Phoebe Snow is our second boat, and built to replace our 20' Rose hull Adelaide which served us well for over 15 years. We were in need of a larger boat to accomodate our expanding family, which lead us to the purchase of an Elliott Bay hull. In 2009 we were able to obtain a bare, unfinished, new / old stock hull. This hull was originally built as E.B. hull #14 in 1987. It had been sold to it's original owner who had an untimely death before ever being fitted out, registered or launched, it sat in his shop for 22 years! With the sale of Adelaide, my son and I started the long process of fitting out the new boat. Still a work in progress, we launched Phoebe Snow in July, 2013.
