About the Owners (current and former)

Craig Kurath: Craig and Julie (deceased) owned a Tampa Bay longliner that was converted to a trawler, and decided it was time to stop roughing it and knew there was only one model of boat that would do. It was just a matter of which one!
Dick and Ann Behan: Owned a West Sail 32 for years and years before making the "geriatric jump" to an LNVT.
Joel Grayson: a lawyer.
Ed Baker: a structural engineer.
Cruising Yachts: Loren and Lani Hart, Owners of Lord Nelson Yachts, had this hull built for themselves.
