The price of Phoenix, a 64' Sparkman & Stephens commuter yacht built in 1937, has undergone another price drop. The classic is now being offered for $175,000--30 percent less than its original asking price of $250,000. The price was first lowered 20 percent just a week after it went on the market in March and has now been reduced by another 10 percent.
UPDATE: Price has been further reduced to $155,000.
Phoenix has been trucked across country to a well respected boatyard that specializes in classic yachts on the coast of Maine where she awaits her next owner and the restoration that will give this unique piece of yachting history a new life. The most recent price reduction indicates the current owners desire to sell the boat immediately. All reasonable offers are encouraged.
The Consolidated Shipbuilding of New York City built some of the most famous commuter yachts of the 1920s and '30s. These sleek, swift yet elegant vessels were the preferred method of transportation to and from the financial district of Manhattan for the Wall Street magnates and industrialists that resided in the Connecticut and Long Island suburbs. Sparkman & Stephens collaborated with Consolidated on a number of famous Commuters. Phoenix was designed and built for E.E. Dickenson Jr. in 1937.
However, this is the very last available Sparkman & Stephens commuter in existence. This additional price reduction underscores the owners's desire to move the boat.
Phoenix represents an opportunity for a new owner to put her through restoration and own a historically significant commuter. A partial trade would be considered, such as a 28'-35' Down East style lobster yacht or similar. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of yachting history.
