CYGNUS II is a handsome power cruiser designed by L.L. Kromholz and built for coastwise cruising by Jacobson & Petersen, Inc. Cygnus II is an award winning 1930 cruising yacht powered by economical turbo Yanmar diesels. Outstanding layout with huge aft deck, gorgeous wheelhouse and main salon, two heads with showers (one with tub). Major hull rebuild including stem, floor timbers, planks and ribs completed in 2019. She made a 500 mile "sea trail last Fall from NY to MD". Owners ran very successful "cocktail cruise" charters with her in 1000 Islands. She is perfect as a day cruiser or live aboard. A head turner in any harbor, Cygnus II has won major awards at Mystic, Ocean Reef, Clayton and Alexandria Bay. Photos of her have appeared in many publications, and a major article was written about an earlier restoration in Wooden Boat.
