Truly inspired updates and extensive renovations favor this authentic downeast 1974 Penobscot classic. Polaris is now a successful blend of experience, form and function. Hull and deck were completely and professionally fiberglassed in 2000 using the popular C -FLEX sheathing system; which involves layers of mat and woven saturated with Vinylester resin that bonds chemically and mechanically to the hull, achieving a smooth, watertight durable finish. Hull faired perfectly and painted with Awlgrip products. New rub rails and toe rails of Mahogany. The quality of all this work is evident, and has resulted in an impressive, solid cruising yacht; attractive, dry and free of maintenance issues. Yacht finish and care to modern standards- with this legendary 1974 Penobscot Fifty Fathom design.
