OWNER’S COMMENTS: ENDURANCE has been lovingly restored and improved by her current owners for the past 16 years. During winters in New England, Endurance is stored inside at Great Bay Marina in New Hampshire. When she is occupied in winters in North Carolina, she has three forms of heat, a diesel furnace, a wood stove, and an air conditioner heat pump. She has cruised the East coasts of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts as well as made the long journey from New Hampshire to North Carolina and back several times. Her present owners have immensely enjoyed their cruising times aboard Endurance and have found her to be strong and sturdy and a very cozy and comfortable yacht. In her youth, ENDURANCE was the cover girl for a 1968 issue of Motor Boating Magazine.
