Our Joy renovation story By Jay Greene, 12-15-2019
In 2014, my 89 year old father said to me, “we should have a boat.”
His last boat was a 53 Hatteras flybridge motor yacht named Big Joy. He sold her in 2003 after he suffered a heart attack while cruising her back to Florida from a summer on the Chesapeake. My last boat was a 47 Chris Craft flush deck motor yacht that we sold in 2007 so that I could spend more time on the renovation of our c1880 Victorian project home. That project was behind me, so I was looking for a new challenge.
We had eliminated flybridge boats from our search because he could not climb a ladder to enjoy the upper helm seating. We were looking for a cruising boat with a minimum of stairs, which eliminated trawlers. He needed the stability of a large boat. Imagine at 90 years old, stepping onto the gunwale of a small boat and having it move drastically, causing a fall. We needed a larger boat! A 63 Burger would be very nice, but they were beyond our reach.
I was attracted to this 46 foot Italian made Giorgi twin diesel performance cruiser. It checked off all the boxes for us. Large enough to be comfortable, easy on, easy off and air conditioning for Dad (because he is getting up in years). A frost free fridge, separate staterooms and easy to handle lines for the ladies. I wanted fiberglass, powerful diesels and something impressive that would be worth my effort. I was impressed with her lines, her raked stern and european cachet. The hardware and fitment were top notch. She appeared to have good bones. The huge hardtop and cockpit would be perfect to enjoy the water environment and yet be protected from the sun. I could imagine us al fresco dining and entertaining aboard.
She had sunk in 2010 in her slip in Kent Narrows and was salvaged by John Patnovick at Worton Creek Marina. He intended to make her his fun Bay boat. The twin Caterpillars were pickled immediately and then she was set aside for a thorough renovation. He knew that a 46 ft Italian made sport cruiser with a pair of 435 hp turbo intercooled diesels cruising at 25 kts would make a great impression on the Bay. But he had moved on to other projects and this beauty was now available and priced right.
We agreed to buy her if she ran. We hired an engine surveyor from Alban Cat in Annapolis. He determined that even though the engines ran well, we should have them completely rebuilt to Caterpillar specs. That is Caterpillar’s expensive recommendation to avoid any liability in commercial use. The engines went under water with just 411 hours, so they were still relatively new. The recreational use of about 50 hours per season and annual oil changes would keep these engines happy for many many years.
With a friend along for support, the next day we cruised her up the bay to Summit North Marina to have her hauled and begin our renovation closer to home. I carefully removed and cleaned
every piece of soft goods and removed the basic wiring. Every wire had absorbed salt water and was corroded its entire length. This project is not a simple remove and replace. Instead, it is remove, clean, re-design and retrofit. I had restored numerous cars, RVs, boats and houses by now, so I was comfortable with my abilities.
Originally a euro 240v AC, 24v DC, with a 9 kW generator, relays and rectifiers, she would become USA ABYC compliant, 120v AC, 12v and 24v DC with a 6 kW generator and 3 kW inverter. She would be completely modernized with LED lighting, NMEA 2000 network and a glass bridge.
The goal for our first season was to have a reliable runabout. I would need to design a battery and charging system for the 12v house and 24v engine batteries with shore power, and an engine starting system with gauges and navigation. I consulted with Engler Electronics, Blue Sea Systems, Peter Kennedy Yacht Services and attended numerous Power Boat Shows to learn my options.
After the first winter of renovation (600 hours) and one season of running, we had a safe, fun, great big runabout with fancy dual touch screen monitors. I discovered that the Fugawi software was inadequate, so we upgraded to Maretron software, GPS and tank sensors. It was far better in this application and a justification for using PCs. The installed Reverso oil change system makes annual oil changes a breeze. My surveyor was impressed with my work. He said that very few renovation projects make it this far.
The second winter’s goals after another 600 hours saw other important amenities completed: the refrigerator, microwave, hot water and cooktop for the galley, new CruisAir air conditioning, new fresh water flush Jabsco toilets, update the waste system, repair the anchor winch, install the new Mase generator and add Furuno radar and a second solid state mil spec PC for redundancy. We upgraded to Timezero Trident navigation software too. This sounds like a lot, but it is mostly a matter of building on the primary wiring and design work that preceded it.
The third winter saw the replacement of the crazed and discolored acrylic windshield with tempered glass and new hydraulics from Bitecnomare in Italy for the beautiful teak and stainless steel passerelle that is used for aft boarding or elegant de-swimming. A new stereo and TV system that is integrated with the bridge’s LAN was added. New vinyl covers with extra padding on all the cockpit seating and new canvas all around makes her look and sound like new!
Now all we do is enjoy the fruit of our efforts. Unfortunately, Dad can’t move so well at 94 years of age. As much as he would like to be aboard, he can’t do it anymore, so this was his last season. We have agreed to sell her while she is very much like new and let a new owner love her like we did.

You must take a look at this 1975 hull refit and make your mind up on whether she perfectly fits the bill!

Yacht "Peregrine" is pristine, turn key, & shed kept in Thomaston, Maine, a better than new example of the finest combination of Maine custom yacht building at Lyman-Morse, along with the best design team at C. Raymond Hunt. Being a twin jet propelled yacht, she will cruise at 24 to 32.4 knots without a worry of Lobster or crab pot buoys! Exquisite interior finish and top electronics make her a must see for your next purchase. Beyond belief!
The "Peregrine" is an outstanding example of Lyman-Morse quality yacht construction, fit and finish! Though she features traditional Downeast styling on her exterior, Peregrine's systems make use of the latest performance and sound reduction. Her C-9 ACERT Caterpillar engines are coupled with Hamilton marine HJ322 jets. Steering is mouse controlled with a Hamilton Jet-Blue Arrow system. High-density material in the stringer system as well as Metalastic type anti-vibration mounts and strategically placed sound deadening tiles have minimised structure-borne sound and created a comfortable interior while cruising at 30 knots.
"Peregrine's owners have cruised many of the highest quality yachts in their ownership past, including numerous Eastbay yachts. Their past experience and attention to innovative design features, combined with the highly skilled designers and craftsmen at Lyman-Morse, have all been incorporated into this refined custom yacht. Since delivery, she has been stored in a heated and dust-free custom shed and her full time captain reports that she is in flawless condition without a single needed repair or current maintenance item to address. She is a must see if you are in the market for the most refined and better than new 42' Hunt design yacht imaginable".

The yacht GUILDIVE has had an impressive history starting with her build on Coney Island, NY at the Wheeler Shipyard in 1934, originally given the name RESTLESS. She was built to William Hand Jr.'s design who is recognized as one of the most respected yacht designer of the 20th century. She was first under the ownership of a well known politician and businessman from Long Island. She spent much of her early life in the waters of Long Island, New York Harbor, and New Jersey. After a few owners she was taken into the WWII coastal picket force and used as a patrol vessel along the New Jersey and Long Island shores. A few pieces from that time are still shown on the boat. She returned to private ownership and was taken to Marblehead. After her time in New England she was sold and brought to the Caribbean. The owners were one of the first people in the Caribbean to offer charters in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Many of her past guests and crew still remember her down there. Sold in 1980, an extensive 8 year refit in Puerto Rico was completed and they continued to own her for a total of 30 years. The vessel, at that time, cruised the coast of the United States and Canada and was well outfitted for cruising and double handed sailing. Presently GUILDIVE is used as a day and overnight charter business along the east coast ranging from the Chesapeake Bay to the Penobscot Bay, Maine.

Cruise in luxury and style!

The owner's wife told her husband that she would only agree to sailing around the world if the vessel provided enough luxury so she didn't feel like she was camping. Annapurna clearly provides such amenities.
More recently (2016 - 2019) Annapurna traveled south from Santa Monica Bay to Panama then the US east coast and the Bahamas.

Enjoyed sailing her because of the way she handles in a blue water sea way (Bermuda trip and Atlantic cruising from Florida to Annapolis) as well as long haul amenities, e.g., radar and autopilot. Great shallow water cruising in the bay with C/B up. Creature comforts great too; galley fridge/freezer, good stove, potable water dechlorinator in galley, HVAC, stand alone water heater for hot showers (rationed though on long cruises). One aft head for crew, cabin with Pullman berth forward for captain with private head and TV with disc player. Pullman configuration gives good comfort in a bumpy seaway. Two SSB's (one in salon and one topside) for worldwide radio coverage. Two VHF's, one in salon and back-up at helm, for short range contact ship to ship and ship to shore.
Electric windlass great for sending someone up the mast, hauling in anchor and bringing in sails. In-mast furling for main and roller furling for both Genoa and Yankee make single handing easy, especially with electric windlass. I had no problems single handing day sails on the bay with all this stuff. Dual Racor fuel filter allows filter change underway. Used it on my Bermuda trip. Very convenient; no stopping, no hassle. It got us into St. George's without a hitch.
Lastly, gen-set to keep everything powered up.

The yacht “Harmony” Is a 2002 Bavarian 44 that has a lot going for her.

She’s easy and comfortable to sail but there’s enough edge to the performance to gain and hold the skipper’s interest. "Harmony" is located on the Severn river in Annapolis. She was completely detailed, bottom painted and fully commissioned for the spring sailing season. She is ready to be found by her next owner! Only 5' Draft, Air conditioning and Generator/Interior features 3 cabin layout/Excellent condition canvas and Sail cover/stackpak with lazyjacks. Also features Air conditioning and Generator!
