Used Downeast Boats For Sale

Downeast style boats and yachts have become one of the most popular cruising vessels today. Originating in Maine, Downeast Boats got their name from the geographical orientation of the coastline there and were originally called "Lobster Yachts" as they were the boat of choice used in the Maine lobster industry. One of the trademark characteristics of a Downeast Boat is the narrow-entry of the bow which cuts through chop with ease and results in a softer ride when the water is choppy. Long keels and large rudders also help maneuvering a true Downeast Boat in following seas. If you are looking for a boat or yacht that is fuel efficient when driven at cruising speeds that has the stability and comfort or a larger yacht, then a Downeast-style yacht may be what you're looking for. These boats typically cruise economically at 8-10 knots and can reach top end speeds in the 20 knot range.

Downeast brands like Sabre Yachts, Back Cove, Hinckley Yachts, MJM, and others have dominated this segment for years building what some call "Picnic Boats" as they are perfect day cruising boats for having a picnic in the cockpit or anchoring up next to an island in the ICW. Downeast Boats are typically in the 30 to 50 foot range, but recently brands like Sabre Yachts have been building more expensive, luxury Downeast Yachts in the 60-foot range. These larger Downeast Yachts can come equipped with 3-staterooms, massive interiors, and large cockpit areas for entertaining - a true evolution from the days of lobstering. The used Downeast Yachts market is also very competitive, with many boats selling quickly and holding their value which is a testament to the quality of most brands built today in this particular boat class.
