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.
