MacKenzie only built 20 of their 30’ model…and I would submit that this survivor is the best one. That’s thanks to the knowledge, skill and efforts by this owner. You’ve heard the expression, “It was a labor of love”…well this owner proved it. Aimee Beth underwent a six-year restoration and the attention to detail was unbelievable. I know because I watched it. Planks were carefully replaced, the transom was rebuilt, the bottom was completely replaced an all-new cockpit sole installed, custom features were incorporated such as the creation of a proper radar mast, the nifty two-part motor box.

Broker's Comments

Literally everything has been rebuilt on Aimee Beth with special attention to selection of materials. The owner traveled far and wide to find the perfect plank…or to have a special piece of hardware cast for the boat. The wiring is all new and the low hour engine has been serviced. The plumbing is new…and the stove hasn’t even been used, yet. New canvas…new mattresses and upholstery.

Here is an opportunity to own a magnificent piece of history in like new condition. The owner is ready for his next project. Aimee Beth sits in covered storage waiting for her next owner…and next adventure. Come have a look!
