DIRECTION

DIRECTION was launched in 1966 at Paul E. Luke’s famous boatyard in East Boothbay, Maine, one of the last wooden boats to come from the yard prior to their move into aluminum construction. She was custom-designed and -built for her NYC owner who used her for coastal cruising and annual trips to Bermuda and the West Indies, hence the keel/centerboard specification.

K. Aage Nielsen design and oversight, 8,200 man hours at Luke’s, double-planked mahogany construction, custom Ted Hood aluminum spars and an offshore layout below prepared her well for years of cruising. She changed hands twice on the East coast before heading to the Pacific Northwest in the mid-'90s and is now with her fifth owner/steward in Canadian waters off Vancouver Island.
