AMELIA, our demonstrator PAINE 14, has found a new home. We will miss her but the more of them that are built, the more beautiful our harbors will become.

Must be something in the water- also this July two more PAINE 15s have been ordered from French & Webb of Belfast, Maine, for delivery next Spring. The PAINE 15 is a slightly larger version of the 14. They will be built in WEST System cold molded construction, and trimmed with varnished teak or mahogany. Needless to say they are not inexpensive, but utterly beautiful.

ANDREW WYETH’s 100th BIRTHDAY

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

We are all celebrating what would have been Andrew Wyeth’s hundredth birthday here on the coast of Maine. The boat depicted here was designed by Mark Fitzgerald at Paine Yacht Design as an 80th birthday present from his wife Betsy. He used Home Free to commute from the mainland to his studio out on Benner Island until his death at aged 90.
