1956 CONTROVERSY AMPHIBI-ETTE 24'. Owner says, "Are you looking for a sailboat to repair and enjoy sailing? Do you know someone who is? Here is a classic old Controversy, the 24-foot Amphibiette named PASSEPARTOUT; she is looking for a new owner who would restore her to her old glory and then enjoy many years of sailing and cruising. This boat was designed by Cyrus Hamlin and Farnham Butler and built by Farnham Butler at the Mt Desert Yacht Yard in Somesville in 1956. Great opportunity for the handy person who knows boats. You finish the restoration on this solid and fast boat and take us for a sail...

"She is presently under cover outdoors in Marblehead, MA. She is on a working trailer and you can take her away. Or we will have her delivered within 30 miles of Marblehead (MA)--further delivery negotiable. Most of the hull has been recently (2007) professionally rebuilt: brand new rebuilt keel and deadwood, ballast has been completely sandblasted and repainted with epoxy coat, replaced most or all of the floor timbers and cross members, planks repaired (The old wood needed to be replaced due to iron sickness). Most of the remaining wood is in good shape. The rudder and possible post need attention. The centerboard needs to be rebuilt (wood with lead core). Topsides (plywood) and remaining bottom (cedar strip) are in remarkably good shape. Stem is sound. Topsides need to be refinished. Spars and sails are okay. We started the restoration but cannot finish it. It’s yours now. Just let us come sail on it someday. (Redd's Pond Boat Works in Marblehead did the partial restoration.) You can read more about the Amphibi-ette, the smallest of the Controversy sailboats, in a 1961 article by Dan McNaughton on The Light Displacement Controversy in an old Wooden Boat Magazine."  Asking: FREE.  (MA)  Contact...
