From Sailing Magazine dated November 2008: The rugged double-ender was designed and built for sailing coasts and inland waters where the scenery is beautiful but the weather unpredictable. If you fancy the notion of sailing some of Canadas picturesque western lakes, gunkholing in Penobscott Bay, or exploring the boats namesake region, the Pacific Northwest, but dont have the time or money to consider full-time cruising, the trailerable Kodiak is an alluring option.

Motoring time using batteries: Approximately 5+ hours at 50% throttle (2-3 knots). Never had any problems with battery capacity- use the motor mostly to get in and out at dock and when lack of wind or inclimate weather prevails... At boat slip, you use the shore power plug-in- nothing special. Offseason, the batteries are are charged overnight one day a month with a internal 144v DC charging system using regular 110v AC into shore power plug-in- a really clean setup that works well!! Checked every month- very little discharge if any!

Boat Condition: Very Good to Excellent shape. The bottom was completely sandblasted and repainted. The boat was in Lake Tahoe last year; pulled the boat after a month and it still looks like brand new!!! Sails are original and in good shape. All exterior teak refinished.

Add ons: Really cool well made one of a kind electric winch mast raising system. Bolted to the back side of tabernacle and works like a charm!
Trailer has added bunks that really make it so much easier to retrieve boat back on the trailer- like butter!!

Manufacturer Provided Description
The pilothouse design maximizes three very important requirements of the mature cruising sailor: spacious comfortable onboard accommodations, excellent handling characteristics, and protection from the weather; the Kodiak Pilothouse Motor Sailer features all of that and a great deal more. A comfortable starboard side steering station and mates chair on the port side provide an excellent view of the surroundings through eight pilothouse windows, two of which are on slides to allow a free flow of air for ventilation. The 6-foot, 6-inch headroom in the pilothouse dispels the myth that all sailboats are cramped and uncomfortable. The cockpit is deep, and long enough to allow sleeping under the stars. Lumbar support is molded into the pilothouse aft exterior, and drink holders are molded into the substantial bridge deck. The coamings are wide and comfortable to sit on when necessary. Teak and other fine wood give the interior that warm, elegant ambiance that is so important to pride of ownership. Even the chart table, which converts to a standup head, is crafted in beautifully finished teak. The 6-foot, 4-inch berth is located behind the steering station. The forward berth is separated from the main cabin by a teak bulkhead, and overhead hatches illuminate and ventilate the main cabin. Two hatches in the overhead of the forward cabin, one of which is a skylight type, provide illumination and further ventilation. Individual reading lamps provide light in the evening.
