Saratoga spent her first 47 years in Seattle, kept under cover at the Queens City Yacht Club. Designed by the renowned North Amercian naval architect Ed Monk Senior and built by R.M. Tollefson (who founded Tollycraft), she has previously been named Bridges, Sea Kay, Miramar and Coby.
In 2004, Saratoga (then named Coby) was transported on the deck of a cargo ship to Melbourne, where she was kept at Docklands. In 2010 she was transported by road to Perth, where she has since called the South of Perth Yacht Club home.
Saratoga is carvel-planked, with a cedar hull and mahogany topsides. She is powered by her original Detroit 4-71 diesel engines.
In 2013, Saratoga underwent an extensive overhaul and re-fit over a 6 month period. She's ready for another 60 years.
