Bill grew up sailing the Great Lakes and has been sailing the Chesapeake/East Coast for the past 30+ years. Phoenix is his latest rebuild, having completed a Yorktown 39 from bare hull to rig design/installation nearly 20 years ago.
Elisa was new to sailing and boat building when she and Bill met, though she grew up in and around the water as a competitive swimmer for more than 20 years. Bill's passion for sailing was contagious, and Elisa was up for the adventure and challenge that cruising life offers!
Together we have sailed and worked on countless boats -- Albacore, Balboa, Bristol, Cape Dory, Catalina, Cheoy Lee, Columbia, Irwin, Rainbow to name a few!
Though this rebuild is taking longer than expected, it is almost time to stop building and start cruising! We're inching closer to our goal, casting off, and heading to warmer climes with bluer water.
