Design 2710 - 45' Motoryacht

I am currently in Maine visiting two boats we have under construction at two different yards, one power and one sailing yacht. I was visiting the Lyman Morse yard in Thomaston and came across our design 2710, a 45' motoryacht that was built by the New England Boatworks of Rhode Island a few years back.

Commuter Line

Here's a beautiful line of commuter motoryachts we have developed, including:

The 68' Phoenix II -

The 49' Gryphon -

and the 37' Pegasus-

The impetus to this line was the original Phoenix, the 1936 commuter built at the Consolidated Shipyard of New York.

We have developed some fantastic interior layouts for these boats. Please contact us for more information.

1937 Avanti Versus 2007 Anna

Here's an interesting sequence of photos that demonstrate how over a fairly long period of time the craft of boat building really hasn't changed all that much. Each sequence shows an image of Avanti (design #85), built at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in 1937 followed by a sequence image of Anna (design #2721), constructed in 2007 by Brooklin Boat Yard. It's incredibly similar considering 70 years separate the two boats.

Design 2678 - 46' Sloop

This beautifully varnished cold molded sloop was built by the Walsted Baadevaerft yard of Denmark. Built for world cruising for a young family, the boat has cruised extensively throughout Scandinavia, the Baltic, Europe and the United Kingdom.

The interior accommodates four people with additional pilot berths in the salon on both port and starboard sides. Starting forward in the vessel there is an owner’s stateroom forward with “vee” berth, dual dressers, and single hanging locker. A custom deck hatch centered on the “vee” berth will provide both light and ventilation. Aft and to port there is the single head with integral shower, heated towel rack, and mahogany detailing. Directly athwartships of the head is a salon storage and display unit, set to counter height.

Moving aft is the salon with its port and starboard settee and folding centerline table. Aft and to port of the salon is the generous galley, fit with a stainless steel sink, stove, and countertop. The centerline galley counter will house the main engine and assorted machinery, as well as the fireplace in a recess on its forward face. Aft and to starboard of the salon is the navigation station with seating for two and built in cabinets for navigation, sailing, and electrical instrumentation. Aft of the navigation station is the aft stateroom, complete with a double bed and hanging locker.

A sistership has been built to this design. Plans are available for construction.
