1932, Chester E. Clement Custom Open Launch, 26’
Asking Price: $20,000 / Location: Brooklin Boat Yard, Brooklin, Maine

RAVEN was built 1932 by Chester E. Clement / C.E. Clement Boat Builders of Southwest Harbor, Maine for Joseph Gilbert Thorp and his bride Anne Allegra Longfellow Thorp.

RAVEN was originally used by the Thorp’s for excursions in and around the Great Harbor of Mount Desert Island but principally as the tender to their summer home RAVENTHORP located on Greenings Island just off the shores of Southwest Harbor. All through the years RAVEN has stayed on as tender to Greenings Island and RAVENTRORP changing ownership and her mission only slightly over the last 89 years. All that have owned RAVEN have understood that this is a very special boat and so have treated her accordingly.

RAVEN is offered for sale in good condition with a nearly new engine. She is located at Brooklin Boat Yard in Brooklin, ME. Call us to arrange a visit to see RAVEN first-hand.
