Recently described by Jon Wilson, Founder of WoodenBoat magazine as "exquisite," adding "an inspiring example of Nielsen's extraordinary gift of suffusing grace and beauty with speed and power."

If you dream of coastal cruising or racing aboard an easily handled classic that has "had everything done" in terms of restoration work and ongoing maintenance, LEVERA (Ex. PASSAGE, Ex. GOLDEN HIND) may be just the boat you've been waiting for. 

She boasts nothing but the finest in terms of design, construction, and materials, and represents the highest possible standard of fit and finish both on deck and under the floorboards. A recent survey will attest to the lavish restoration and maintenance she has received in recent years.  

Designed by the legendary naval architect K. Aage Nielsen, LEVERA is design No. 324-D and was built at the Paul E. Luke yard in East Boothbay, ME in 1966 (hull No. 71).  She was constructed using only the best materials: her double planked hull is of a cedar inner layer and mahogany outer, fastened to laminated white oak frames with bronze screws.  Large oak floors and a bronze reinforced mast step support her original aluminum mast.  An oak keel with laminated mahogany stem and forefoot all go to make LEVERA strong, seaworthy, and a joy to own.  Lift the floorboards and you will see that her keel, frames and floors are in "as new" condition. 

She'll walk past a Concordia Yawl on the race course, offers luxurious and comfortable  accommodations, and receives compliments wherever she goes.  LEVERA is a must see for anyone considering a classic who wants to be competitive on the race course or cruise in comfort (or both!).  Having been owned by dedicated owners and receiving only the best care, she's in excellent condition and receives our highest recommendation.

As of June 2020 LEVERA is fully commissioned and sailing out of Brooklin, ME ready to be viewed and sea trialed.  Please call or email for more photo's and a copy of the recent survey, or to arrange your inspection of this wonderful classic yacht.
