General Boats happily lives half way down (or up) the US East coast in a semi-countrified setting just outside the very old and charming village of Edenton, NC. Edenton is tucked away at the Northern shore of Albemarle Sound.
Albemarle Sound is one of our country's most unique bodies of water: Largest brackish water estuary in the U.S. (second largest if you are counting saltier water). Sail year round in mostly storm proof weather. Just dress a bit warmer in January, if winds are from the north. And most amazingly, there are no tides, yet you sail off to anywhere in the world. This delightful water is yet to be discovered. For now It is all ours. However, that may change with the completion of I-87 putting Edenton on the map. GB is that rare boat company that also builds used boats. That inspiration may have emanated from our boats being built and rebuilt among the remains of an old World War 2 Marine Base. 9 industrial acres are here, should the R27 ever go public.
That such a dilapidated facility turns out a boat that was rated number one of the top 100 production boats in an internet survey, is a tribute to a dedication to give the buyer the best 22 foot sailboat his or her money can buy - and to rebuild it to her or his wish list outfitting and colors.
A recycled Rhodes buyer’s 16 year old dream turned into a reality with the practicality of The Rhodes Used Boat Corral: “I fell in love with the Rhodes 22 at the Annapolis Boat Show 16 years ago. This Friday Elton delivered my new ‘to me‘ recycled dream boat to SC. I sailed on my first Rhodes years ago with an owner who had his boat on the market, reluctantly. He already had a bid on it pending a survey. If things did not work out I would be the next in line. It was a confirmatory sail for me. The boat felt as great in the water as it had looked on a trailer at the show. I was ‘next in line’ on a number of Rhodes over the next few years. Always the bride’s maid and never the bride brought me to Edenton to see the new Corral. Stan invited me out for a different kind of confirmatory sail. I had this personal agist nagging thought that I might be too old for this dance. I had retired but Stan, only 84 at the time, proved to me by example, that I had at least 20 something more years of sailing ahead....with this 20 something boat I said yes to a recycled category.”
Here is how his recycling input turned out:
