I just returned from a few weeks in Annapolis, Maryland where I had the opportunity to catch up with my friend Tom Weaver, a career yachtsman with more enviable sea stories than anyone I’ve ever met.  Tom spent the late 80’s and early 90’s blazing around the planet as a professional sailor on the 50-foot circuit, then raced for years on the virtually unbeatable Farr-designed Gaucho.  After crewing on the late Steve Fossett’s 125-foot long catamaran, Playstation, and 5-years as manager of the Mascalzone Latino America’s Cup program, Tom and legendary yacht designer, Mick Price, teamed up to form Weaver-Price Design and Construction.

The Eastport 32 is a product of their combined genius.

With twin 190 HP diesels, a drop-down transom, and crazy amounts of deck space aft of the helm console, this boat has the functionality and classic look of a lobster boat, but is incredibly comfortable at anchor or while cruising through heavy chop at 27 knots.  It’s twin engine and twin propeller design also provides a margin of safety offshore and it’s 22 inches of draft allows access to fishing spots other boats this size could never reach.

If you’re in the market for a boat that will make you smile every time you cast off the docklines, this is it.  Check out their website and feel free to send them your comments….
