Forward Cabin




Furthest forward is a large V-berth with generous stowage below and shelves above. Of course there is an oversized chain locker forward with a second area (for proper weight distribution) below the floorboards, just forward of the main salon area. Aft of the V-berth to starboard is a full head, featuring beautifully finished cabinetry, and to port is a large locker. The main salon has full-length settees to port and starboard and is heated by a solid fuel heater. Above each of the settees is a pilot berth. All four berths are equipped with lee cloths and have large storage areas below. Next aft, at the base of the companionway are the navigation station to port and a large wrap-around galley to starboard. The galley features a 2-burner LPG stove/oven (w/ electric bypass switch), a double basin stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressure water (as well as manual fresh and salt water), and a deep spacious refrigerator/ice-box. Behind the navigation station is a large storage area that could be easily converted into a large quarter berth. Just behind the companionway ladder is the engine room, which has room enough for access to all points on the engine. The interior also features two large opening hatches, two Dorad vents, eleven bronze opening port lights and eleven deck prisms providing exceptional light and ventilation.

The Ingrids are based on the original design by William Atkin. She is 38' on deck, double ended in the style of the "Redningskoite". With the bow sprit and windvane she is almost 50' overall. Most of the Blue Water Ingrids were ketch rigged as is Ingrid Princess. The main mast is 50' in height and stepped on deck. The mizzen mast is 35' in height and also stepped on deck. Both masts, spreaders, booms and bow sprit are Sitka Spruce. The masts and main boom are box sections while the rest of the items are solid laminated members.

Ingrid Princess is hull #66 from Blue Water Boats, Inc.. Many of the approximately 143 hulls that were built were kit boats fitted out by their owners. Not the Ingrid Princess. She was built for Mr. Jerry Husted who owned the company and later went on to start Nordic Tugs of Burlington WA. As she was, in effect, the company's showroom she was outfitted with all the available bells and whistles. Ingrid Princess is well known and well loved by both her current owners and the many who fell in love with her and subsequently went on to purchase their own.
