Click to view slideshow.

This brilliant custom schooner rigged Sharpie Exuma 44′ is loaded with salty character and unique features.

Her long, lean, slippery profile provides both shallow draft (2′ 10″!) and great seagoing characteristics.

Two separate cabins and a large cockpit with tiller steering are optimized for simple coastal cruising and enjoying the island liveaboard lifestyle.

Two freestanding rigs with lazy jacks keep the sailplan simple and crew friendly.

This vessel is currently cruising in the Bahamas and is easy to inspect by appointment.

The builder, Reuel Parker, featured this vessel in his book “The New Cold-Molded Boatbuilding – From Lofting to Launching”.

A major refit in 2010 perfected her for cruising in the Bahamas, which the current owner has enjoyed doing each off season.
