About this Custom Downeast F/B Cruiser


This new boat was built by Robert (Chummy) Rich Jr. of the Bass Harbor Boat Shop, Maine.  He has been building boats for many years, starting out in his father's shop, and has spent the past few years building this one with his brother, Walter.  She is a traditional Downeast boat with modern amenities, berths for 4, full galley, and an enclosed head with separate shower.  Her layout is open and bright with many opening windows, hatches, and overhead lights throughout.  She runs quietly with a nice steady ride going through the water. If you are looking for an up-to-date well-built Downeast boat with some style to cruise the coast, she is in the water and well worth your consideration.


This boat was built by Chummy Rich over 2-3 years.  Cedar planking over oak frames and backbone. Painted fir cockpit sole and glass over marine plywood decks, cabin and shelter tops. The only exterior varnish is the aft door into the salon and the flybridge ladder treads. The flybridge helm area offers good seating and excellent views.  Custom stainless steel sheathing on stern post and skeg to access cutlass bearing and rudder post.
