There was one in my marina that I drooled over every time I went by. One of the prettiest Downeasters made today IMHO.

Maritime Skiff not a DE but built in Maine
Who designed this hull and how do they compare to other 30 footers on the market?

I helped build a couple of these when they were being built at Southport Island Marine after David Nut sold the mold and business to doug goldheirsch. Not sure if they have built any lately. I was a senior in high school when I was working over there so that was 7 or 8 years ago. They are a very pretty boat, ride well and are very smooth, with that yanmar their incredibly quiet compared to the lobster boats I'm used to riding on. Every boat has its purpose and as day/weeken over nighter and pleasure or picnic boat this boat is perfect. If you would like some inside info on the particular hull your looking at, as far as lay up or construction goes i could put you in touch with a few ppl
