Natanya was built by the Jarvis Newman Boatyard of Southwest Harbor, Maine with a handlaid fiberglass hull and deck assembly.  She was then completed by her original owner down in Westbrook, Maine, and moored in Five Islands.   In the late 1980s her interior was rebuilt by the Mac Pettegrow Yard of Southwest Harbor, and for the past 24 years she has been sailed out of Greenwich, CT.  She is a beautiful example of a classic sloop with a glass hull and deck assembly and has been upgraded throughout the years as needed. We recommend her to the sailing enthusiast who enjoys traditional sailing.
