Description

This is your chance to own a meticulously restored piece of American history and North Carolina’s most historic and iconic vessels.

During the depths of the great depression in the 1930s, two well-renowned boat builders in Morehead City, NC, Charles Riley Willis and Micajah Adams, began work on a wooden fishing boat. Designed for the shallow fishing grounds of the core and bogue sounds, Sylvia II was built as a classic North Carolina “deadrise “sink netter – by design a “quarter boat,” whose beam of 9 feet was exactly 1/4 her length of 36 feet. With a wide, open aft deck and a distinctive rounded stern in order to allow her nets to be hauled up by the forward mast and boom arrangement without getting “hung up” on the sharp transom corners of traditional boats, it was a design descended from the New England sharpies, oyster boats brought south after the Civil War.

Framed in heart pine and planked in Atlantic white cedar and launched in 1934, Sylvia II became one of the hundreds of similar boats working the North Carolina fishing grounds, sink netting in the shallow sounds and bays in the spring and summer and long-lining off the coast in the fall and winter. 

With the advent of WWII in 1941, the US Navy conscripted Sylvia II for ‘U-boat patrols” off the NC coast and running supplies to remote coastal outposts. When the war was over, she returned to her fishing grounds and for a time, also did double duty as a waterborne “school bus,” ferrying children from remote fishing villages along bogue sound and the Shackleford banks to schools in Morehead City and Beaufort.

Within the last 6 years the current owner converted her interior and new systems and power into a usable and functional “family cruiser” while not sacrificing any of her distinctive “Carolina flare” and long sweeping sheer profile that made her such a historic icon of the North Carolina coast.
