Douce Amie is a wonderful wooden daysailer which received an extensive restoration during the winter of 1999/2000. The boat was originally built in 1947 at the Brigham Shipyard in Greenport Long Island. Most of Douce Amie’s life was spent sailing the shores of Connecticut and New York, only recently did the boat find it’s way to Maine. Recently surveyed (10/20/18) she has been determined to be in excellent shape. This vessel has been donated to Maine Island Trail Association and the sale will greatly help this organization.
