Fall 2010 Issue: Featured Boat

Two 'rotating' boat pics above are from past BYB issues.


1937 Commuter Yacht 65' PHOENIX

FREE BOAT:  1937 COMMUTER YACHT 65' PHOENIX

I can just imagine E.E. Dickinson boarding his new commuter yacht early on a 1937 summer morning and racing down Long Island Sound through a light chop with other titans of industry and finance and then into the East River to dock PHOENIX for the day at the New York Yacht Club's 26th Street landing.  Designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Consolidated Shipbuilding, PHOENIX has been on the hard for the past few years and not doing well.  The yard wants her gone, and her owner would like to see her saved.  FREE to a Qualified Home -- i.e., one possessing the skills and resources to properly care for her.  Photos above circa 2011 just before she came out of the water.  <PICS+INFO>


1964 Arundel 30'

FREE BOAT:  1964 ARUNDEL 30'

"The boat was built 1964 in Biddeford, Maine by Rumery's Boat Yard. I bought the boat off of the original owner. The boat has been documented with the Coast Guard. It has been out of the water for about 4 or 5 years. It has a single engine. A new deck was put in..."    <PICS+INFO>

1956 John Alden Sloop

FREE BOAT:  1956 JOHN ALDEN 30' SLOOP

"Alden referred to this as 'The Little Tramp Class'. There were several boats built to the basic design but with slight variations. Sadly, we will be moving and do not have the time to complete this project. The vessel has teak decks and comes with an extraordinary amount of hardware including an antique ships wood burning stove..."   <PICS+INFO>

UPDATE:  Don't get your hopes up -- she's been adopted.


1949 Chris Craft DCFB

1949 CHRIS CRAFT DCFB 40' --$2500

"She has been stored under cover for the last 21 years. Her bottom and framing have always been good, with little or no dry rot. The transom was rebuilt and all chine planking replaced in 1994..."  <PICS+INFO>

1966 WITTHOLZ CATBOAT 25'

FREE BOAT:  1966 WITTHOLZ 25' CATBOAT

"I just can't cut it up. The deck, cabin and cockpit coaming must be replaced, along with a few hull planks. The hull is fair, and has been properly supported. The boat has been under cover for the past 10 years. There are two masts: the original wood mast and a fiberglass mast from a Non-Such. There is no engine and no trailer. The sail is in good usable condition as are the almost new bunk cushions. All running rigging is old and should probably be replaced. Most of the original bronze hardware is there. The steering pedestal is from another boat, and I have most of the pulleys to install it. No steering wheel. This is a big project, but well worth the effort if a BIG catboat lights your fire."  <PICS+INFO>


1966 Chris Craft Sea Hawk 33'

FREE BOAT:  1966 CHRIS CRAFT CORINTHIAN 33'

"Kept in the water under a garage covered slip since she was bought in 1966. I am the third owner. The original owner named her BOMBSHELL II. The second owner bought her in 2010, renamed her the VERONICA, went through a divorce, and I ended up with her in April 2014..."    <PICS+INFO>
