2015 Custom Crocker Dans 78

Stuart, Florida
28' Crocker Dans 78, 2015
We are very pleased to represent this 2015 Custom Built Crocker Dans 78 for your consideration. She is a custom built Auxiliary Sail built by her current owner with very unique features and style reminiscent of days gone by! "Shades" was built using the traditional boat building method of cypress strip planking which is epoxy glued and nailed with hot dip galvanized ring shank nails. The epoxy and modern day high-tech glass, and carbon fibers that reinforce the stress points, were used to encapsulate the inner and outer layers of the hull.

"Shades" is design number 78 by Sam Crocker (which was created circa 1925) and built by Dan Goller. The hull has been faithfully built to Sam's lines. Interior, cabin trunk, cockpit and hardtop were inspired by three vessels: 32' 1926 Eldridge McInnis, 28' 1928 Richardson, and a 27' 1930 Elco. This is a very special boat for the right owner!
