Quick Facts


Owner Comments

10/22/20 – Yes I still have My Maria.  She is now home ported in Kittery Me.  Actually at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. The boat is listed in the Bristol user group on yahoo. She is a 1968, hull #24. I’ve had her since 2006. Old videos of her under sail on YouTube just Search for Bristol 27.

She had some refitting done:

  1. I rebuilt the bottom of the keel from rudder shoe to the top of the forefoot.
  2. Re-core of the coach roof,
  3. Built cabinets for the galley and the Port side shelf is cabinet.
  4. Just opened the motor well up by 3″ in the length to accommodate an Evinrude 15 hp four stroke.
  5. Filled in the center of the v- berth and made the cushion.
  6. Made cockpit cushions
  7. Replaced the Lexan in the port lights.
  8. Replaced all the standing rigging.
  9. Replaced most of the running rigging.

10/20/20 – First learned of this boat when Andrew Dryver reached out via Facebook on August 30, 2011.  Reached out to Andrew today (10/20/20) to see if he’s still sailing My Maria.  In the meantime, here’s a great image of this My Maria under sail:
