I've seen Mr. Chamber's yacht a few times from the water. But yes, he is New Englands Largest car dealer...I believe that he started out by selling copy machines and now is a millionaire. If your lucky, in the summer, you can see his yacht at home on the CT River in Connecticut. Nice boat!

She appears to me to have a very similar design to Alfa IV, hasn't she ?

Brilliant anyway...

Remy, not exactly ALFA FOUR - I think the color of the hull makes you think that - but look some more at ZENOBIA and you'll see almost her twin sister.

Another yacht, from a different yard, clearly based on the same idea as the A&R yachts, is SARAH from Amels.

After so many years of being for sale the A&R "Excellence III" was sold quite recently. Name change already too! "Dream" fits onto her nameplates now.

True, however, my link not only responded to a member's query, it also provided a "plug" for another member - top, right sidebar.
