Slow Loris is custom-built, one-of-a-kind cruising houseboat designed by Paul Gartside and professionally built in 1991. The design nods to the Jay Benford Friday Harbour Ferry/False Creek Ferry aesthetic, and maximizes the liveaboard volume available in 25′5″ feet of overall length and 13′ beam. She features a heavily-rockered scow-type hull form with an exceptionally shallow draft of 2′3″ and bilge keels that allow drying out. Construction is 100% wood with exterior epoxy with FRP sheathing, powered by a 35hp Yanmar diesel. The vessel underwent an extensive professional refit in 2019 which included a new keel, various hull skin replacements using 100% marine-grade plywood, and interior layout revisions to improve the liveaboard ergonomics. Slow Loris has been very well maintained since her refit, including annual engine service and exterior wood repair as needed. She is in excellent turnkey liveaboard and cruising condition, and ready for new ownership who are keen on the floating tiny house life and dream of cruising the Gulf Islands, San Juans or Sunshine Coast.
