Red Jacket (formerly Katedna) was the first yacht to be built by the well-regarded N.J. Blanchard Boat Company on Seattle’s Lake Union. Designed by Ted Geary, another Pacific Northwest yachting icon, she has been a fixture on Puget Sound waters the majority of her nearly 100 years of sailing.
Her traditional hull shape provides a sea kindly motion and her schooner rig is easily managed with the combination of an electric halyard winch, furling headsails and low friction sailtracks. Her owners have not found her size, systems or maintenance overwhelming, but have found her to be a joy to sail and a pleasure to maintain.
