Rarely does a truly spectacular boat come on the market and Jessie Marie is definitely one of those
boats. Current owner purchased her in March of 2016 from her second owner to participate to the
2018 Golden Globe circumnavigation race, unfortunately he was afflicted by a lower back condition
during the summer 2016 Atlantic crossing that caused him to withdraw from the race.
She spent the first 23 years of her life in Chesapeake Bay as a one owner boat. The second owner,
purchased her in 2010, cruised her to the Bahamas and in Florida. The boat reached the current owner in pristine condition, and has significantly improved in his ownership. The boat has no history of osmosis. Has copper clad epoxy finish applied in the 90’s.
She was re-fitted and upgraded in Florida in April of 2016 with an eye to the race, making her a world class blue water boat with systems and backup systems that are essential and engineered beautifully, she is ready to circumnavigate in comfort and safety several times. There are invoices in excess of 60,000 US$ for gear and in excess of 30,000 US$ for labour dated between April and May of 2016, available for inspection. She underwent a second major refit in 2017, when teak deck was removed and all deck fittings rebedded on a gelcoat antiskid surface, mast removed stripped and repainted, and the deck plan was redesigned with new and upgraded hardware, all tracks changed and two new ones added. See above 2017 re-fit. The Sail inventory is as varied and as good as possible. The woodwork is done to heirloom standards. Jessie Marie would cost a lot to replace, and is very sensibly priced for a new owner that wants to sail oceans, cover miles in safety and comfort. The discerning blue water sailor, looking for a safe, strong, seaworthy, exceptionally fitted and maintained blue water boat should have Jessie Marie. She is theiIdeal plug and play boat for a serious cruising couple.
