Showing Instructions Please note that all of our vessels are shown by prior appointment ONLY! We ask that that you give us at least 24 hours notice (even more if possible) by email or phone before you wish to see one of our boats. That way we can be sure and block out some time for you to see the boat! We do not want to arrive to an empty office because we are out showing a boat to your neighbor! Many of our boats are kept off-site & sometimes we can meet you at the marina/yard where the boat is located, or nearby and save you time traveling to Portside Yacht Brokers unnecessarily. We look forward to hearing from you!

1985 Sutton Schooner Marconi Rig

Jade Lady is truly a one-of-a-kind steel schooner.  She has voyaged more than 30,000 miles and has become known throughout New England, the Chesapeake, Bermuda, and the far corners of the Caribbean for her beauty under sail and her proven offshore record.

Jade Lady was designed by George Sutton, the renowned steel boat designer and builder (Sutton Boat Works) of Tarpon Springs, FL and St. Augustine, FL during the 70's and 80's.  She was built in St. Augustine by Dennis Schreiber, a well-known steel boat builder who collaborated with George Sutton.  Jade Lady has had only two owners since her construction. 

A shipwright himself, her previous owner took on the two-year project of finishing this beautiful boat, employing his fine joiner skills to craft an interior using solid mahogany, teak, and ash. Her interior was built with an eye to practicality, comfort and safety at sea.

Jade Lady has rounded bilges (rolled steel) - a very special and unusual feature on steel boats of this size, most of which are hard chine.  She is a dream to sail, with a sea kindly motion in a variety of conditions, and a fair turn of speed as proven by her trophies from many Great Schooner Races.

Virtually every system on the boat was updated in 2013-2014. They also added new Bomar Hatches to the boat.   Jade Lady is Coast Guard documented for both Coastwise and Recreation.  Recent updates include:  new wiring throughout the vessel, an entirely new fuel system, all new PVC pressure-fitted plumbing system, new exhaust hoses, new through hull fittings, a Fireboy fire suppression system in the engine room, and high water alarm in the bilge.  There are two new VacuFlush heads and new sink faucets.  The standing rigging has been updated, and the sails have less than one season of use.  The holding tanks have been updated; the boat currently has a black and gray water-holding tank configuration.   Therefore, she is completely environmentally friendly as a zero-discharge boat. 

The current owners plans have changed, so Jade Lady is on the market for only the second time since her construction.  Jade Lady is as sound, safe, and seaworthy a boat as you are going to find.  If you are looking for a classic vessel that draws attention in every port, Jade Lady is worth your consideration.  This unique schooner is ready to take you anywhere you desire in safety, comfort and style.
