 Donated to Maine Maritime Academy and now available for charter with option to buy.

Stellaluna has only been with the current owners for a couple of years, but in that time they have enjoyed a wonderful winter in the Bahamas and a couple of beautiful summers in Penobscot Bay, Maine.  In this time the owners have maintained a professional captain and docked and stored with Lyman-Morse where they have done a lot of work with the craftsmen, including all new soft goods and new dodger and exterior cushions.

This Hinckley Sou’wester 59 has three cabins to accommodate all of the family and friends and with the centerboard she is incredibly versatile sailing and anchoring.
