The EYC has a new coach boat

The EYC has replaced a Sea Doo personal watercraft with a much more effective craft for teaching, coaching and running races:  a 17′ Kiwi/McLaughlin purpose-built RIB coach boat, powered by a 50 HP 4-stroke Honda, the “Aaron R. Moore.”  The acquisition of this boat brings the EYC’s powerboat fleet to six, now all powered by modern 4-stroke outboard motors.

The EYC’s powerboat fleet enables our sailing school (one of the largest in the United States) to teach multiple lesson sections simultaneously while maintaining our standards of safety and low student/instructor ratio.


Thanks to the following persons who made the purchase of this boat possible:  Steve Sauter, for finding us a great deal on this like-new demo model with only 40 hours on it; the Moore family (Sherry, Rob, Adam and Barb), for organizing the event at which funds for this boat were donated; Adam Moore for finding a perfect trailer at a heavily discounted price; Rex Kahr for delivering the trailer to Door County; David Meissner, who donated the boat lift on which the Aaron R. Moore now sits; and the Smith Family Fund (Mike and Sue Smith, and Sarah Hawkin), whose $10,000 donation to the EYC’s Aaron R. Moore fund was earmarked for this boat.
