Her hull is still for sale and Doug (and his boat building partner Robert D’Arcy) would be delighted to talk about options for rebuilding her into a spectacular cruising/racing boat”, Ginny Jones.

“Jay Jones was my Step-Father. He bought the Altamar in the early 1960’s. I sailed on this boat to Catalina almost every summer and when we could in the winter. Jay won the Lipton cup on the Altamar”, Debbie Travis-Moore.
