Welcome Aboard Temma, our beautiful 42ft, one off custom built commuter yacht.
Built 1928 in Boothbay Maine by BW Rand's Boat Shop. Originally named Priscilla for the Teel Family in Boston MA. Before Pricilla, BW Rand's Boat Shop built a Sam Crocker Design with a raised deck. BW Rand later realized that with a couple changes he could improve upon the original Sam Crocker Design. With borrowed molds, the shop spaced some sections, neglected the raised deck opting for the long cabin top and adjusted the stern layouts. Temma was built long deep but skinny enough for just the right amount of power easily pushed along. With a displacement hull, speed was never in the design but stability & space combined with the smooth styling, Temma is perfect for what she does. Over the years multiple families have been the caretakers of this iconic New England Yacht & each have maintained her perfectly, for the next owners to continue on the legacy.
Newport Classic Yacht Co. welcomes you to our private yacht endeavor, Temma.
