[vc_row][vc_column][tlg_headings icon=”” title=”Whistlin’ Riggin'” subtitle=”1979 Union Polaris 36′”][vc_column_text]More than likely, if you know boats from the 70’s and 80’s, when you see Whistlin’ Riggin’ your mind will immediately take you to a Hans Christian. And you wouldn’t be wrong…

The Union Yacht Company initially recieved the plans for the Union Polaris 36′ from Robert Perry before a falling out. He took the plans to Hans Christian, and the Union Yacht Company took what they could from the plans and made it work… so the story goes. But you know, all us sailor’s have are stories.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1103″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1819″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row tlg_vertical_align=”yes”][vc_column width=”2/3″][tlg_headings icon=”” title=”Only Two Owners, Ever” subtitle=”Since 1979″][vc_column_text]Prior to us, Donna Matson was the only other owner of Whistlin’ Riggin’. From 1979 until she passed away in 2015, she sailed Whistlin’ Riggin’, often single-handed, up and down the Pacific Coast in California down into the Sea of Cortez. Several albums aboard were thick with photographs of the adventures aboard when we took ownership. One of the largest motivating factors of Whistlin’ Riggin’s restoration is Donna’s spirit of adventure, which lives on through Whistlin’ Riggin’ and the places she is sure to go in the years ahead.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”1071″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row tlg_text_align=”text-center”][vc_column][tlg_headings icon=”” title=”Specification Highlights”][tlg_icon_title_list][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Cutter Rig”][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Full Keel”][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Year Built: 1979″][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Ballast: 7,800 lb / 3,538 kg”][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”LOA: 36.67 ft / 11.18 m”][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Beam: 11.33 ft / 3.45 m”][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Draft: 11.33 ft / 3.45 m”][tlg_icon_title_list_content icon=”” title=”Engine: Volvo Diesel”][/tlg_icon_title_list][/vc_column][/vc_row]
