As detailed above this vessel has been brought up to very high standards by the current owner. She has been used almost entirely for private pleasure sailing from as far north as Newfoundland, off shore to Bermuda and the Caribbean and several trips up and down the east coast both out side and via the intercostal waterway. Many years were spent sailing the North east coast from Connecticut to Nova Scotia with the vessel hauled out for the winter.
Sailing under her CERTIFICATE OF INSPECTION (a C0I is required of all US vessels carrying more than 6 paying passengers) has been limited to infrequent back-up to the CONNECTICUT RIVER MSEUM'S primary sailing vessel and infrequent participation in museum related acitivities.
The COI is of obvious importance to prospective buyers interested in operating a business carrying more than 6 passengers, But for all prospective buyers the Certificate is of great value in that all the many changes, improvements and rebuilds have had to meet federal T Boat standards and pass close examination of the work by well trained USCG safety inspectors.
It should also be noted that Yankee is an extremely comfortable live aboard with central heating, a fully equiped galley, separate large fridge and freezer. micro wave, propane stove.etc. There are two separate heads one forward and one aft each with it's own shower.
