Vessel Overview

NANCY LAKIN is a unique, shoal-draft cruiser with comfortable accommodations for four or five. Wood/epoxy construction by the notable Covey Island Boatworks is more robust than conventional fiberglass and as easily maintained. Nancy Lakin can cruise in 3’ of water and can be “dried-out” without concern, opening up cruising grounds that are unavailable to most.


Nancy Lakin offers fore and aft staterooms with galley and dining in the pilothouse. Beginning forward is a conventional Vee-berth arrangement with head compartment and separate stall shower. Up three steps is the raised deckhouse with double wing doors, full-function helm station to port and a galley down the starboard side. A convertible dining table, opposite to port, will dine with six or convert to a double berth.  

Aft and down three steps is a bright and comfortable cabin with private head which opens into the cockpit.  The port settee includes a Pullman above, a single berth is opposite to starboard.  With all berths occupied, Nancy Lakin could cruise with as many as seven.  The cockpit is an important social space on the yacht, available for alfresco dining and water access.

Fit and finish throughout is to an exceptional standard with a variety of varnished hardwoods, white hull ceilings and headliners. No space is wasted, storage is abundant. 


NANCY LAKIN was constructed with Covey Island Boatworks wood/epoxy protocol utilizing strip-style clear Douglas fir, stainless fastened and wetted out on four sides, sheathed with mat and E-glass on the exterior with three coats of epoxy on the interior.  This technique has been commended by surveyors worldwide and officially recognized by the EU as the “Covey Island Technique” surpassing all scantling requirements for CE certification.  For grounding purposes, a 3/8” stainless plate is fitted and affixed to the bottom.

Brokers Comments

NANCY LAKIN is not another white yacht. This is a unique, well engineered cruiser with exceptional versatility which will be much appreciated in thin water destinations such as the Bahamas or the Chesapeake. Systems such as the steadying sail and dinghy hoist are simple and effective. Service access to machinery is excellent. Fit and finish is to a high standard. Dave Gerr has combined cutting-edge naval architecture with a classic profile and Covey Island Boatworks has executed a special modern classic.
