HERMITAGE 101' (30.8m) C.A. Morse Shipyard Yacht for Sale

Posted May 22, 2024 in Brokerage & New Build by Ashleigh King

The 101’1” (30.8m) C.A. Morse Shipyard HERMITAGE is now for sale with Yacht Brokers Nellie Horvath and Bill Titus. The luxury sailing yacht is asking $3,900,000.

HERMITAGE is a fusion of the sleek elegance of a champion racer and the timeless luxury of a classic sailing yacht. Like new courtesy of a 2023 refit of systems, engine, rigging and more, HERMITAGE offers modern luxury amid her rich maritime history. She was crafted in 1929 by the C.A. Morse shipyard, now Lyman-Morse, in Thomaston, Maine. This storied vessel, once known as SEA GYPSY, boasts a rich history that intertwines with World War II and the classic yachting renaissance of the 1960s. Having patrolled the coastal waters near Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Block Island during the war, HERMITAGE later became a beacon of inspiration, igniting a resurgence in John Alden-styled schooners with her sleek lines and timeless aesthetic. Evolving gracefully from a gaff-rigged schooner to a staysail schooner in the 1980s, she continues to captivate. With her hand-painted carbon fiber Sitka spruce masts and booms, meticulous teak interiors and winning combination of speed, style and sophistication, HERMITAGE will be a cherished prize for her next owner.

Following a comprehensive 2 million dollar refit spanning 2023-2024, HERMITAGE is in excellent condition. Every facet of her design has been enhanced to ensure she remains at the forefront of performance. From her innovative HVAC setup to a complete engine rebuild and reinstall, and electrical and navigational updates, no detail has been spared.

HERMITAGE’s interior spaces are elegant and inviting, with teak accents and dark glass cupboards lending a sense of timeless charm. The salon is centered around a beautiful large wooden dining table, perfect for meals or simply enjoying conversation. A large mirror adds to the sense of openness. The galley, positioned on the port side forward of the salon, features stainless steel countertops, a double sink and a Meile electric stove and oven.

Her accommodations are designed for maximum comfort and offer a sanctuary for up to 12 guests across seven cabins. The owner’s stateroom, nestled on the port side aft of the salon, is tranquil with its teak accents and classic layout. Bathed in natural light from a port window, the room features a welcoming double bed flanked by ample storage and a full en-suite bathroom. Guests are welcome in three staterooms on the port side, each thoughtfully appointed with bunk-style twin beds and spacious storage. A mirrored layout on the starboard side offers additional accommodations. Forward of the salon, a final guest stateroom boasts a bright ambiance and a double bed with convenient access to the deck through the lazarette hatch.

HERMITAGE commands attention with her sleek silhouette and timeless charm. Her teak pilot house offers panoramic 360-degree views of the surrounding waters. To starboard is a second helm station ready for navigation and to port, a dedicated navigation station offers all the essential instruments and charts. Her custom on-deck dining forward of the pilot house offers panoramic views and beckons guests to enjoy alfresco dining.
