lassic Boat Magazine is a British publication dedicated to the world's most beautiful boats. Weatherly happens to be one of them and was recognized as such in "Overseas News". Last fall Weatherly received federal recognition for her contribution to the history of naval architecture, engineering, and recreation. Edward F. Sanderson, executive director of the Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission, announced that the National Park Service listed on the National Register of Historic Places. According to Sanderson, "The Ocean State has been a world-class yacht racing center for over a century, and is an illustrious representative of this proud tradition."

George Hill, the current owner and skipper of Weatherly, also one of the partners in our company, certainly put a major effort into reviving Weatherly to her original specs and he continues to lovingly maintain her. Throughout this winter, you can find George at New England Boatworks in Portsmouth, RI working on all kinds of projects on Weatherly, getting her ready for the upcoming charter season.
