Overview

(Adapted from the last survey)

Dreamspeaker II was professionally built by David Johnston of Ferro Cement Industries, It is of Caravel construction with clipper bow and counter stern. The hull and deck are all of ferro cement with heavy re-enforcement of ¼” (80,000 PSI) high tensile cold drawn welded rod as well as high tensile welded mesh. The superstructure is made of painted marine plywood and teak trim. It has a full keel with a large cutaway forefoot, skeg hung rudder and round chines. The keel was laid in 1973 and launched in 1980.

Very generous accommodations are provided in Dreamspeaker II. A chain locker forward followed by a sail locker, enclosed head and shower and a stateroom on each side of a passageway. This is followed by a large salon with a large seating and table forward followed aft by a U-shaped galley port side with appliances opposite starboard. A partial aft bulkhead has steps leading up to the pilothouse helm with full instrumentation and electronics centered and a large navigation table starboard. The partial aft bulkhead has steps leading up to the deck and down to the master stateroom and head which occupy all of the back end of Dreamspeaker II.

The deck is nicely laid and provides easy movement from stem to stern.

The ketch rigging has all aluminum spars with dual spreaders on the main mast and a single on the mizzen.

Dreamspeaker II is a capable offshore cruiser and/or a well built Pacific West Coast cruiser.
