Douce Amie, this lovely little Rhodes daysailer, was originally built in 1947, number 524, at the Brigham Shipyard in Greenport Long Island. Most of Douce Amie’s life was spent sailing the shores of Connecticut and New York, only recently did the boat find it’s way to Maine. She received an extensive restoration at Old Lyme Marina during the winter of 1999/2000. Restoration included repowering with a reconditioned Yanmar 1gm 10, new fuel tank, batteries and electrical. Onboard electronics include an Icom VHF, Garmin small chart plotter, and she comes with a road ready Triad trailer.
Her sails were new in 2000 and include a mainsail, large and smaller jib set on a fractional rig. She has a Harken roller furler making her sails very simple to set and furl.
She has been most recently owned by a talented woodworker who has kept the boat up nicely and in ready to sail condition.
The boat is offered with a road ready Triad trailer. In Maine, listed for $27K.
