Broker’s Comment
"Eyerly" has been a fixture here at Erie yacht Club. She was a factory Demo and made her way on her own bottom across the Atlantic to the Southern US where her current and only owner purchased her and had it shipped to Erie. As a Factory Demo she is loaded with racing gear and upgrades. Her owner has also made many upgrades including repowering her. "Eyerly" has an enviable racing record. Her Lake Erie PHRF is 78, no slouch even compared to more recent models. Reluctantly, health and her owner’s age force her sale.

Tracy has sailed for over 30 years. As a former winner at Youngstown Level Regatta, he met Don Finkle and built a relationship that lead to his position at RCR. In addition to sailing, Tracy has a USCG Master’s Captain’s License. He considers himself lucky to have turned my avocation into his vocation. Sharing his knowledge and love for sailing and boating in general with both experienced boaters and those new to the sport has given him great pleasure and added new friendships to his life. As a founding member of Sail Erie helped shape the group of sailors with common interests focused on cruising and educational activities in the Greater Erie area. Tracy joined RCR Yachts in late 2001 and helped open RCR Erie in the spring of 2002. Since then he has enjoyed building our Erie office as a successful part of Erie and our regions boating community. Hundreds of boats, both power and sail have been sold from this office and their owners have joined the RCR Family of owners. We continue to focus our efforts to making the buying and boating experience a good one for our customers.
