Mount Desert Yacht Yard


Mount Desert Yacht Yard began as a yacht storage and repair business, but became a design and building yard, particularly during the late 1940s and 1950s, as E. Farnham Butler and his associates, Ted Earl and Cy Hamlin, developed a line of light displacement, reverse sheer cruising boats from 22 to 36 feet. These include the Amphibicon, Amphibi-ette, Controversy 26, 27, 30, and 36.
