At first glance you would think this yacht was built in the 50′s by Burger, Stephens or perhaps Trumpy. As it turns out, she is actually a fairly young yacht considering her design. She was constructed in 1989 in Boothbay, Maine according to the Boothbay Register.
I lucked out spotting this [...]
After a short winter break, were ready to talk boats again. Hope you all had a nice Christmas.
I spotted this high-strung beauty at the boat ramp last weekend. What a boat! This is not your average Fountain or Scarab. This is on a different level. This is the first enclosed cockpit offshore racing [...]
I don’t know that there are words to describe how I feel about this boat. I was speachless when I was taking these shots. I’ve seen many Trumpy’s in magazines, online and in person, but this one [...]
Grumpy is headed back to Florida.
Check the comments after the original post to see where she has been over the summer. Pretty cool.
This shot is of her today (10-17-13) in wrightsville beach. If you want to see a serious yacht in person head down soon as she could be pulling out [...]

I was cruising through Wrightsville Beach when I spotted this unique yacht about a week ago. I had no choice but to take a shot of her as I knew I had seen her before in a magazine. Sure enough she is a very significant classic yacht. There [...]
It was just a matter of time before I wrote a piece on the beloved Hinckley Picnic Boat. I remember when these first came out, I was blown away. When I heard they were jet powered, I was even more blown away. The looks of these boats and the word “jet” [...]

These old Hatteras yachts always catch my eye. They are just perfect. Some of the nicest designs ever. In my opinion of course. This locally owned Hatty is a late 60′s model designed by naval architect legend Jack Hargrave. Easily my favorite yacht designer.
Todays Hatteras [...]
This vessel didn’t make it on Wrightsville Boats because she is huge. She made it because she is beautiful. I’ve seen several monster yachts come through Wrightsville within the past few weeks but they just didn’t make the cut. Just because they are huge doesn’t mean they are beautiful. I’ve [...]
