Stephens was known for almost a century as one of the premier American boat builders; they were the West coast equivalent of Trumpy or Burger. Begining in the early 1900s with small wood runabouts, by 1980 they were building beautiful custom aluminum yachts of which Cheyenne is a prime example.
Built for an experienced local yachtsman, she spent her first 15 years in a covered fresh water berth and has had nothing but the best of care since. Most recently this involved what was reported to be a million dollar major refit in the late 1990's which included being stripped to bare metal and Awlgripped,a major overhaul of the engines and gen sets and an all new interior. Note she's a remarkably sea kindly vessel with full stabilization, air conditioning and sound systems in all of her four staterooms.
Also note she's lying in a Sausalito Yacht Harbor slip that might transfer; there's a wait of many years for a slip in the Sausalito Yacht Harbor, especially for big slips with views, so this is a material benefit if you're able to take advantage.
Vessel is realistically priced by a motivated seller, offers encouraged.

The entire hull was stripped down to bare metal in the late 1990s for all new paint and fairing on the exterior. The entire interior was also stripped and completely refinished. Flybridge modified. Sound proofing under cockpit. All visible fasteners are isolated with nylon bushings. Cheyenne has had terrific care all of her life, starting with original owner who kept her under shed in the fresh water of the California delta. The second owner purchased her in October of 1995. The boat went immediately to the shipyard for complete repaint, new interior and mechanical services. Two years later Cheyenne emerged as the best example of a Stepehns pedigreed yacht. The third owner now offers her for sale with a Sausalito available slip.
