During the last 32 years we have owned traditional wood
gaff rigged sailing boats and then a Down East express
cruiser, all built in the 60’s. Great boats, and you might
imagine we have spent a lot of time in boat yards… some
great, others marginal for our needs. We are pleased to say
that Washburn’s falls into the “great” category.
While the Selene we bought was in good condition, dur-
ing this first major yard visit we had a goal of completing
timely maintenance and initiating some projects that
make her our “own”. Washburn’s delivered and in a very satisfying way… experts who executed well with a
real sense of pride in their workmanship and desire to make us satisfied.
On the business side, the deal was upfront and simple. The scheduling was executed well and the office staff
was topnotch... endearing, friendly support providing accurate and clear documentation of the work.
To put it simply, CHANGER will be a routine visitor to Washburn’s every year and we all will look forward
to the experience.
Well, we finally did it… kids out of college, sold the house, cars, and simplified our life… bought a 48’
Selene, CHANGER and committed to be full time liveaboards. So far during the first year, we have made two
good decisions, first, our boat choice has proven to be right
for us, and secondly, we visited Washburn’s Boat Yard.
