A new beginning for S/Y Doris

ADVERTISEMENT

Languishing in a boat yard in New London CT for 30 years, S/Y Doris was scheduled to be scrapped at the end of August 2013.  Given a one-year lease on life by the generous collaboration of a good friend and Taylor & Snediker Yacht Restoration of Pawcatuck, a search for a new owner was spearheaded. Now, thanks to an enthusiastic client, DORIS has been saved.

The complete restoration of DORIS, an anticipated five-year project, will be the largest ever undertaken by Taylor & Snediker. This website will follow the progress as she’s returned to her original specifications, featuring the latest information and pictures, in addition, will share her history as its discovered through past owners and maritime archives.

DORIS/VAYU owner David Revenaugh expresses his sentiment about the restoration of DORIS – the yacht he owned and loved for aprox. 20 years.  A very special thank you to the Mercanti Family for sharing their slides detailing adventures aboard VAYU (Jim Mercanti, owned DORIS/VAYU from 1957 to 1974 and ran her as a Charter Yacht).
