Full Details




 The attention to detail for interior accommodation, by Ted Hood, is apparent while viewing this boat. There are no clumsy corners or head knockers. She sleeps five with a great V-berth forward. Ample storage in drawers, hanging locker and lockers with ventilation via decorative and practical caning. Access to the head is from the forward cabin or separate entrance from the main salon. A full stand up shower with hot and cold pressure water accommodates people up to 6'2" and the electric head has been added.

Across on starboard is a hanging locker. Next aft on starboard is a very practically remodeled settee. A unique conversion of storage space provides greater access. A beautifully fabricated teak, bulkhead mounted, fold down table houses book shelves and a bottle locker. The port side settee has been upgraded with easy access to storage like the starboard side. Next aft on port is the easily accessed quarter berth aft and remote nav and chart table. Across the companionway on starboard is the galley with hot and cold pressure water, Ice Box and a 3 burner propane stove with oven. Engine access aft of removable companionway stairs.

Rob grew up on the coast of Maine where he began sailing at the age of 8 through a local yacht club program. He learned many important lessons about teamwork in those early days of sailing turnabouts and 420’s. Later he would become an instructor with that same program teaching kids and adults the joys of day sailing and racing. After graduating from college in 2002 he then moved to Annapolis Maryland and began his career as a yacht broker specializing in the sale of blue water trawlers and sailboats.

Upon his return to Maine in 2013 he opened a satellite office for a brokerage based in Newport at Handy Boat Service in Falmouth. Here he oversaw the sale of both new and used boats with an emphasis on cruising sailboats. In 2017 Rob joined the team at East Coast Yacht Sales in their Yarmouth office where he continues to develop and hone his abilities to coordinate custom boat builds and facilitate smooth transactions for both buyers and sellers on the brokerage market.
