AMERICAN BEAUTY is by far the best maintained and most completely equipped example of this
classic, time-honored design currently in commission anywhere. $40,000+ in maintenance and
upgrades recently completed at New England Boatworks in response to a July, 2012 survey. A
January, 2013 survey, detailing all work is now available. Everything has been done to make her
immediately ready for an evening sail, a Bermuda race or an extended voyage.
