SEA-FEVER

Custom cabin cruiser designed in down east “built up” style and built 1966 by Herbert Baum Boatbuilder in Kennebunk, Maine. Built for Leighton Chevrolet owner in York Maine as sport fishing boat; twin Corvette engines were originally used and replaced in 1995 with Chrysler marine engines. Also large side trunk cabin windows are unusual and similar to Rich designs of same era. Boat was completely rebuilt/refastened (bronze screws) in 2002-2004 by Paul Rollins Boatbuilder in York, Me.; new custom mahogany trim, toe rails and rails with S/S rub rails, new decks, windows, hydraulic steering, pumps, electronics, shore power, aluminum gas tanks, new gas lines and exhausts, garboard plus one planks, sistered ribs, many new butt blocks, new props. Very pretty classic Maine boat.

5/4 mahogany carvel planks on steam bent 2″ x 1 1/2″ oak ribs, oak keel, bronze rudders, 1 1/4″ SS shafts, 19 x 16 four blade props. Cabin tops/decks are marine plywood double layer 1/2′ covered with fiberglass, self draining cockpit with large stern scuppers, sleeps 4, head, galley. Although classic in downeast design (3.6:1), with her twin engines she is capable of planing at 3000 RPM and achieving speeds of 25-30 knots! Sea-Fever spent all her years in the Kennebunk area until 2012 when her latest (#9) owner moved her to Cove Landing in Hamburg Cove CT.
