    Having recently completed a 3+ year and $4 million + authentic restoration, the 80’ Trumpy motor yacht BB has returned to her original 1947 splendor. Understatedly called a “houseboat” by her designers because the yachts offered her owners all the comforts & amenities of home, Trumpy was considered the Rolls-Royce of American Yachting. Known for their meticulous craftsmanship owners of Trumpy yachts included the likes of Howard Hughes, the Guggenheims, Dupont’s, Chrysler& Dodge families.

    BB has generous walk-around decks and high stations with varnished teak cap rails. The aft deck has a large custom built varnished teak oval dining table which offers spacious seating for 8, with a curved banquette aft and 4 sturdy mid-century teak dining chairs.

    The “card room” – which doubled as the original owner’s office, is located forward. The card room offers great views while underway or at anchor and is a wonderful space with a cozy settee aft, and a forward ¾ day bed for sleeping an additional guest. The opening windows have custom wood venetian blinds and port and starboard doors provide excellent natural cross ventilation for an alternative to the yacht’s new air conditioning system. The foredeck is graced by a large centerline sliding teak hatch for deck access to crew quarters & galley.

    Bob & Sharon have been a couple since 1989. Since 2000, after moving to BVI, they have been enjoying their career together, as a professional charter boat team.

    Bob has had a passion for sailing since his early teens, where he sailed the Great Lakes of Canada. He owned his first boat in his early twenties & moved to the Cayman Islands in 1992 where he started his professional sailing career.
    As a captain, Bob has sailed the east coast of the United States from Miami to Maine, most of the Caribbean Islands, crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Spain, to Italy & France.
    In his spare time you will find Bob listening to music (he owned a record store before he started professional sailing) or enjoying the outdoors.

    Sharon started sailing after meeting Bob. After many years in the beauty business (she owned and operated a hair salon and several bath and beauty boutiques) she turned her creative talents to the galley. While sailing with Bob she has developed an international cooking style and greatly enjoys catering to all dietary and culinary needs and preferences. When not in the galley Sharon enjoys walking, hiking, yoga, travel and of course, finding that great next meal.

    Dan Szymczak
    First Officer/Engineer

    First Officer and Engineer Dan Szymczak grew up on the water in Fairfield County, Connecticut, before earning an English degree at the University of Texas in Austin. On Lake Travis, he raced on a J/80 sloop, then bought his first sailboat, a 20-ft Gulf Coast sloop. After attending graduate school, and earning an MFA in fiction, he moved to Brooklyn where he taught English literature and public speaking at a business school in Manhattan, while also working for three years on a day sail schooner in the beautiful New York Harbor. Deciding that he wanted to make his career on the water, he found work aboard an expedition ship where he spent a year at sea, exploring the Sea of Cortez, the rivers of Washington State, the inside passage to South East Alaska, as well as Costa Rica, and the Panama Canal. And after years of deliveries, day sails, and charters in NYC, South Florida, the Bahamas, and Newport RI, he’s now the first officer / engineer aboard M/Y BB, where he loves to, as he says, keep the lights on and the engines running.
