Welcome to the website for the Allied Seabreeze Owners Association (ASOA). This website provides a place for current and former owners of the Seabreeze 35 to share information, learn more about their boats, and meet other owners.
This site was recently relaunched to provide updated content and a modern, mobile-friendly user experience. The previous site is available here.
The ASOA Facebook Group is the primary forum for Seabreeze lovers to talk online and share information and photos.
Attention Seabreeze Owners! If you are the proud owner of a Seabreeze in any condition and have not joined the ASOA, please reach out via the links above. The ASOA makes a valiant effort to track the condition, location, and ownership of each of these fine boats, but we can’t do it without your help. You can access the online database here or use our online form to provide updated information about boats and ownership.
The Allied Seabreeze was designed by MacLear & Harris in 1962. A total of 135 of these magnificant boats were built between 1963 and 1972. Of these, we know of only five boats that no longer exist. One is known to have been destroyed on a reef in the South Pacific and the other was scraped after surviving a fire and was considered to be too much of a project to restore. The remainder of these boats, many belonging to members of the Association, are actively sailed or are being refurbished or restored for future sailing.
In an interview, Frank MacLear said the boat was designed to be sailed anywhere in the world. She is a small boat at 34.5 feet overall, but a worthy passage maker. Beyond her seakindly and lovely sailing characteristics, she is a beauty to behold. She was designed by very capable naval architects and built by a company with impeccable credentials. Her hull and deck are solid and her interior thoughtfully laid out.
As a centerboarder, she is capable of safely traversing shoal waters, gunk holing remote regions, enjoying anchorages impossible for boats of deeper drafts, and searching far up stream for more secure harbors and refuge from approaching storms. At sea she is stable and comfortable, but as a centerboarder, the capable sailor will know to reduce sail earlier than on deeper keeled boats.
