This particular boat was located in Rowayton CT. It has since been removed by the (new) owner and, supposedly being restored. So it's no longer available. I don't know the name of the new owner or his/her whereabouts. The real Constellation expert is Ken Weller, an American who lives in the UK. (He used to be president of the Offshore Racing Council
) When I spoke to him a few months ago, he was in the process of having one shipped over there to be restored. He also used own another one that he purchase new when they were still being built. (in the 1960's ??)
Since I posted that picture, a number of people have asked me about it. I don't believe there are many like that just sitting around. But if I happen to hear of one, I'll let you know. I can give you Kens Email address if you're interested. I'll have to look it up and then contact him before I do. (I try to careful about posting email addresses without getting peoples permission)
That's all I can tell you at the moment.

I am looking for a Graves Constellation project. Can you provide any contact information on this boat? Also, can you suggest in general how I might go about executing a rescue on this boat? Should I approach the boatyard requesting information, is there a way to search for the owner via the registration number, etc?
