Her owner and builder wanted a easily handled yacht that would comfortable take him and his wife and guests through inland waterways and the inter-coastal comfortably and very efficiently. He also wanted to have her easily transported by her own custom trailer to new destinations with relative ease.   This is a rare, unique and wonderful moment for the right buyer to purchase a truly “Turn Key” down-east beauty! Call or email to have a copy of her most recent survey report!   Owner/Builder Comments: I have been building  custom boats for about 20 years, every thing from canoes to cruisers ( I figure about 15 boats over all)  I have taken around ten classes at the wooden boat school in Maine where I met Bob Stephens he was my first instructor . Bob works as the chief designer for the Brooklin Boat Yard . When I decided to build my own cruiser I contacted Bob , and the Martha V. is the result of our collaboration .                                                     As for the Martha Vs Construction She is cold molded. Her hull is four layers of Cedar the first layer is half inch atlantic white cedar tongue & groove set for and aft fastened with bronze screws , followed by three layers of one eight inch Spanish cedar set in epoxy and vacuumed bagged on .She is sheeted in 10 oz cloth also set on epoxy. ( makes for a tough light hull)  Her structural members ( engine stringers, deck beams, floor timbers ect.) are all old growth vertical grain douglas fir . the bulkheads and decks are Okume marine ply sheeted in dynel cloth . Her cabin trunk , combings , and cabinets are all mahogany .  All fastenings are bronze as well as her rudder , strut , trough hulls ,ect.   The design hinged around my desire to have a vessel that could handle the intercoastal waterways yet be small enough to trailer to the bigger lakes in the north east . There are many large lakes up here that are wonderful to explore by boat .  The V. ( as I call her) has proven to be more than I could have hoped for at filling her design purpose. As for my travels with her she has been all over the ny canal system the hudson river most of your fine chesapeake bay and many of the lager lake of witch I eluded to . One aspect that i didn’t anticipate was no mater where i have taken her people seek her out to ask me about her (kind of cool ).
