Built in 1964 by the Wharton Boat Yard (Now Jamestown Boat Yard), in Jamestown, Rhode Island and designed by C. Raymond Hunt, STINGRAY has an elegant custom-hull design that is one of a kind.
In 1989/1990, STINGRAY went through a major rebuild project by Renaissance Yachts of Maine, where her systems were replaced, hull strengthened and several interior modifications made to her arraignment plan. Overall, 25,000 man hours were spent on her. After this, she cruised extensively along the East Coast of the US to the Bahamas and back.
In 2010/2011, she again went through a major restoration, this time under the direction of Steve White and Brooklin Boatyard, in Maine. This 15,000 man-hour job saw new teak decks, engines, and replacement of all major systems, as well as interior refurbishment, and paint inside and out. During this time her owner also enlisted, the design team at C. Raymond Hunt to do a proper engine repower study on the boat. Hitting the water again mid-summer 2011, she is now more efficient, faster, and lighter than she has ever been.
