1999 Dog Star Ketch

New Brunswick, Canada

C$36,900

In the competitive yacht design market of the ‘30s and ‘40s, ‘Dog Star’ was Phil Rhodes’ answer to the famous Tahiti Ketch by John Hannah. This boat is rare indeed, as she is, by wooden boat standards, relatively new: 1999. She is well built, simply appointed and she has cruised in safety and comfort from Newfoundland.
