A unique chance to own a piece of West Coast history with documented Hollywood provenance, 'Vivienne' is a classic bridge deck cruiser that has been boathouse kept for over 75 years, and in the same family for 54 years before her extensive restoration.

An exceptionally rare find, 'Vivienne'  recaptures the charm and elegance of a bygone era, collectible as both a work of art and as a jewel of the famed Stephens Brothers Yard, of Stockton, California.

As one of the premier yacht builders in the United States at that time, Stephens Brothers operated from 1902 to 1987 becoming esteemed amongst vintage vessel collectors today for their elegantly designed and high quality pleasure craft with many of their original drawings and photographs on display at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA

'Vivienne' was built in 1930 for the famous Hollywood screenwriter, Harvey Thew, known for his Warner Brothers work "The Man from Blankley's" and "The Mad Genius" starring John Barrymore; the classic gangster film "Public Enemy" starring James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson's "Silver Dollar".  Harvey went on to write for MGM and Paramount.

With over $200,000 invested in her custom restoration by her current owners, who specialize in classic yacht restoration and interiors, 'Vivienne' is now being offered at a point in her refit where her new owners can customize her interior finishes to their own tastes, fit and finish.  

The current owners remain available to assist in her completion if desired, and the boat house in which 'Vivienne' is currently kept is also available for rent to a new owner.

Highlights:

  • Port Orford Cedar over bent White Oak frames
  • New Purple Heart floor framing
  • Teak decking
  • Bronze fastened with new keel bolts
  • New worm shoe of Iron Bark
  • Completely rebuilt 300 HP twin Sea Master Ford engines
  • New fuel and water tanks
  • All hardware re-chromed
  • Custom Pearl hull paint job ($35,000)
  • Full documentation of 18 month professional refit available
