1928 Chesapeake 72 ft Chesapeake Buy Boat COASTAL QUEEN
COASTAL QUEEN is a truly Vintage, Chesapeake Buy Boat. Vintage defines any product that grows finer and more valuable over time and without a doubt, COASTAL QUEEN embodies this distinction. Originally built in 1928 by A.V. Price in Maryland and professionally operated as an oyster buy boat until 1958, she was purchased by boatbuilder and yachtsman Slade Dale, converted into a cruising yacht and renamed, COASTAL QUEEN. Since then she has lived her name to the fullest, plying the waters from the Bahamas to Eastern Maine, St. Lawrence Seaway and Mississippi River, turning heads in every port of call.
25 years ago she was purchased by an extremely accomplished racing sailor, as the ‘mothership’ for his yacht. In short order, she became the mothership of the Fleet, and the social hub of every regatta she attended!
The iconic Coastal Queen at 90 years old, has a fully sound wood hull and structure, proven machinery, modern electronics and three decks of gracious accommodations. She is indeed, a Vintage yacht that has matured to near perfection through the years.
