Aquarama

Thanks to our friends at Classic Boat Magazine for this excellent report on Carlo Riva who died earlier in April. We once shared a video on TotalBoat Show that was very popular amongst our readers, and so once again in honor of the man himself, we share the video at the bottom of the page.

Restoring the Mathis Trumpy “Freedom”

Nestled between the super sheds of Hinckley and Hunt Yachts in Portsmouth RI is the more unassuming, yet equally impressive shed of McMillen Yachts. If you appreciate fine yacht restoration and the sweetness of American Motor Yachts – Trumpys, to be exact, then check out the painstaking attention to detail taken by the restoration experts at McMillen Yachts/ Mathis Yacht Building.

Under the leadership of classic yacht enthusiast, Earl McMillen, these guys have invented – or reinvented – the idea of fractional yacht ownership. Want a gorgeous classic yacht but don’t have 100% of the time or money required? Own a fraction of the yacht – and a beautiful yacht, at that. Check out the details on their website.

Then watch this video by Alison Langley of Maine (www.langleyphoto.com) about their restoration of Freedom and check out the write up they got on TotalBoat Show last year.  And then look for their spiffy yacht lineup all around the East Coast. Not just motor yachts, either – the 12 Meter “Onawa” is part of their collection, seen often sailing off Newport. Eye candy – all of it!

Enjoy!
