Eloise was well restored by in 2012 by a wealthy previous owner, 3rd owner, who was dedicated to restoring this classic yacht. We bought her in Florida 2 years ago from the previous owner for a fraction of the cost he invested into her and we brought her to Southport NC.Minimum bidding price is based for the engines, the gen, and the cost of hauling her from Florida to where we are now in North Carolina.Any addition bids will take into account the boat herself and the variety of hardware throughout. We are looking for the care and attention of a wooden boat aficionado who can continue to celebrate the craftsmanship and history of Eloise.She is in good condition.She needs a crafty hand to keep her up to snuff.
