This 26 Webbers Cove Downeast Cruiser is a first-rate example of the sturdy, seaworthy design that typifies a Maine built hull.  She combines the rugged and tough capabilities of a lobster boat design with the spaciousness and comfort of a family cruiser.  Wonderfully seaworthy and charming, this vessel is exceptionally well cared for and equally suited for single handling, a couples getaway, or for family gatherings.
            Built in New Brunswick Maine and designed by Spencer Lincoln and John Cousins the hull is stable and beamy.  Her prow provides a fine entry with plenty of flare for that classic downeast ride; whether you are trolling or at cruise this boat is a skippers dream.  Take on a chop or beam sea in comfort without losing a rod or passenger overboard!  For the serious fisherman this is a great platform to take on the shallows or the deep with her shallow draft, full skeg, plentiful rod holders and extended range via an 80 gallon baffled aluminum fuel tank in traditional lobster boat design.
            Cruising in the 17 knot range, with her newly painted 150ho Volvo diesel, will get you excellent fuel economy (6gph) and have you at your destination in plenty of time to enjoy some R&R on the hook or you can throttle back and just enjoy the ride at a times-gone-by leisurely pace.  Dont let the 26 waterline length fool you; she is BEAMY! add the 2 swim platform, wide helm seats, spacious cockpit with room for customized seating arrangements, teak and mahogany trimmed cabin with enclosed head, ample storage, full galley and a good sized V-berth and you have a first rate vessel that makes for comfortable cruising both near and far.  With pulpit and high SS rails you can even use the forward deck as a sun pad or anglers casting perch.
            Sea Turtle is as rugged and stately as her name implies.  She has been professionally maintained and her owner has spared no expense to improve design elements for this one-of-a-kind vessel.  Notably, engine bay access has been drastically improved providing for ample 360o access that will be a pleasure for owner and mechanic alike.  The bilge was recently refinished with easypoxy and the new canvas enclosure and mooring cover can button her up tight.  A customized stern table flips over to fillet table and cleanup is easy for both you and the boat with saltwater wash down and a coveted hot/cold fresh water stern shower!
            This is one special boat a venerable downeaster.  Offered at a tremendous value, she is a gem and a super boat for the knowledgeable buyer or the first time boat owner.  White with tastefully done blue markings she looks great at the dock or underway.  Step aboard and you wont miss the excellent build quality.  Descend into the cozy cabin and you wont miss the ample amenities.  Wait too long and you will miss the boat!  Offers considered 7ft zodiac included in sale.
