Description
Boston Whaler Sakonnet I thought I’d escaped having to do this! 24 months ago I was given the permission to purchase a sailing yacht on the proviso that another boat or toy had to go. I kept quiet and for the first time I let leaves cover the tarpaulin Hobo was sitting beneath in an attempt to hide her in the garden. As time passed I thought I’d been pardoned on my side of the deal. I was wrong. The good lady never forgets! So here she is! A very rare and iconic Boston Whaler Sakonnet that’s looking for someone to love her and create many more memories with. I knew very little about Boston Whalers when purchasing ‘Hobo’ back in 2015. There was something undeniably cool about her lines and colour and owning her has proved to be incredibly nostalgic. It’s only during the last 6 years of ownership that I’ve discovered just how iconic, versatile and desirable these little boats are. ‘Hobo’ is a 56 year old 1964 16’7” Boston Whaler Sakonnet that was built in Boston Whaler’s old Rockland, Massachusetts factory. Boston Whaler have confirmed that she was originally shipped to a local dealer on the 2nd March 1964 but how she arrived in the UK still remains somewhat of a mystery. To our knowledge, she’s the only 16’7” Boston Whaler from the blue gelcoat era in the UK. Boston Whaler stopped using this colour in 1973. We are, however, aware of a number of 13” pre 1973 Whalers across the South coast. The past owner had used her for family holidays in and around Salcombe and they purchased her from long-term owners, the Dartmouth–Kingswear Floating Bridge Company.
