One sailing vessel is named Mistress. Mistress is a 42' Hallberg-Rassy, known far and wide for its sturdy construction, superb craftsmanship and signature seaworthiness. Mistress is designed to carry 10 passengers, is easy to handle and globally respected for its elegant lines and spirited performance.  It is a comfortable sailboat enjoyed by young children to folks in their 90s.  Mistress sleeps 7 people and has all the comforts of home.  Very comfortable both below and above deck.  There is a heater that keeps the boat warm when needed.  Pictures of her are shown in the Photo Gallery below and throughout this website.

One sailing vessel is named Astrea. Astrea is a 40' OC Hinckley. With a family tradition of quality boat building behind him and a standard of "cruising perfection" in mind Hank Hinckley designed the OC 40 as the first in a series of yachts to be built by his company in Bar Harbor, Maine. The OC 40 was conceived and designed as a 40 foot cruising yacht to be easily handled by two people.  Pictures of her are shown in the Astrea Photo Gallery below.
