Start to Finish Wesmac 50 / Kathleen IV
The bare hull arrived at our facility in the spring of 2005 and was launched on August 5th 2008. Her maiden voyage included a presentation at the 2008 Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors Boat Show in Rockland. Many thanks to those who contributed their expertise to this project: the gracious owners for their impeccable taste in interior design, the entire crew at Johanson Boatworks, and engineering by Mark Fitzgerald.
