Miss Nina is a 61’ wooden pilothouse ketch, designed by Phil Bolger and built at the legendary Story Shipyard in Essex Massachusetts. She has a very comfortable open seating area in the stern, and a large airy pilothouse with excellent visibility for a warm comfortable escape from the occasionally inhospitable Maine weather. It is an ideal place to escape the sun, eat a meal or congregate and relax around the large teak dinette.
Her wide open foredeck is a great place to sunbathe, or when the wind pipes up, to catch a little salt spray. Below deck is a large open galley with a second dinette, a soapstone woodstove, settee area, and usually some kind of exquisite food in preparation.
The guest head, or marine toilet, is brand new and in a large open private space. It will look and act a lot like the bathroom at home. She has almost seven feet of headroom throughout her cabins, and is very bright and airy with large windows and great ventilation.
She carries over 1,200 square feet of sail, and is a stable and comfortable boat when the wind is up. For our up river trips, and on the lazy still days that sometimes strike when there’s someplace to go, she has very quiet and efficient twin engines, and will motor along at eight knots without breaking a sweat. She is graceful and elegant in design and construction, and has been recently renovated for carrying a never crowded maximum of six passengers over the breathtaking rivers and bays of mid-coast Maine.
