OWNER'S COMMENTS: A living piece of art with a storied provenance, PHOENIX was built in Old Saybrook along the CT River in 1966 at the peak of wooden boat craftsmanship. She was designed by Winthrop "Wink" Warner and built by Seth Persson. Initially she was to be named Hexerie until fire destroyed Seth's boatyard. Townspeople backed Seth, who employed and mentored local young men, and a new boatyard was built. Phoenix was the first boat built after the fire (see Wooden Boat, Jan/Feb 2011. Number 218. p62. "Seth Perrson" by Caryn B. Davis). Early on she was a charter boat in the Caribbean and according to a brochure visited the Virgin Islands, Grenada, St. Martins, Martinique as well as the Bahamas and many others. In the 80's she was soloed across the Atlantic to the Mediterranean twice. She's a sturdy, Cutter rigged boat with 5/4 Honduran mahogany on steamed white oak frames 12" oc. In the 90's she cruised the islands of Penobscot Bay and after that, she's been knocking around southern New England primarily Narragansett Bay and Block Island. She's a thrill to sail and hits her stride on a broad reach. With an 8000 lb lead keel she is in the water rather than on it and gives a steady, ship­ like ride. She is also a real "eye catcher". She receives many compliments in every harbor she frequents.


BROKER'S COMMENTS: PHOENIX is a "classic" full-keel Cutter with an impressive pedigree, designed by Winthrop "Wink" Warner and built by the renowned Seth Persson in 1966, best-known as the builder of Carlton Mitchell's famous FINISTERRE. She is an outstanding example of American craftsmanship and seaworthiness, a previous owner having made two Trans Atlantic crossings. Two surveys are available upon request; done in 2013 and 2017. Please call us to inspect this very well maintained cutter, which has been lovingly cared for by her present owner of 10 years. Thank you for your interest.
