"Piece of Eight" is a well maintained launch designed for stability, based on the Casco Bay Hampton, a lobster boat built by Charlie Gomes through the 1950s. Charlie Gomes' Hamptons were work boats, and Dick Pulsifer began building Hamptons following the original design back in the mid 70's.
This beautiful boat is hull no. 64 and is a 25th anniversary boat. She has been customized with bronze stern stantions and bronze framework for the forward benches. Armada satin coating on interior surfaces, decks, and rub rails.
Powered with a Yanmar 3GM, 27HP with a mere 469 hours. In the last two years, her improvements include wood refinish and repair of the deck, addition of the depth/fish finder, and a wooden captain's chair.
Please click on FULL SPECS for additional information and photographs. Available to be seen at your convenience. Slip or mooring available at Frank Hall Boat Yard on the Pawcatuck River in Westerly, Rhode Island. NO SALES TAX on boats purchased and kept in the state of Rhode Island.
