Tatoosh is an extraordinary 80' ketch built by members of the Boeing family in 1959.



Tatoosh is an extraordinary 80' ketch built by Cranston "Boo" and Helen Paschall of the Boeing family back in 1959.  They hired well-known and respected naval architect Ben Seaborn to help them create their dream yacht.  Mast stepped in 1961, Tatoosh was one of the most talked about boats that ever came out of the Vic Franck Boatyard in Seattle. 

In the summer of 2018, Jim Jacobson purchased Tatoosh with the aim of fully restoring her magnificence, nostalgia, and beauty. After extensive restoration, she was sold in 2021 and is now harbored in Los Angeles.

You can learn more about Tatoosh on her website.
