This classic Downeast power boat was built by Ralph Stanley for his father to captain for a summer family on Mount Desert Island and to lobster during the winter season. She has been sailed for both pleasure and commercial purposes throughout the years. She was designed by Ralph with an eye for good looks and efficiency. She has been well maintained in recent years and will make a new owner very happy with her smooth sailing and good maneuverability. She represents the graceful lines and design of Downeast Maine boats. We recommend her highly.
