1990 43 Slocum
Divine Miss Em is a heavily built blue water design. She is a doublended cutter with all running rigging led to her deep aft cockpit.
Divine Miss Em is hull # 57, and is the last 43 Slocum to be built by the Hai-O Yacht Building Corporation in Taiwan.
After two years, the original owners sold her back to the Slocum Dealer (Mr. Brown) who had commissioned her. He continued to upgrade Divine Miss Em over the next 14 years installing the Yanmar 75 hp engine, the Northern Lights genset, and removing her fuel & water tanks.
In 2006 Mr. Brown sold Divine Miss Em to her current owners.
Divine Miss Em has been constantly maintained & upgraded over her lifespan with an open checkbook. Current owners can provide receipts to verify the level of care that they have provided to her.
A 2015 survey is available, and the original build blueprints.
