This mighty 1937 Purdy commuter yacht was completely restored at Brooklin Boat Yard. Aphrodite’s rehabilitation shows how traditional design and technological innovation each have their place on the water. With redesigned propulsion and steering systems, new tanks and plumbing systems, and completely revamped interior, she is perfectly matched to her owners’ flawless tastes. The result of this collaboration is a thrilling glimpse at what yachting was like in the 1930s—with all the comforts of today.
