Moodbird

Maybe the best condition 34 around? Moodbird is lying in Gosport, Hampshire and appears to be in amazing condition for a 1979 boat and must have undergone a refit relatively recently. A lot of boat for the money on the face of it. We do not know the owners so unable to comment further.

DJANGO

Built by Wilson Manning on the Hamble in 1986, Django is believed to be the last Seastream 34 to be built, furthermore, she is one of the very small number of sloop rig variants. Below decks, Django is powered by a Perkins 4108 and has the saloon steering position on the stbd side, both of which are variable across the class. Django is now owned by a Dr F Schmidt, bought in 2018. He intends to start restoring/refurbishing the boat to her original glory over the coming winters. It is believed there have been 4 previous owners.

TEMOE

MODEL: 34 Ketch
YEAR:
1979
BUILT: Hamble
ENGINE: Mercedes OM63 (Original)
LOCATION:  Germany

Built in 1979 in Hamble, Southampton. Hull number 9. It was been sold for £27,000 to the first owner, a former captain. It’s first name was Ansidade. It has been sold in 1998/99 to the second owner, new name Beluga. He refit inside and the motor has been refurbished, the original Mercedes OM636. He wanted to make longer journeys with the yacht but unfortunately his wife gets seriously sick and he wanted to spend more time with her, so he sold the yacht in 2001.

I renamed it into Temoe, this means sunrise in Polynesia (I think). Since 2002 we sail in Netherlands water, our child has been born in 2002, so the trips have to be a little shorter than my wishes are. Nevertheless, we still have a lot of fun on our boat and as ever I’ve been asked about this “goodlooking yacht”. We are proud to own a Seastream. We always feel safe in the rough coastal water, so mostly I could wear shorts and T-Shirts while the sailors on the modern yachts wear rescue equipment.

SeaStream 650 Yachts

MANATEA

MODEL: 650 (actually 70′ loa)
YEAR:
2004
Displacement: 33T approx

Manatea was the first and only 650 built. Sadly as it was the only  650 built as Chris Matthews, Seastream’s new owner, died in a helicopter crash just before the completion of Manatea and the 2nd hull was then stopped by the executors of the estate. Fortunately Manatea was completed by Oyster Yachts in 2005 but Oyster then destroyed her mould so she became the only boat built of this model.

The boat was intended to be a competitor production yacht to Oyster & Swan. She was designed by Dubois Naval Architects and built at Southampton Yacht Services in England in 2004.

Manatea was initially called “Celera” and was first acquired by an Australian who sailed her out of Brisbane and used her to cruise the Queensland coast, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

A new owner, Bob Hayward, then used her to cruise the Fijian Islands (on her passage from NZ to California), Southern California, and Baja Mexico. She was raced in the 2013 Transpac and had the honor of being the first monohull to finish in Honolulu.

“Manatea” is derived from the Polynesian words “mana” (your personal being or personal strength) and “tea” (clear). Together they mean (well to us anyway) “clear being” which is what we feel when we’re under sail on the ocean.  It’s also why our logo is 2 leaping dolphins.

Unfortunately Bob lost Manatea to a fire in the hydraulic power pack under the floorboards when cruising the Inside Passage in British Columbia in July 2015. She burnt to the waterline and sank. Fortunately no injuries. They had done the Van Isle 360 Race around Vancouver Island and she had been performing fabulously until that time.  We had spent a lot of effort to get her into top condition and were intending to sail her to New Zealand.
