The Essence (Pic 2010)

The "Essence", one of two 28', 3-layer plywood, Ray Hunt designed "minimum yachts" built in Kennebunkport, ME in the late '50s or early '60s.

Hull design is said to have inspired Richard Bertram's 'deep-vee' hulls.

She has been severely neglected and may require extensive (read expensive) restoration.

Currently sitting on her own trailer (needs tires), uncovered.

No engines or outdrives.

Two previously-installed Volvo-Penta 6-cyl. gas engines available separately.

Located in my backyard, buyer responsible for all moving costs.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
