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!
