Russell Yachts, Morehead City NC
Russ Russell owns the yard, called Shepard's Point Boatworks, to whom you've spoken. I can highly recommend Russ and his crew as dependable, knowledgable, and as straight up as they come. It is not a big yard, but right downtown on the waterfront of Morehead, close to amenities. Being smaller than most yards, they perform more efficiently than most. I think you'll find them to be to your liking.
Regards, and safe passages!
