Read this:


Actually the boat for sale is the one used in the last third of the circumnavigation (actual name was "Return of Dove". First Dove was destroyed in Hurricane where it was left on St Thomas.

From wikipedia:
Robin started his journey on the original Dove, a 24 foot Lapworth sloop. On reaching the Caribbean, Dove was replaced by Return of Dove, a 33 foot Allied Luders sloop.[2]

Dove sank in Hurricane Marilyn in 1995.

"The Return of Dove was found in Hawaii by Mark and Beverly Langley in 2000. They restored her in 2001. She was sold again in 2004 and is believed to be still in Hawaii.[3]"

Re: Famous Boat for Sale "Dove"

he boats: Dove and Return of Dove

Robin started his journey on the original Dove, a 24 foot Lapworth sloop. On reaching the Caribbean, Dove was replaced by Return of Dove, a 33 foot Allied Luders sloop.[2]

Dove sank in Hurricane Marilyn in 1995.

The Return of Dove was found in Hawaii by Mark and Beverly Langley in 2000. They restored her in 2001. She was sold again in 2004 and is believed to be still in Hawaii.[3] documentation isn't even mentioned?

The ad is trying to hard to sell the boat as famous but provides very little information otherwise.

I am 99.9% sure the boat for sale is "Return of Dove".

In 1981 I delivered a boat from Tampa Florida to St. Thomas. At that time I had not heard of the Dove story. A crew member looked to the boat docked next to us and said "look, it is the Dove". Next to us was the 24 foot 1st Dove. I later read the National Geographic articles.

Also for sale is the Monitor wind vane:

I read somthing a while back that said National Geographic was getting a little upset with Robin as there was not much action happening during his sail. I guess they wanted more typoons and such. I saw the movie over 25 years ago so don't remember much. I need to see it again. There were three issues of National Geographic and those articles were good.

Re: Famous Boat for Sale "Dove"

Followed the story, saw the movie. But that was many years ago. Robin Lee Graham moved on to another adventure in his life. What does any of that have to do with the value of the boat in this or any competitive market? Aside from the past commercial exposure it is not a vintage or pedigreed boat. Like anything else, it is worth only what it is worth to an informed, knowledgable, willing and capable buyer. Right move cassey1999, reduce price to develop a sale - IMHO
