The Colorful History of Constellation

“B. J. Harris has been a licensed Master Mariner for decades. She has logged tens of thousands of miles on boats of all sizes, including an eighty foot classic John Alden ocean racer, an engineless fifty-two foot Sam Crocker classic cutter, and a powerful sixty foot Gulf Star. Her love of the sea is apparent at her St. John Properties’ real estate office–filled with photos and models of classic racing yachts, and at her rental home, Captain’s View–filled with photos of new and old classic yachts, ships lights, sextant and other nautical gear.

Being the proud ‘caretaker’ of a Swan, one of the finest yachts built and a boat described as both beautiful and powerful, has been one of B. J.’s fondest dreams for many years. The joy and dedication she brings to Constellation will be evident to all who see them together–truly a match made in heaven.
