1961 Burger Motor Yacht – 72’

“Patriot” is a magnificent example of a custom mid-century motor yacht.  Since 1863, Burger Boat Company has been the oldest and most respected custom luxury yacht builder in America.  Step back in time when cruising aboard “Patriot”, originally built as “Sis W” for the Walgreen family in the exquisite Jack Hargrave design. Woodwork is Honduran mahogany, birds eye maple, and black lacquered highlights, with teak and holly floors throughout.  Ample indoor and outdoor space for social distancing while relaxing or entertaining on the cockpit, large deck, the spacious fly bridge or in one of two temperature-controlled salons.  “Patriot” was refitted in 1993, 2003, and 2021.

1976 Bruno & Stillman Down East Yacht – 42’

“Independence” is a particularly elegant version of the classic Bruno & Stillman 42’ downeast motor yacht.  Designed by renowned naval architect Royal Lowell, the Bruno & Stillman 42’ is considered one of the finest examples of the downeast style and can be seen in harbors throughout New England on both working fishing vessels and pleasure craft. Bruno & Stillman produced over 400 comparable boats in the early 1970s and was the leading provider of this type of boat, the authentic predecessor to the modern versions we see from Hinckley and Sabre. Independence was launched in 1976, the bicentennial anniversary of American independence, and features extensive brightwork of varnished mahogany and an extended refinished salon for a luxury cruising experience.
