Overview

Owner's Comments:

Misty, a classic 39-foot Concordia yawl, #66 (of 99 Concordias built at Abeking and Rasmussen) was shipped from Bremen, Germany in 1959, and immediately left New Bedford for Chicago via the Erie Canal with the owners, the MacIntosh family. She remained on the Great Lakes for 45 years in the care of the same family. During that time, she competed in distance racing, and even won the Chicago-Mackinaw Race in the early 80s. Her racing equipment reflects their commitment to boat speed and ease of handling. She was kept in showroom condition at the Palmer Johnson Yacht Yard.

 

In 2006 Misty returned to New England and received a major update including new Yanmar engine, plumbing, electronics, and new standing rigging, at the Concordia Yard, and at Strouts Point Wharf in Freeport Maine.

 

Fresh Paint and Varnish have been professionally applied every year. Garboard Planks have been replaced, and sister frames have been placed as necessary. In 2010 she received a new rudder and rudder heel fitting, both fabricated at Strouts Point Wharf.

 

For the last ten years, she has appeared regularly at the WoodenBoat School, Maine, as an exemplar Concordia classroom, teaching adults in “the Craft of Sail,” and the fine points of sailing a traditional yawl. She has also raced regularly in the famous Eggemoggin Reach Regatta. Misty’s current owner is long experienced in the care and management wooden sailboats; she has moved on to a larger boat in the Mediterranean.

Broker comments:

Misty is a "sailor's Concordia", and as outlined below, the two  previous owners appreciated her and gave her excellent care.  Her third and only other owner is an especially competent yachts woman, and this is her second Concordia yawl.  Recently repowered and updated, and with a large sail inventory, Misty has had loving, knowledgeable care, and is highly recommended.
