Bounder is becoming more and more rare in the yacht market.  A classic Downeast hull from the renowned builder Jarvis Newman.  Then passed on to the world renowned custom yacht builders at Lyman-Morse to build out the interior and systems and finish.  Add to this that Bounder is still owned by the original owners and stored and maintained at Lyman-Morse.
