PHOENIX

The commuter yacht PHOENIX was designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Consolidated Shipbuilding in 1937. PHOENIX was one of several S&S/Consolidated commuters commissioned by E.E. Dickinson, the "Witch Hazel" magnate who like many industrialists of the time sped across Long Island Sound in this elegant yacht from his home in Connecticut to his office in the financial district of Manhattan. PHOENIX has made her home in Southern California for the past 30 years but is bound for Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Boothbay, Maine where under the experienced care of yard manager Eric Graves and his crew she will be stored for the winter during which time a comprehensive plan will be laid out to perform the necessary work to restore the boat. ~Sparkman & Stephens blog, Nov. 16, 2010
