Time is running out for the 1963 Trumpy Tireless a casualty of Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys, says Jim Moores of Moores Marine, the pre-eminent restorer of old motor yachts in the United States.
The 67.6 foot Trumpy yacht, commissioned by Roger Firestone, sank on Sept. 10 at the dock when a broken piling poked a hole on her starboard side. The owners are coping with the aftermath of Irma and are unable to deal with the boat as well.
"They have asked me to help save this historic yacht," Moores says. "They will sign over this yacht to a new owner with both the commitment and resources to save her. The cost of raising her is estimated at $15,000."
