Kumatage, which means the path of light upon the sea cast by a celestial body, was built by the Jarvis Newman Boatyard of Southwest Harbor, Maine with a handlaid fiberglass hull and deck assembly. She was then completed by Carl Chase of Brooksville, Maine, who finished several Friendship Sloops. She has a clean layout below with mahogany trim and sleeps 4. Her current owner sails her out of Falmouth, Maine, keeping up with her maintenance. Kumatage offers a boat enthusiast some of the modern conveniences along with the beautiful classic lines of Friendship Sloops and is ready to sail in 2018!
