That is really amazing. For decades, Henry Nevis was one of the top boat builders in this country. When Hinckley was building production utility launches for the government, he was the 'go-to' yard for top build quality. Later Nevins built quite a few of the America's cup defenders of the 1950's and 1960's. I used to love to walk around his yard on City Island when I was a kid. I was in the 'secret shed' when Intrepid was being built under what passed for the tightest security in that era. By that time, the yard was an adjunct to Minnefords.

Nevin's yard was eventually sold to become condo's.

Polly is a piece of history. These old girls were amazing and would be a blast to own. Of course if you read the text, the owner suggests that it would require a couple hundred thousand to restore her. That's a shame since I can't imagine anyone doing that in these times but I've been wrong before.

Jeff

Skinny, just the way I like 'em.

She would be a blast to sail.

Replank/refasten below waterline would be under 100k if you had it done. Assuming no backbone problems.
She doesn't look hogged.

Denise, thanks for drawing my attention to this, I am deep in fantasy right now thinking about purchaising her and restoring her to like new. Henry nevins built some great boast, some wonderful schooners, of pwhich one is Mystics "Brilliant" . I worked for a builder here in Greenport and we had a sister ship Of Brelliant another Nevins schooner in our yard under restoration, she was owned by three doctors from Texas who halfway through, pulled the money plug and just walked away from her. We tried to donate her via wooden boat magazines " Save this Yacht" they usually feature on the lst pages of the magazine. I don't know what finnaly happened to her after the shop,'kORTCHMAR & wILNERS" finaaly had to close up after many years,starting in CityIsland, then Staten Island and Finally to Greenport. Hope someone takes interst in this clasic beauty. Rick

Maybe the Newport Restoration Foundation would have interest.

I would not call 49,000.00 cheap for its condition nor its heritage...In my limited experience reserve price is set very close if not at buy it now price.
