62′ Sparkman & Stephens motorsailerWB No. 225STILL AVAILABLE
After growing up racing Six-Meter sloops and moving up right after World War II to a 20-year ownership of a big keel racing sloop, Commodore Henry S. Morgan commissioned this lovely centerboard motorsailer to become his third yacht named DJINN . She remained under Morgan ownership for two decades, always admired for being well run and beautifully maintained. It’s evident from her generous rig and outside steering station that Morgan was a sailorman at heart. For her type, this boat is way more sail than power.
Her fourth and present owner, who renamed her GRACE, began a thorough refit—so thorough, in fact, that it remains to be completed. It’s a saga of passion, perfection, and hope that I wish could be related here. But the upshot is that a grand opportunity awaits anyone wanting a yacht of this type to take over and continue to completion.
DJINN/GRACE is in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, just minutes from the airport. For more information or to make a visit, contact owner Greg Kelchner at kelmarine AT yahoo DOT com or 954–609–5619.
