Freia , (Launched as TWILA B.) is now owned by Raymond & Linda Williams of Vancouver, Canada, and is home ported in Blaine Washington. The Freia is a 60ft. flush deck wood hull boat. It is an ED Monk Jr. design and was built by Claude Willey on Whidbey island with construction that began in 1973 and the hull and decks were completed in 1977, just before Claude Willey passed on. The boat was launched and towed to Lovric Sea Craft in Anacortes, WA where the superstructure, fiberglass and finishing work were completed, with final launch in August of 1980. It has the original twin Cummins V-903 engines. The superb teak cabinetry and doors were crafted @ Lovrics by Tom Conroy. The boat was launched as the Twila B in 1980 and was owned by Twila and Bob Blain. Their homeport was Anacortes. They sold the boat to Seattle businessman Hans Mouritzan in the late 90s and the boat was renamed Freia. The boat was kept in a boat house on lake Washington since the 90s so needless to say it is in fine condition. Hans renamed the boat Freia (Norwegian for goddess of love and beauty). We expect to keep the current name. The boat was sold a third time about 6 years ago to another owner. We have recently purchased her and have moved her to Blaine Marina as we live in south surrey White rock area of Canada. We are absolutely thrilled to be the proud owners. My husband is a shipwright by trade and has always loved wood boats.
