Hull Material


1978 50′ Meta Damien II Schooner ‘Daphnae’

‘Daphnae’  is a serious, strong, shorthanded offshore schooner which is in fully sound and good condition ready to sail anywhere in the temperate world.  She has strong rigging, strong hull, strong motor, and good sails and running rigging. Her hull is in great shape, was built FULLY GALVANIZED and has always been maintained.

This is not a hurricane or restoration boat, she is just a good boat, that has had a good life and is for sail at a fair price.

With her split rig, her lifting keel and rudder, and her seaworthy shape, she is a boat that can really take you places… And in style, at a fair cost. There is also the possibility to continue working the Sea Scout program each summer for the right buyer. 

‘Daphnae’ was a one owner boat for the first for 30 years, then was bought by a film company and used for movie, then in 2018 current owner bought from film company and did a refit for working in the Sea Scout program and cruising the rest of the year. Fresh Bottom job, new zincs and new mast steps installed 2021.  In good condition throughout.
