With 1200 sq. ft. of deck space there is plenty of room to walk about. There is no rolling or pitching on this boat compared to mono-hull designs. 

Forward, knotless fish netting provides a nice place to ride, lay out and relax. 

The Main Salon

The Main Salon has ample room for anything from sit down dinners, to dancing and entertaining. With a map table with seating for 8 and a couch that seats 4. You will never be in need of a place to sit inside. Entertainment is provided by a 37" TV - CD player with a library of over 100 movies. Stereo/CD/IP input w/2 600w amps.


The Galley 

The Galley has a 4 burner stove, microwave and toaster oven. With a BBQ on deck that can be used even while sailing it's like being in your own kitchen, but smaller. 

If you wish, you can jump in and lend a hand or dazzle us with your specialty. The Refrigerator / Bar area complete a proper galley. With a refrigerator big enough to put a small person into that runs continuously even when off-shore to the ice maker and snow cone machine. Making this place a perfect home away from home no matter where we are.

Port and Starboard Staterooms

There are 4 very roomy staterooms, 2 on each side, in the outside sponsons.  Access is from the deck only, and is separate from the main salon, which gives privacy and isolation from what may be occurring there.

Each of the 4 rooms have full size beds with great ventilation. Very roomy for two. Other amenities include two portholes, a sink w/hot & cold fresh water, a desk, drawers and hanging storage for cloths ect.

The Windchime is a 56^ Custom Built Trimaran Ketch, designed  by famous multi-hull designer Jay Kantola in 1969. She was first documented in 1973 with the USCG and launched as a flat top, no sail rigging boat, and stayed that way for approximately 10 years. Conrad Starnes was her first Master and continued to be for 30 years. He made the masts and booms using a draw knife to shape them. The spreaders were made from old air plane propellers.

The Windchime is a wood boat. She is constructed with marine plywood and mahogany. With two large glue lames, one of which is 32^ long, holding the three hulls together. She sports a Main Mast of 60 foot and a 50 foot Mizzen,  and has a beam of 32^ 4", and weights 40,000lbs.


The Helm was past to Glenn Schwartzman June 2004. Since then, the Windchime has gone through many changes. From modern standing and running rigging that makes her easier to sail, to ground tackle that makes it easier to anchor. In general an over hall that continues to this day.

In 2006, Windchime was in the Newport to Ensenada race and finished it in a time of 31 hours.

It was a very slow race. Dennis Conners was on the yacht Kelpy that year and was behind us when they dropped their sails and quit the race.
