DOVETAIL was John Trumpy and Sons contract #446 built in 1972 in Annapolis, Maryland as one of the last of the popular “Houseboat” model. Originally named GERIFAY, she was Committee Boat for the 1974 Americas Cup Races in Newport, RI.

DOVETAIL has an enclosed pilothouse and a large full-width galley on the main deck. Her overall length is 72’ / 21.95m, with a beam of 18’ / 5.49m and a draft of 4’5” / 1.35m. Her hull is double planked mahogany with marine grade 5200 between the 3/8 inch inner and 3/4-inch outer mahogany planks. Impeccably well maintained, she is a classic yacht with fully modernized systems. Fully refit / restored including new hull painted in 2019 with ongoing maintenance and upgrades - including new teak decks laid on the aft deck in 2023 replacing the carpeted non-skid.

On the main deck forward of the galley is the wheelhouse with a helm bench, an opening center window and port and starboard wing doors. A forward companionway leads from the wheelhouse down to the lower deck crew quarters, laundry area, abundant storage, and adjacent easily accessible engine room. DOVETAIL is propelled by twin 650 hp Cummins Diesel engines (rebuilt in 2018.) Twin 25KW Northern Lights generators run the systems, in addition to Naiad 254 hydraulic stabilizers, hydraulic bow thruster, Spectra water-maker, Cruisair Air Conditioning, windlass, plus much more.

Aft of the galley is the spacious and inviting salon with mahogany furnishings and cabinetry, a day-head and original roll-down windows for the option of fresh air. A pass-through window from the galley makes service efficient. The salon opens to the aft deck which can be enjoyed “al fresco” to take in the fresh sea-breeze, or fully enclosed with isinglass and air conditioning. The teak-decked (2023) aft deck has a wet-bar, buffet, and icemaker for enjoying sunset cocktails.

From the salon, stairs lead down to the guest accommodations that includes the full beam owner’s stateroom aft, furnished with a centerline queen bed and ensuite head. Moving forward on the lower deck are two identical guest cabins port and starboard each with 2 twin beds & an ensuite head.

DOVETAIL is an absolute must-see for Trumpy or classic-yacht lovers!
