We have long been familiar with MEMORY V (ex Winnie of Bourne and Take Five), and know her to be a truly exceptional Concordia.  The initial rebuild by Peter Gallant was particularly well thought out and executed, and the subsequent work by Rockport Marine is to the highest of standards.  Her cosmetics are stunning, and she sails exceptionally well with her rig modifications.  In many ways she is "like new", and is highly recommended.  She is now back on the market because of changes in her owner's circumstances and is an exceptional opportunity to own one of the best!

Historical Comments

MEMORY V, ( x WINNIE OF BOURNE) is hull number 11, was built in 1952 for John Parkinson.    For nearly three decades she was a presence in New England waters.  His cruising in Buzzard’s Bay is chronicled in his book The Bay and the Sound, 1968, by Little Brown with photographs by Norman Fortier.  In 1960 after the Newport to Bermuda Race he made passage to Portugal, Scotland and Scandinavia cruising the Baltic and the Gulf of Bothe. A recent issue of WoodenBoat Magazine reprises the cruise.  She completed six Newport to Bermuda races: 1954, 1958, 1960, 1962 and 1964.

In 1986 Peter Gallant purchased her from the estate of William Glenn, Parkinson’s co-watch captain.  He began an extensive restoration in 1996 involving 6,000 man hours.  His re-engineering and redesign improved strength, livability, longevity and performance.  The interior was entirely rebuilt in the spirit of Concordia and all spars, cockpit coamings, seats, hatches, handrails, toe rails, cleats, etc., are new.

In 2008 J. Arvid Klein and Cynthia C. Crimmins purchased MEMORY V from Peter Gallant and undertook upgrades to her electronics and sail inventory.

In August 2014 during a NYYC race, MEMORY V, on starboard tack in her final start sequence was rammed and sunk by a port tack boat not in her class.  She went down in eight feet of water on a sandy bottom. She was subesquently moved to Rockport Marine and underwent complete restoration at a cost of $275, 000.  A digitized reconstruction of her hull indicated no deformation.   A pre-launch survey required by her insurance carrier is available.
