The rotating crews of PAE staff bringing the N41#10 from Florida up to Rhode Island continues. Currently running the boat are Project Manager Justin Zumwalt, Project Manager Drew Leishman, and Drew’s brother, SE Commissioning Crewmember Bret Leishman. The trio took the handover from Drew and Bret’s parents, aka Nordhavn Chief of Design Jeff Leishman and his wife Nancy. Jeff and Nancy disembarked after a leisurely two-week cruise up the coast from North Carolina.
Wednesday morning the boat was off Cape May, NJ, a perfect spot for Justin and Bret to whip up a little breakfast on the outdoor grill while Drew managed captain duties. The boat is scheduled to arrive in Newport this weekend for an overnight before moving 90 minutes north to Nordhavn Yachts Northeast’s office in East Greenwich, RI. The boat will then be prepped for the Newport International Boat Show before making the trip back down the coast to hit the remaining big east coast boat shows in Annapolis and Fort Lauderdale.
