2008 Hunter 33 in like new condition. Super large cockpit with catbird seats and nice, back supported seat cushions. Sleeps 4 adults and 2 children comfortably with A/C (dockside) and 2 private staterooms. Roller furling main and jib make her easy to sail. A perfect bay cruiser. All the cool gunk holes from Baltimore to Galesville (including Rock Hall, the Magothy, Severn and South Rivers, etc.) are an easy one day sail from Mill Creek.
Encore is a beautiful 2008 Hunter 33 in "like new" condition. This is an incredibly easy boat to sail, with a roller furling main and jib, and all the in hauls, out hauls and sheets leading aft to clearly labeled and easy to use clutches. She's not a racer, and made for very comfortable sailing. However, her large main and B&R rig means Encore sails extremely well, and makes good time at all points of sail.
Encore is docked in Mill Creek, which is arguably the most convenient (just outside of Annapolis) and prettiest spot in the Bay. The less than a 200 yard transit to the Bay has Osprey nests on every channel marker, and you get incredible close-ups of both these magnificent birds (and their chicks) as well as herons and others on your way out. As soon as you leave the creek, you have incredible views of the Bay Bridge and the entire Bay.
With three berths, two private cabins and air conditioning, Encore is perfect for a family overnight adventure either dockside (with air conditioning) or hanging on the hook (with a cool breeze). Baltimore, Galesville and numerous other cool gunk holes and marinas in which to stay overnight are all well within a non-aggressive day sail from Mill Creek.
Please try to arrange your rental with enough advance notice for us to schedule a mutually convenient time to ensure you know everything you need to know to have a fun, safe day on the Bay. Once we have your itinerary, we can send you lots of information about Encore and the surrounding area via Boatbound.
Steep, reciprocal discounts available for other Boatbound sail and power boat Owners who have boats in areas we want to sail.
Note: The refrigerator is on the blink. However, Encore has a built-in cooler. So, keeping food and drinks cold just requires ice. We ordered a new refrigerator, and plan to install it as soon as it arrives (in July).
Had a great day sailing on the bay around Annapolis. Encore is very well maintained and setup for sailing on the bay. I grew up sailing around Annapolis but my family were novices. Boat was setup with furling jib, and furling main with all lines run back to the cockpit so with minimal instruction everyone was part of the crew and able to take the wheel. Had a great day sailing from the Bay Bridge to Thomas Point light. Winds picked up to 18-22 knots in the afternoon and the boat performed very well. Joe provided great overview of the boat and complete paper departure and return documents. Family had fun and would love to do it again soon.
Spending a long weekend on Encore was a real treat! Encore is in super shape and sailed beautifully. The cabin and motor are all in pristine condition. Lauren & Joe were awesome at communicating about Encore and had detailed instructions which made the experience that much better!
Our family had a great time on the Encore. The boat was in excellent condition, was fully functional, and easy to sail. The in-mast furling was really great. The boat condition was better than others I have sailed. Joe was very helpful in explaining the layout of the vessel and its operation. The marina was very nice too - simple but clean and very well maintained. We plan to come back again in the future, and may consider a multi-day cruise at some point.
