull is so important. Core Materials:   First, while plywood does have a lot of tensile and compressive strength, it is a fairly heavy material, so there is little weight savings using it. The other core materials allow the laminate to be much lighter for the given strength. Second, it has the worst disadvantages of both foam and end-grain balsa.  Like foam core materials, it allows water to migrate vast distances and delaminate large areas over a relatively short period of time.  Like end-grain balsa, it rots and breaks down when water gets into the laminate. Fortunately, marine plywood isn’t used very much as a core material in modern fiberglass boats.
