Low maintenance. Safe. Manageable. Comfortable. MILLIE J’S original owners obviously had all these thoughts in mind when they sat down with Ted Brewer to commission the design of this fantastic 35-foot cruising sailboat. Her cutaway full keel underbody with “Brewer Bite” produces quick yet forgiving sailing characteristics and construction in aluminum lends to a safe and easily maintained platform providing excellent strength and repairability in the case of a grounding or collision. A bulkhead forward provides an additional measure of safety. Her mostly unpainted surfaces require little maintenance and nearly all deck hardware is attached to welded plates on deck, eliminating bedding issues and potential leaks.

Her size was chosen as the most easily managed for two people while maintaining comfortable living space – not only in terms of sailing characteristics but also number, size and complexity of systems. Care was taken to choose the highest quality systems which were installed to yield the most easily accessed and user-friendly arrangements possible. The engine room and mechanical space are second to no other boat of her size. Painstaking effort was made to document the systems installations via manuals and schematics that are available to the next owner.

MILLIE J’S interior arrangement provides comfortable accommodations for two. Her versatile Pullman berth, well-appointed galley, great nav station and functional head compartment were designed for life aboard. Storage is well conceived and executed – both on and below decks. Cockpit lazarettes and a large sail locker forward provide ample storage for cruising gear, sails, spares and other equipment. A hard dodger and tall coaming protect the spacious cockpit.

Millie J’s original owners cruised the Pacific Northwest. Her second owners also sailed the Salish Sea then cruised south to Mexico for a season before shipping Millie J back to Seattle.  Spend some time viewing her impressive specification and equipment list. MILLIE J’S original owners prepared her for extended offshore cruising, her current owners shook her down with their short voyage south.  She is now for sale with all the gear and spares needed to cast off. She has been proven and tested but not used up and is ready for new owners to set foot on board and sail away. Millie J is being sold with all the spare parts, emergency gear, canvas, and consumables needed for long range cruising.

Below decks, MILLIE J’S interior arrangement was thoughtfully designed as a long-term cruising vessel with comfortable accommodations for a couple and excellent systems access. She will sleep four in her Pullman style double berth and salon settees. Ventilation is excellent – provided by two large hatches, eight opening ports, five deck vents and two Hella Turbo fans. The interior is finished in varnished cherry with maple trim and white enameled headliner and cabinsides. Lockers are fitted with cane fronts which provide great ventilation. The cabin sole is easy to maintain Lonseal and all inspection hatches trimmed with cherry. Her interior joinery is completely modular and is easily removed for access to the hull for repairs or systems access. All components have the ability to leave the vessel through the companionway without being cut down to size.

Forward is a Pullman style double berth oriented to port which provides a comfortable sleeping arrangement whether in port or on an offshore passage. There is storage below in two large lockers and additional storage space that may be accessed by lifting the mattress. Above and to port along the hull side are two lockers, a bookshelf and a well positioned locker that houses the Glacier Bay air conditioning. There is a reading lamp at the head of the berth. A watertight bulkhead forward of the berth with emergency access hatch separates the cabin from the sail locker. Forward and to starboard is a large hanging locker. Aft of the hanging locker is a long counter with two large top opening lockers. There are two small lockers below the counter and two larger lockers above along the hull side. A hatch, deck vent, two opening ports and Hella Turbo fan provide excellent ventilation.

Aft, the salon arrangement features an L-shaped settee to port and a straight settee to starboard. A beautifully finished cherry and maple drop leaf table is mounted on the centerline. The table will easily accommodate five or six for dinner or drinks. There is a small lift-top storage locker below the forward end of the table and a deep drawer for silverware, etc at the aft end. Storage around the salon is well conceived and easily accessed. Above and outboard the starboard settee there is a long bookshelf forward and a locker with two shelves aft. There are two large lockers behind the settee seatbacks and a large locker below the aft end of the settee. To port, there are three lockers with shelves above the settee along the hull side. Three lockers behind the seatbacks and a large space below the forward inboard end of the L-shaped settee add additional storage. At the aft end of the settee, there are two lockers – one tall locker that is perfectly configured as a bookshelf for guidebooks, manuals and sailing directions. On the centerline aft of the salon table is the Sigmar diesel bulkhead heater. A stainless post adjacent provides an excellent handhold and prevents one from grabbing the heater stack in case of being thrown about the cabin in a seaway. Two additional handholds run along the cabintop, although MILLIE J’S cabin space is generally configured so that one is never far from a good place to brace yourself. Three reading lamps and an overhead light illuminate the space. The opening hatch, four opening ports and Hella turbo fan provide ventilation.

At the starboard aft end of the salon is the outboard facing nav station. The navigator’s seat swings away below the table when not in use and has a lock to keep it in place. The top of the table folds back to reveal a cleverly arranged computer desk. There is also a divided shelf for navigation tools. Outboard, the Raymarine radar/chartplotter, Tank Tender, Link 2000 battery monitor, ICOM VHF and SSB radios, and stereo receiver are mounted flush. There is an LED chart spotlight and a 12 volt accessory outlet as well as a small drawer. At the aft end of the table are the Blue Seas AC and DC distribution panels, bilge pump switches and Weems & Plath clock and barometer. Two lockers below the nav table provide additional storage.

Millie J’s U-shaped galley is compact and well configured for cooking underway. At the forward inboard end is a well executed trash compartment with an opening in the counter. Adjacent to port is the deep stainless steel sink with hot and cold fresh water and a raw water foot pump. Below is a large locker with shelves. To port, there is open counter space with access to a large top opening dry storage locker. Below are three drawers and a locker. A built-in bookshelf is located forward of the counter to port. Above the forward end of the galley is a large locker with two doors. Outboard along the hull side, there is a large locker with shelves, a sliding door locker with shelves, and a smaller locker aft. The gimbaled Force 10 two burner stove/oven is oriented athwartships. A locker below provides storage for pots and pans. The aft galley counter has an integral cutting board that lifts on hinges to provide access to the top loading fridge and freezer. Aft of the counter is a sliding door locker. Above, there is a smaller locker with shelves. There is an additional locker below the counter at the level of the cabin sole.

The head is adjacent to the companionway to starboard. All surfaces are easy to maintain white painted fiberglass. A shower is integral to the space. The Raritan manual head is mounted at an angle facing inboard and aft. At the aft outboard end of the compartment is a small counter with sink and faucet. There are two lockers below the counter. Numerous other small lockers provide well organized storage space – and all are gasketed. There is even a gasketed locker for the toilet paper roller! Outboard of the counter is a large sliding door locker with shelves. There are mirrors mounted on the forward and aft bulkheads. Hooks provides a place to hang towels or wet foul weather gear. An opening port and deck vent provide ventilation.

A door in the aft end of the head compartment provides access to MILLIE J’S excellent engine room and mechanical space. The fuel tanks and filters, fuel cleaner, hot water heater, refrigeration system, isolation transformer, holding tank and assorted other systems are contained in this space and easily reached. There is excellent access to the aft end of the Yanmar diesel, muffler, transmission and propeller shaft. The front of the engine may be access by removing the companionway stairs, and can also be accessed from above if necessary via the removable cockpit sole. The space and access to systems is exceptional for a boat of this size.
