COMMENTS:  The Bunker and Ellis is one of the most elegant  ‘Lobster Yacht’ designs produced.  ‘Vera Lee’underwent an extensive restoration in 2008 including repowering. All of her systems were completely redone, woodwork professionally refinished and new electronic upgrades.  All work was professionally completed to very high standards at a reputable boatyard in Maine.  ‘Vera Lee’ must be seen to be appreciated.  She is in exceptional condition and a true piece of Maine nautical history. Details of the restoration are too extensive to list but available upon request.  Vera Lee has been lovingly and meticulously cared for.   She has been commissioned and available for sea trials in Maine.

Played a minor role in two movies: Ciderhouse Rules and Sternman, Also Featured in Wooden Boat Magazine August 2010
