From 1947 to 1979 Newbert &amp; Wallace built fourteen pleasure boats on lobster-boat hull shapes, ten of them 36’ LOA and four of them 38’ LOA, mainly for owners at Islesboro, Maine, a few in Southern New England, and one in Grosse Point, Michigan.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">VIM was originally commissioned as QUESTOR for the Thorndike family of Milton, MA and Islesboro. For most of her early life, VIM (then named OWL) was owned by the Moseley family of Islesboro. She was also owned for a time by famed wooden-boat surveyor Giffy Full, and she’s featured in a dedicated chapter of the 1998 book Maine Lobsterboats by author Virginia Thorndike, daughter of her original owner.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In 2001 VIM was re-powered with a Yanmar 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel inboard engine.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In 2013-14, QUESTOR/OWL, re-named VIM, was completely refurbished to state-of-the-art structural, technical, and cosmetic yacht standards – at Artisan Boatworks, Rockport, ME, with design and engineering support from Bob Stephens of Stephens Waring Yacht Design, Belfast, ME; and Barrington, RI-based Naval Architect Matthew Smith.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Unless otherwise indicated, specifications relate to work completed and new components installed during the 2013-14 refit.</span></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt;">HULL &amp; EXTERIOR</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Sixty new laminated oak frames from the main bulkhead aft</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New planks at the turn of the bilge</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- All planking, fasteners, and butts determined to be in “as new” condition</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- All hull penetrations replaced with new bronze through-hulls</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Bottom paint and seam compound entirely stripped and renewed</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New custom bronze rudder on bronze rudder-post</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Laminated interior blocking for bow-thruster tube</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New floor timbers under the engine</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New engine beds with bronze knees</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New plywood working deck and frame, sheathed in fiberglass/epoxy, and fully sound- and vibration-insulated with Soundown lead-foam</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New custom watertight access hatches for tanks</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New custom bronze deck access hatch over the new Aquadrive coupling</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- New Soundown-insulated, hinged, watertight engine box with storage lockers, drawers, and slate top</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Forward deck house surfaced with fiberglass/epoxy</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Forward access hatch with glass window replaced</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Two new bronze round opening ports in the forward face of the deckhouse</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Two new opening oval glass ports, one in each side of the house - in addition to the original four fixed ports</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Aft deck extended 18” forward to provide added storage beneath, and to cover the exhaust loop and the Vaccu-Flush toilet system and holding tank</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- Topsides, house, and decks re-faired and painted to yacht standards</span><br /> <br /><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt;">MACHINERY</span></strong><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">- 2001 Yanmar diesel engine serviced.

From 1947 to 1979 Newbert &amp; Wallace built fourteen pleasure boats on lobster-boat hull shapes, ten of them 36’ LOA and four of them 38’ LOA, mainly for owners at Islesboro, Maine, a few in Southern New England, and one in Grosse Point, Michigan.</span></p> <p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">VIM was originally commissioned as QUESTOR for the Thorndike family of Milton, MA and Islesboro. For most of her early life, VIM (then named OWL) was owned by the Moseley family of Islesboro. She was also owned for a time by famed wooden-boat surveyor Giffy Full, and she’s featured in a dedicated chapter of the 1998 book Maine Lobsterboats by author Virginia Thorndike, daughter of her original owner.</span></p> <p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">In 2001 VIM was re-powered with a Yanmar 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel inboard engine.</span></p> <p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">In 2013-14, QUESTOR/OWL, re-named VIM, was completely refurbished to state-of-the-art structural, technical, and cosmetic yacht standards – at Artisan Boatworks, Rockport, ME, with design and engineering support from Bob Stephens of Stephens Waring Yacht Design, Belfast, ME; and Barrington, RI-based Naval Architect Matthew Smith.</span><br /> <br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Unless otherwise indicated, specifications relate to work completed and new components installed during the 2013-14 refit.</span></p> <p><strong><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">HULL &amp; EXTERIOR</span></strong></p> <p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Sixty new laminated oak frames from the main bulkhead aft</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New planks at the turn of the bilge</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- All planking, fasteners, and butts determined to be in “as new” condition</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- All hull penetrations replaced with new bronze through-hulls</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Bottom paint and seam compound entirely stripped and renewed</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New custom bronze rudder on bronze rudder-post</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Laminated interior blocking for bow-thruster tube</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New floor timbers under the engine</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New engine beds with bronze knees</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New plywood working deck and frame, sheathed in fiberglass/epoxy, and fully sound- and vibration-insulated with Soundown lead-foam</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New custom watertight access hatches for tanks</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New custom bronze deck access hatch over the new Aquadrive coupling</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- New Soundown-insulated, hinged, watertight engine box with storage lockers, drawers, and slate top</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Forward deck house surfaced with fiberglass/epoxy</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Forward access hatch with glass window replaced</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Two new bronze round opening ports in the forward face of the deckhouse</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Two new opening oval glass ports, one in each side of the house - in addition to the original four fixed ports</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Aft deck extended 18” forward to provide added storage beneath, and to cover the exhaust loop and the Vaccu-Flush toilet system and holding tank</span><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- Topsides, house, and decks re-faired and painted to yacht standards</span><br /> <br /><strong><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">MACHINERY</span></strong><br /><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">- 2001 Yanmar diesel engine serviced.

INQUIRE ABOUT THIS YACHT
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

VIM (Ex-Crestor, Ex-OWL) is a classic, 1957 Islesboro, ME lobster yacht built in Thomaston, ME. She is a quintessential example of the pleasure boats based on lobstering hulls built in the second half of the 20th century and indigenous to Penobscot Bay. She is now fully restored and converted to cruising, party, and entertainment use.

VIM comes to the market from the collection of a passionate yachtsman and expert restorer of significant yachts and antique cars. VIM remains true to her heritage in terms of her profile, lines, all-wood structure, and construction method. However, the objective of her restoration was to transform a faded Maine utility and pleasure boat into a museum quality vessel with today’s conveniences and reliability, to serve as a beautiful and gracious cruising and entertaining platform.

VIM is featured in and illustrated on the cover of the February 2018 issue of SOUNDINGS magazine. She was previously reviewed in MAINE BOATS, HOMES & HARBORS.

Additional Information

VIM (USCG Documentation # 1250122) was built in 1957 by Newbert & Wallace of Thomaston, ME, builders of fishing and lobster boats, sardine carriers, and other commercial vessels, to a design by Roy Wallace. From 1947 to 1979 Newbert & Wallace built fourteen pleasure boats on lobster-boat hull shapes, ten of them 36’ LOA and four of them 38’ LOA, mainly for owners at Islesboro, Maine, a few in Southern New England, and one in Grosse Point, Michigan.

VIM was originally commissioned as QUESTOR for the Thorndike family of Milton, MA and Islesboro. For most of her early life, VIM (then named OWL) was owned by the Moseley family of Islesboro. She was also owned for a time by famed wooden-boat surveyor Giffy Full, and she’s featured in a dedicated chapter of the 1998 book Maine Lobsterboats by author Virginia Thorndike, daughter of her original owner.

In 2001 VIM was re-powered with a Yanmar 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel inboard engine.

In 2013-14, QUESTOR/OWL, re-named VIM, was completely refurbished to state-of-the-art structural, technical, and cosmetic yacht standards – at Artisan Boatworks, Rockport, ME, with design and engineering support from Bob Stephens of Stephens Waring Yacht Design, Belfast, ME; and Barrington, RI-based Naval Architect Matthew Smith.

Unless otherwise indicated, specifications relate to work completed and new components installed during the 2013-14 refit.
