Lion's Paw is a 1964 35' Allied Seabreeze. Only 135 Allied's were built by designer Maclear and Harris between 1963 and 1972. Making Lion's Paw not only an antique, but a rare one as well. Of the 135, only 2 boats are known to be out of commission. The rest, including ours, are actively sailed or being refurbished. According to Frank Maclear, "The boat was designed to be sailed anywhere in the world." We certainly have loved the design of our boat and her many qualities. Including an inch-thick hull and beautiful lines.
