COASTAL QUEEN was built in 1928 in Maryland by boat builder A.G. Price. She was originally named “A.G. Price” after the builder.
She was used as an oyster buy boat until 1958 when she was purchased by boat builder Slade Dale, who converted her into a double-deck yacht and changed her name to “Coastal Queen.” The vessel received national acclaim in 1965 when the book “The Inside Passage” by Anthony Bailey was published. “The Inside Passage” was about a trip down the inland waterways aboard “Coastal Queen.”
For the last 24 years, she has been owned by a very accomplished racing sailor and used primarily as a tender to his racing program as well as for family & corporate functions. She has had unbelievable care that has been overseen by her owner and her captain who has been aboard since 1985. There has been no expense spared to constantly update and improve "THE QUEEN." Her list of improvements during her current owner's stewardship is impressive and the quality of the work is second to none.
In the summer months, COASTAL QUEEN, can be seen in and around Jamestown & Newport, hosting parties at Block Island Race Week & on Long Island Sound and has been a fixture on the New York Yacht Club Cruise. In the winter, she has been a common site at Key West Race Week, Miami Race Week and the SORC. In between, she has been making her way North and South in "The Ditch" turning heads wherever she goes.
COASTAL QUEEN is most definitely one of a kind and she has improved with age. THE QUEEN is in search of her next custodian to carry her into the future. Please call us today to learn more about this unique opportunity.

The COASTAL QUEEN is most certainly one of a kind and she has been maintained to a level rarely seen on a vessel of this age. Her current owner has spared no expense and her captain has been on board since 1985 ensuring only the finest maintenance, upgrades and care. The attention to detail aboard THE QUEEN - whether it be her gleaming bright-work, her spotless engine room, the interior furnishings or the stock in the bar - is second to none! She is aging gracefully and with the care she has received, she only gets better with time.
Being fortunate enough to spend significant time aboard the COASTAL QUEEN over the past 20 years and now having the honor of listing her for sale, I am happy to answer any questions regarding this outstanding vessel.
