http://sanfordbiggers.com/bio buy now Eloise, hull #1 of our Islander design, blends the lineage of the Bahamian runabouts made famous by the Albury family and downeast lobster boats of Maine. While the design will feel right at home along our rocky coast, Eloise has been delivered to the Bahamas where her open transom will provide easy access in and out of the water. The design brief for Eloise was for a boat capable of occasional inter-island passages, but which would be used mostly for cocktail cruises and swimming. The boat had to be very low maintenance yet stand out as a distinctive creation. Her all paint finish is accented with bare teak trim and custom bronze hardware highlighting the craftsmanship Rockport Marine is known for.
