Builder History: In 1939, John Trumpy Sr. was named President of the Mathis Yacht Building Co. in Camden, NJ. Joined by sons Donald and John Jr., John Sr. founded John Trumpy & Sons, Inc. In 1947, following a move from Camden to Gloucester, NJ, the company relocated to Eastport, MD. Already recognized as a premier designer and builder of yachts, the company continued to prosper for the next 36 years launching the finest yachts in the world. Sadly, during the sixties, faced with a strike, shortages of skilled woodworkers and a variety of unforeseen circumstances, this legendary icon eventually was forced to close its doors in 1973.

Vessel History: “Sinbad” was built for Fred H. Gordon Jr. of Rochester, New York. Launched in 1970, her design is the famous houseboat model pioneered by John Trumpy, Sr. She remained in the same family since her original delivery, wintering in Florida and summering on the St. Lawrence River. In 2005, Mr. Gordon’s heirs donated “Sinbad” to The Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY. The museum has since sold the boat which is now called “Showtime”. This striking boat is a prime example of Trumpy craftsmanship. She remains in “Palm Beach” condition and continues to cruise the US east coast extensively.
