The Miller family took possession of a Swifty 14 from Shell Boats this weekend. Alex has named her "High Treason" (he's named my canoe "The Black Pearl" ... one might accurately conclude at the age of 5, he's pretty big into pirates). We were looking for something that could fit four comfortably and be at home sailing, rowing or motoring. The Swifty fit the bill quite nicely.
The design of the Swifty is quite attractive, and the original craftsmanship quite good. The boat was in need of some minor repair and the previous owner was in the midst of painting her, but decided to go the route of a new fishing boat and knocked off the price considerably to make room.
Quoting from Shell Boat's homepage:
Here are a few (albeit poor) pictures after a new paint job. A few more are available of her with our Martin 60 outboard after the rebuild. My son and I have done a fair bit of driveway sailing just to have a bit of fun. She sails and motors, however, much better on water :).
