THE WORLD OF KNAPP BOATS

The Knapps certainly enjoyed living on the water and my discoveries of the various Knapp boats they either owned or sailed on over the decade I worked on the Knapp book ( which I might add is getting very close to publication ) are scattered all over the website going back to 2001. So with that in mind, this page is more or less a central link to all the Knapp boating pages that have appeared before along with a few new marine discoveries.

The Bootlegger Was A Utility Launch At The Knotts Island Estate In Currituck

No Telling What Boats Are In The Large 3 Slip Boathouse

As You Can See, The Boathouse Is Almost As Big As The Mansion Itself

ALTHOUGH HER HOME PORT WAS NY , I AM REASONABLY SURE La Mer WAS DOCKED IN NORTH CAROLINA TOO.

There is a photo here of Knapp's utility launch named "La Mera"

BUILT IN BOSTON IN 1917, THE 72 FOOT "LA MER", MAY OF BEEN THE LARGEST YACHT J. P. KNAPP OWNED.

I WOULD LOVE TO FIND A PHOTO & ALSO DISCOVER WHAT BECAME OF HER.
