The Boat

SV Mosaic

Mosaic rests at anchor for the first time ever with our family aboard

Mosaic sitting in Oro Bay on Anderson Island, the first time we ever got to anchor out for a weekend.

SV Mosaic is a 1978 Sparkman & Stephens designed Fuji 40. She was built in Japan and is hull #2 of only about 13 ever made. At 40 feet long and 27,000 pounds, she’s a big girl, and sturdily built. Some of her fiberglass is said to be near 3 inches thick.

She’s got a nice aft stateroom, considering that she’s an aft cockpit boat, where Brenden and Rachel currently sleep and a deeply divided v-berth up front that the kids are sharing. We’ve seen some photos of other Fuji 40s which have had their v-berth converted to one large berth for the master berth and we feel we may make a move to work that conversion in the future, but for now we’re all happy with our spaces. She’s also got a nice port side pilot berth which is actually quite comfortable.

Here are some specs off

On our vessel, the starboard side quarter-berth was custom ordered to include a large hanging locker which cut down the space of the actual berth to be only about 2/3 of the length shown in the above graphic.
