WITCH was built in 1929 by the Electric Launch Company (Elco) and her original longtime hail port was City Island, New York City.
In 2014, she underwent an extensive shipyard refit that included new mechanical, electrical & plumbing systems, as well as hull and deck reinforcements, and discreetly placed modern amenities that do not compromise the historic integrity of the yacht. WITCH was awarded "Best Restoration to Original Design" at the prestigious Mystic Seaport Antique & Classic Boat Rendezvous. During the winter of 2018-2019, all paint and varnish on WITCH was renewed by Shannon Boat's expert New England crafstmen and she looks as good if not better than she looked in 1929
WITCH's interior layout features two staterooms aft and crew quarters forward of the galley. The galley and crew quarters are separated from the staterooms by the wheelhouse and main salon. Therefore, even at just 50 feet in length, WITCH still uniquely offers privacy for owners who employ crew.
As WITCH reaches her 90th birthday, the opportunity to own such a rarefied vessel that has been extensively restored is beyond compare for collectors, yacht tour & charter operators, or private ownership.
