1985 Wauquiez Amphitrite
"Rebecca Ann" is one of the cleanest vessels this broker has seen. She has been maintained to the highest standards and updated and improved as needed. The Amphitrite was built by Henry Wauquiez and designed by Holman and Pye of the UK for an extremely stiff boat. She will maintain full sails in comfort up to 22 knots apparent wind to windward. Her design is very seaworthy and they are known for their comfortable motion through the water. Her underbody lends to excellent sailing performance with a cutaway forefoot, extended fin keel and a skeg hung rudder. Though she may have the room of a motorsailer she performs like a sailboat should, even giving good performance in light air. She is stable in a following sea and her ketch rig allows one to divide the sail area for maximum performance and comfort. "Rebecca Ann" has spent her entire life on the Chesapeake Bay but she is capable of sailing around the world. She is ready to take her next owners on an adventure of a lifetime where ever they may want to cruise.
Note: She had a survey done for insurance in Dec. of 2016. Before being launched in 2017 the owner took care of all the issues that were found, though they were minimal.
