SAIL OWNER POW­ERS UP

Yachts International - - Making Waves -

con­struc­tion is un­der­way at New Eng­land Boat­works on Con­tra­band, a 94-foot (28.7-me­ter) alu­minum mo­to­ry­acht for New­port Ship­yard owner char­lie Dana. Con­tra­band is the yard’s largest build to date and is ex­pected to be a world-cruiser, just like the Dana fam­ily’s sail­ing yacht, the 70-foot, Ted Hood-de­signed alu­minum ketch Saint Roque— one of the first yachts New Eng­land Boat­works built, some 22 years ago. Since then, New Eng­land Boat­works has part­nered in the pur­chase of New­port Ship­yard, sold its por­tion of the busi­ness and be­come a reg­u­lar sub­con­trac­tor. neboat­works.com
