Year 1987
Length 30 ft

Hinterhoeller Yachts of Canada produced about 1,000 of these immensely popular cat boats.  Designed to be very easy to sail with a single wishbone rigged self-tacking and self-vanging mainsail, she is also very stable with her 39% ballast to displacement ratio.  Her cat-rigged mast flexes to leeward to spill wind keeping the boat from being over-powered when the wind pipes up.

At 11'10" beam for 30'4" length, the beam to length ratio is extreme in comparison to most monohulled sailboats.  This makes for not only a comfortable ride, but results in an enormous amount of living space, and a very comfortable cockpit with clean uncluttered decks.  

White Bear’s spacious and well-ventilated interior make her an ideal live aboard cruiser.  The salon features an L-shaped dinette with fold down table and an opposing settee that converts to a double berth. She has a full head with separate shower stall and a separate master cabin with a large permanent double pullman berth with hanging locker and plenty of storage.

Perfect for weekend getaways, and local cruising her uncluttered deck and large deep seated cockpit make for comfortable and safe sailing for family and friends.
