Tiki 46 Peace IV may be coming on the market again!

In a personal letter from the current owners of our old boat PeaceIV, I understand they are thinking of selling her because they do not enjoy doing charter work and wish to have a different lifestyle for themselves.  They have her in Costa Rica currently.  We sold Peace three or four years ago to the young people who did not know how to sail, but took her immediately offshore to Charleston from Beaufort/Morehead City.  Then they continued making long offshore hops all the way to Costa Rica!  I…See More

About me or us?
(We are associated with James Wharram Designs and can help you select the plans you might be interested in, sell the plans to you, and help you with technical assistance throughout your build. If you are on the US east coast, we can stop and visit you as we sail by going from New England to Bahamas each year in our Tiki 46 with the seasons. We sponsor several Wharram gatherings each year during the trip.)
Ann and Nev built Peace IV, a Tiki 46, in Britain and launched in 2002 after working full time for 3.5 years over a 5 year period. We sailed across the Atlantic immediately and have been living aboard and cruising coastally from Rhode Island to the Bahamas ever since.
Looking to?
We are continuing to make improvements to sail handling and general operations so we can live aboard and sail together as we grow older. We can be contacted at our new email address: svpeacefour@yahoo.com

Hi there.

I plan to start with learning to sail on the Great Lakes. Later coastal and offshore (VERY distant future).

It will be just my wife and me.

I just bought the plans, so I have a long way to go.

Some folks probably don't know tha Ann and Neville are plan agents for James Wharram Designs. You can buy study and building plans for any of Wharram's designs from them. They are stalwart advocates for these boats and have shown their boat to hundreds of people who want to see and know more about these boats. David

Thank you for the kind welcome. I'm trying to get my kids to come with me to see the Keys. All have heard of them through my tales of my youth.
So if I want study plans, the design book you would be my point of contact in the US? Good to know. Thanks!

No the kids are up and grown. The oldest (34) is in Okinawa with her family, they may be transfered to England after that, however they have a house near Gulf Breeze, Fla. My middle girl(32) is here in Seattle as is my son(30). I have 3 grandkids already, a week from today I will be 55, got an early start, then almost killed myself working too hard and never learned to play much. I needed to listen more to Buffett.
I have some acerage about 20 miles north of Lake Ponchatrain, which I think is going to be my building site. I'm going to recycle an old hay barn a friend is going to tear down to my property and make it my boatyard. With the timbers it will look like one of those island yards you find in the South Pacific.
I expect the Keys a couple times a year, once for the Hemingway Festival and I hope Cuba opens up for us in the not too distant future. I think my middle girl and her husband will be ones to sail with me the most. They are adventurers, they travel to some other part of the world at least twice a year.

Can I get thestudy plans from you? ch
At 8:35pm on June 1, 2009, Chuck Holton said…
Thank you! I ordered a set of study plans for a Tiki 46 and a design book today from the online store. You can honestly tell them that it was your recommendation. I want to look at a variety of things. I have busied myself today reading building blogs and collecting links to Tiki 46 sites to start building a information data base. I have not completely sold myself on the 46, but I am a big guy, 6'4" 250. I am currently building a Ulua and stretched it too 24 feet for paddling, some sailing and fishing and felt I needed the room. Thus my leanings to the 46.... however in my collecting the last couple of days I have starting adding 38 sites as well.

I mentioned the boat to my daughter today, at our dad and daughter, Jen I knew she would be the one, weekly lunch and she was already planning trips with me inviting her friends*lol*. She and her husband want to return to Belize and Costa Rica. She had a double major in college a marine biolgist and French and loves adventure. I would expect she would want the Tiki when I pass.

Bill, who had his built in Phuket, mentioned some issues with steering and tender location and seems something about rigging the head sail issues, got to read it again. Any idea about what those issues might be? My plan is to go through the blogs and sites and write down my questions and then see if I can get clarifications on the forums. That way I don't bother you all the time.

Your idea about small parts is great. I have built or help build a couple of planes to include a warbird trainer. When money was short we would do just as you suggested and build or repair the small parts which all needed doing.

You have my word that when it comes to purchasing plans my order will be through you.

Cheers Mates!

Hi Ann and Nev, i guess the unconventional bit is that we are based in a part of the world where wooden sailing boats are not common. The other bit is that I have played with building materials that are new - polycore to be precise. Very light, and works out about the same price as ply in Australia. On that subject, we do love our Narai, but for a number of reasons, we are thinking of building a new boat.

Hi Ann and Nev, yes, the Nevilles of the world are a relatively small group. I think you may have met our boat, Alli-Nui, before she sailed across the Pacific. She is a beautiful boat. Our problem is that we have had to do a lot of work cutting out rot (hence the wood turnoff) - we live in Australia's wettest area, 5 metres + of rain per year. If we could cut the lines in the next 12 months, we would keep her. If I need to work longer, the idea of a new boat to retire on becomes attractive. Nui has a similar rig to Peace, we like it. T46 is high on the option list, as are the Easy 12m, and Waller 1100. The fact that JWD has approved foam is very interesting - as I mentioned, have built a dinghy from it, very easy and quick to work with, and would suit the Wharram hulls well. I like the idea of laminating one side (smooth finish), and applying most of one panel per side. We actualy have a set of Narai plans - were going to build when Nui turned up, but we would now go T46.

Forgot to add on the last comment - we are watching Bertrand's progress with great interest - I have no doubt that he will be successful with the biplane rig. There was a T38 built in NZ a few years ago with a biplane junk rig, not as well developed as Bertrand's and Schionning have stock plans with a biplane rig. Abig Wharram with all that space available..great!
