Cygnus II56' Custom Jakobson & Peterson 1930

$ 150,000

Cygnus II is a 1930 William Krumholz designed and Jakobson & Peterson built classic 56' Flattop motoryacht, with similar styling to Elco and Trumpy. She is owned by a very experienced and knowledgeable yachting couple who have decided it is time to move on to other life projects. If you are looking for a classic yacht that turns heads in any harbor, Cygnus II meets that requirement. She has been recognized at numerous prestigious shows, most recently as People's Choice winner at the 33rd annual Antique and Classic Boat Festival at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD. Cygnus II has also been featured in several yachting magazines. She has been successfully chartered previously, but she is now used privately by her present owners. Cygnus II offers numerous upgrades, like her Yanmar 170 HP main engines, but her owners have also tried to maintain her classic equipment in working order.
