Persephone is a 1978 solid fiberglass Webber Cove hull with a 2004 entire rebuild by the Newman & Gray Boatyard on Cranberry Island, Maine, for her present owner. Her layout below exhibits superb craftsmanship and use of space. She is a comfortable cruiser for two and a picnic boat for many with her large cockpit and swim platform. A modernized yet traditional Downeast Maine-built boat looking for a new home. We highly recommend her.
