The traditional beauty of the Shelter Island Runabout belies her incredible performance capabilities.
Her moderate V hull was designed with 15-degree dead rise at the transom and a narrow 10-foot beam to provide a smooth, comfortable ride at all speeds. Combine this with noise abatement and vibration reduction systems and you have the perfect harmony between handsome styling, speed and comfort.
Her deck was designed with flexibility and safety in mind. An appropriately sized side deck is provided to walk forward without sacrificing valuable interior cabin or cockpit space. The cockpit and deck incorporate safe handholds for adverse conditions. The forepeak contains the anchor with rode and provides additional storage for fenders and docklines.
Her helm area provides safety from the elements behind a windshield and canvas tan top. To starboard is a STIDD Admiral Series helm chair, steering station with engine instrumentation and ample space for navigational equipment. On the port side, there is an additional STIDD chair for a passenger, plus two more, plus a dash storage compartment. There is ample storage under the cockpit sole.
Her interior bulkheads are white and trimmed in native cherry joinery work with flush panelled doors. Interior varnish is done in a traditional rubbed effect finish. Ample storage is provided in assorted lockers for clothing, food, and dinnerware. Five-inch thick cushions provide comfort for sitting or sleeping while four opening ports and overhead opening hatch allow natural lighting and abundant ventilation.
GREYLING has been an impeccable yacht in all waters for many years. I have personally piloted this yacht around Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Long Island Sound in addition to the Chesapeake Bay, and she turns heads in every location. She has a hull that can handle any sea state and the power to get around weather. As family needs grow, so do yachts, so GREYLING is ready for a new owner to keep her in the Bristol fashion that she always has been.
