Event Details

 

On the heels of WWII, Bath Iron Works began its last and most technologically advanced private yacht – Haida.  Dubbed “America’s Diesel Driven Yacht” at the end of the golden era of yachting, Haida was designed by naval architect John H. Wells and built for Major Max Fleischmann. At her launch in 1947, Haida represented the pinnacle of American shipbuilding and benefited from the technologies invented during World War II. As she approaches her 70th birthday, a team of naval architects, marine engineers, carpenters, electricians, and shipbuilders are working to restore her to its former glory while bringing the machinery and systems into the 21st century. Join Naval Architect Hampton Dixon as he shares more of the yacht’s history and explains the technology behind keeping Haida an example of why "Bath Built is Best Built".
