This classic wooden yacht was built in 1959 by the Bunker & Ellis Boatyard in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Her twin Volvo diesel engines have only 800 hours and are professionally maintained annually. The craftsmanship of her woodwork, inside and out, is exceptional, as is the finish. She has been owned and sailed by three families in Northeast Harbor and Winter Harbor during her 60+ years and is in excellent condition throughout. She has always been captain and yard maintained with inside storage and summer use only. Jibgen offers elegant, spacious, and seaworthy boating in classic style!
