This Concordia Sheila type yawl - 'Design No. 14', originally commissioned by George Cheston, was completed in 1951 by Abeking & Rasmussen of Germany and christened Moorea. The original order and design specifications for this vessel are archived at the Mystic Seaport Museum. Copies are available for viewing in person at our office.
Now named Never Again, this well maintained classic sailing yacht has always been winter-stored indoors in a dirt floor shed that holds many classic wooden boats. It's last survey was in 2006 and it was a very good one. All recommended items have been addressed since then. The survey and recent visual inspection indicate that the vessel is in very good structural and mechanical condition.
Concordia yawls not only turn heads on the water, their owners become a part of American sailing history. Inspections available by appointment.
