What could be better than a beautiful Sparkman & Stephens designed custom built yacht!

This is a terrific vessel and an amazing value. She was built by one of the finest custom builders in the US in Wilmington NC. Bennett Brothers Yachts. Each vessel is custom built to the owners’ specifications and this particular boat is a stand out yacht. Her first owners from Long Island NY commissioned her and spared no expense in her construction. They loved and cruised lightly mostly in Long Island Sound with a couple sailing adventures to Bermuda. When they were done sailing twenty years later, they completely refit the vessel to make her as beautiful as the day they launched her. The even replaced the teak and holly cabin sole and headliners as well as refinishing the Cherry interior. Every system was gone over with a fine toothed comb to make her perfect. The new Stars and Stripes Awlgrip paint job on the topsides made Escape Velocity incredibly beautiful .This is no ordinary 1992 vessel. Her owners donated her to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and eventually she was offered for sale. Her current owners where the lucky recipient and they have carried on to maintain the boat in ship shape condition.

Of course you know that any boat designed by Sparkman and Stevens will sail as beautifully as she looks. This is a performance cruiser with liveaboard comfort. The underbody is very modern with a wing fin keel and a spade rudder. The hand laid fiberglass hull and sandwich deck construction give her a  moderate displacement. The sail plan with a Furlboom mainsail system and furling headsails give her the power to move while being easily sailed by a couple. The wing keel provides great stability with  shoal draft nice in the Bahamas and other spots on the East Coast. With her 64 foot mast height she is just intercoastal capable at about 64. Mind the wind and tide, but she can do it. We like having a choice sometimes.

Escape Velocity is a luxurious the stateroom center cockpit yacht. There is plenty of space for a couple and guests or a small family. The master stateroom aft has the sought after centerline queen berth and ensuite head and stall shower. The forward cabin is large with a true V-berth and wonderful cabinetry. The salon is spacious and comfortable with a dining table for eight. The cherry interior joinery is elegant and the interior is thoughtfully finished with lovely upholstery and beddings. It is a home!  Her owners have enjoyed living aboard and light cruising in the Bahamas in the East Coast for the last four years. They have loved and cared for Escape Velocity. .

Escape Velocity is enroute to Annapolis and once more offered for sale. She is a spectacular value and completely ready for the next owner to step aboard. Escape Velocity is owned by responsible sailors and she is polished and ship shape from top to bottom.

Recent Maintenance Includes:

  • Beautiful new cockpit enclosure and hatch covers
  • Wind generator
  • Solar panels
  • Outboard lifting crane
  • Improved davit system
  • New chain! 125’ GH3/8th chain
  • Engine maintenance and going over with new engine mounts
