Topic Moon (ex Miskin)


Miskin was an Alan Buchanan Albatross class ketch built by Stebbings in 1961. She was later renamed Tropic Moon, and was owned between 1978 and 1992 by Jean and Ed Baardsen, Michigan, USA, and cruised extensively. For the 17 years prior to that she had been used as a charter boat, sailing out of Antigua.

Her steel hull was made in Raamsdonkveer, the Netherlands by Tak Bros. She was 42′ long over all and had a beam of 11’9″. I’m not sure of her current whereabouts.
