Built to last by Darryl Lamb, Maine in 1964, COMPASS ROSE is a traditional and rugged Downeaster that presents herself at the dock in Stonington Connecticut as a well maintained, structurally sound fishing boat. Cedar planked on oak frames, fiberglass on plywood deck, lower helm in wheelhouse upper helmstation on flybridge. Her 220 hp Volvo diesel fires up every time and she runs well and true. This vessel has a fine seakeeping ability. Well equipped with Furuno depthmeter/fishfinder, Robertson autopilot, Northstar GPS plotter and Furuno radar.

COMPASS ROSE is an established charter vessel with Connecticut charter permit, however her layout and form could be configured with pleasure boat refinements by a new owner.

COMPASS ROSE is a unique vessel, one that was built to last, and certainly has. She is thoroughly seaworthy and in nice structural condition. Reliable, rugged and tested she ready for a new lease of life as a charter/sportsfishing vessel or with some adaptation a traditional Downeast cruiser to be proud of.
