The commuter yacht Phoenix was designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Consolidated Shipbuilding in 1937. She is currently on a truck en route to Maine.

Phoenix was one of several S&S/Consolidated commuters commissioned by E.E. Dickinson, the "Witch Hazel" magnate who, like many industrialists of the time, sped across Long Island Sound in this elegant yacht from his home in Connecticut to his office in the financial district of Manhattan.

This is a unique opportunity to acquire one of the few remaining authentic commuters from a bygone era. The asking price for the 64-foot yacht is $295,000.
