Nimbie 30 yawl, 1987

  • Dorchester, MA

    This Nimble 30 hull #15 of 26 was built in 1987 and designed by Ted Brewer. Mr. Brewer owned one himself for many years. I love this boat, but I'm retiring and it's time for me to downsize. This is a double-ended yawl designed by Ted Brewer. Only about two dozen were built. Very traditional looks with a modern hull design. Emily Hope has a keel centerboard so she draws 2' 10" with the board up and 5' 6" with the board down. I installed a Beta Marine 16hp engine in 2015 and it has 120 hours. I replaced the fuel tank and hot water heater at the same time. The sails are like new. In addition to installing the new engine, I've done a bunch of projects (like replacing three through-hulls and rebuilding the skylight) and installed new parts (like a new jib furler and a new rudder). All of the exterior teak has been cleaned and oiled. FYI the mizzen mast is currently in storage, but can easily be stepped by one or two people.

  • Until very recently, I was sure this was my "forever" boat so I invested time and money accordingly. The boat is currently on the hard in Dorchester, MA. You could launch the boat here for free and sail it away!
