Miss Nina is a 61 ft. pilothouse ketch designed by Phil Bolger and built in 1996 by Brad Story in Essex Massachusetts. This is a beautiful shallow draft vessel designed to allow for plenty of space down below, in the pilothouse, and on deck. Miss Nina carries over 1,200 square feet of sail, is stable and comfortable, and the rig is designed to be easily handled. The twin diesel engines allow the boat to cruise at eight knots when the wind is not cooperating. Built and maintained to the highest standards and with updated systems Miss Nina surveys to "as new" condition. This is the perfect boat for cruising, live-aboard, or a charter business.

With a beautifully appointed, executed and maintained interior, a spacious pilothouse, and ample space in the cockpit and on deck, Miss Nina is the perfect boat for coastal exploration. The added benefit of shallow draft allow this 61 ft. boat access to tidal areas unapproachable to sailboats half her size. The mast height of 56 ft. 6 in. allows Miss Nina to travel anywhere in the Intracoastal Waterway. This boat is in excellent condition and with its updated systems, rig and amenities makes for a perfect cruiser, live-aboard, or charter vessel.
Considering Miss Nina's draft and rig height, this is an ideal vessel for sailing the coast of Maine in the summer and cruising to the Bahamas come September. This is a floating home fit for family or couple looking to travel the coastline with the comforts of home.
