The lines of the 36' Jarvis Newman hull are taken directly from the Bunker & Ellis boat IRONA, and this hull was finished off in 1979 by James Rich in exact Bunker & Ellis "picnic boat" tradition, making this a wonderful example of a Down East boat. She has been lightly and lovingly used, professionally maintained. She is a painted boat, easy on maintenance.
THERE IS NOT A MORE CLASSIC DOWNEAST KEEL BOAT THEN THE JARVIS NEWMAN 36 AND APHRODITE HAS ALL THE PEDIGREE OF DESIGNER, BUILDER AND FINISHER THAT WILL SATISFY LOVERS OF DOWNEAST BOATS.
