"Throughout the process of bringing Shearwater back to her original elegance, we strove to maintain all of her original design and appearance, both inside and out, keeping her true to Monk's vision as well as to the period in which she was built. This attention to original design and period is part of the enjoyment and the challenge of owning a classic motor yacht."
