1942 Wheeler 83 Footer Antique in Beaufort, North Carolina

Stock #077280

This is a yacht you have to see to appreciate. What a rare piece of history that has been redone with the upmost craftsmanship and top of the line materials. She will be pristine, practically brand new, and literally one of a kind once her refurb is complete. This is a yacht for a buyer who wants one unlike the rest.

NOEL is a true piece of American history. She was part of the flotilla in the Normandy invasion in WWII, (known as an 83 footer by the Coast Guard), starred in a John Wayne movie "High and the Mighty." 83370 is the first of the two white Coast Guard Cutters leaving the dock, when they are off to rescue the plane.
