44′ Bruce King Custom Ketch

This stunning custom Bruce King design was purpose built with long form cruising in mind for the author of “From a Bare Hull”, the well known and timeless book focused on boat building.  Warm Rain II was built at Robinson Yacht in Arleta, CA and finished by Jim McLellan in B.C. Canada. The hull is wood (mahogany) composite with a clipper bow and overhung bowsprit. The fin keel and separate hung rudder make this boat a comfortable and fast sailer.

Warm Rain II’s interior appointments are at once practical and eye catching. Spacious cabins with accommodations for 7, two heads, L-shaped dinette and the fully outfitted galley make this boat the perfect family cruiser. Privacy and space for entertaining coexist gracefully onboard.

A marine survey of Warm Rain II is available upon request.
