A living art piece with a storied provenance, Phoenix was built in Old Saybrook along the CT River in 1966 at the peak of wooden boat craftsmanship. She was designed by Winthrop "Wink" Warner and built by esteemed Seth Persson, well known as the builder of the famous S&S ocean-racing yawl FINISTERRE.

Initially she was to be named HEXERIE until fire destroyed Seth's boatyard. Townspeople backed Seth, who employed and mentored local young men, and a new boatyard was built. PHOENIX was the first boat built after the fire. Early on she was a charter boat in the Caribbean, and according to a brochure visited the Virgin Islands,Grenada, St.Martins, Martinique, as well as the Bahamas and many others. In the 80's she was soloed across the Atlantic to the Mediterranean twice.

She's a sturdy, Cutter rigger boat with 5/4 mahogany on steamed white oak frames 12" oc and spruce spars. In the 90's she cruised the islands of Penobscot Bay and after that she's been knocking around southern New England primarily Narragansett Bay and Block Island. She's a thrill to sail and gallops on a broad reach. With an 8000 lb lead keel she is in the water rather then on it and gives a steady, ship-like ride and she's an eye catcher. If you like compliments,you'll get them.

Anyone going on board PHOENIX will be surprised at the amount of room in her interior. She has attractive, shipshape lines and is comfortable throughout. She has received a considerable amount of upgrading in the last few years, including much work done at Rockport Marine and a new Yanmar diesel.

PHOENIX can be recommended as an excellent family cruiser for coastwise use. As she has crossed the Atlantic, she has already proven herself for offshore passages as well.
