S/V Blue Flower (Na'ví Seze) is the workhorse and flagship of the Inland Packet fleet. At twelve feet long with a classic gaff rig this versatile "Microjammer" is able to enter the  protected waters found in the Inland Northwest while still being portable by one person. With a clipper bow and clean lines the Blue Flower hearkens back to the the great age of sailing ships once so common in the worlds waters.

"She has a bluff bow, lovely lines. She's a fine seabird: weatherly, stiff and fast … very fast, if she's well handled." Jack Aubry

S/V Blue Flower started life as a stock, built to plan, Teal hull. After much intensive work the Super Teal emerged and she eventually made her way to Montana. Below are links in chronological  order of her life in Oregon to Montana. Courtesy of Andrew Linn's excellent blog, The Sleeping Schnauzer.
