2011 Paul Mann Custom 81' Convertible


Paul Mann built the 81-footer Georgia Girl, the largest build ever from his North Carolina yard, to great acclaim. Georgia Girl has a 23-foot beam, which allowed the designers to create an open, airy interior, defined by hand-picked cherry veneer in the saloon and cabins. The veneer saves precious weight but still adds an element of class. The saloon includes a long island near the galley, with a granite countertop and three seats for breakfast. The yacht's inner curves and stonework show the yard's ability to craft a boat that is not only fast (40-knot top end), but elegant. The profile, with the long forefoot and tall helm area, also carries a Carolina classic look.

Vessel is Captain Maintained by a knowledgeable owner who cared for her with an open checkbook. If a maintenance item needed to get done it was done. Georgia Girl has been a one owner boat since she was built and lightly used primarily for cruising to the Bahamas.

  • Low Original Hours: 2,450 Hours on Main Engines
  • 5-Stateroom, 6-Head Layout
  • All Yard and Maintenance Records Complete and Up to Date

About Georgia Girl

Award Winning Interior:

Georgia Girl won the Cabinetry category and grand prize in the seventh annual Veneer Tech Craftsman's Challenge™, one of the most highly respected and well-known craftsmanship competitions in woodworking. Besting over 60 entries, the 81-foot Paul Mann features hand selected plain-sliced cherry veneer accented with figured cherry throughout the cabins and saloon, pronounced to be an "elegant yet lightweight solution in a marine project where weight is a significant consideration," by Bill Esler, associate publisher for Vance Publishing/Woodworking Network, and publisher of Wood and Wood Products and Custom Woodworking Business, one of three judges for the 2011 competition.

How Does Georgia Girl Run?

This boat rides smooth, goes fast and remains dry - hard characteristics to combine in a boat this size. "You can make it light and it'll ride hard," Mann says. "Or you can add weight to the boat and make it ride better. But then the boat might throw water unless your running surface is just right." The water leaves the 81's hull just about amidships, keeping everyone dry. "This one reminds me of a 65 on steroids," Mann says.

Engine Room Notes:

It's always a treat to stand up straight in an engine compartment. Georgia Girl's qualifies as extraordinary, with more-than-standing headroom in the engine compartment and work space all the way around each engine. Nothing is inaccessible. All systems, like pumps, watermakers, air conditioning, generators, etc., have redundant systems.
