Bob Sonntag's 1971 Yankee Dolphin, Hull #235, SOLD, Eastpointe (Lake St. Clair) Michigan (updated June 5, 2012)  

October 1, 2012. We received the following email from Dan Hofstetter. We are standing by for more news.

Hi Ron

Jim Griffith and I bought Dolphin #235 from Bob Sontagg yesterday and trailed her to Wilmette, Illinois. I’m quite excited!

Regards, Dan


April 5, 2012 Bob Sonntag checked in with his Yankee #235. She is at the Jefferson Beach Marina, Eastpointe, Michigan, and is For Sale. She is our 200th Found Dolphin.

Thank you for listing my boat in your registry. My boat doesn't have a name. The hull number is 235. I would like to read about the history of Yankee Yachts, inc. It would be great if you can direct me to some information about the Yankee. Done! I am going to check out your website.
Bob S.


April 4, 2012. DFI Mark Spruell (Yankee #203, Paradiso) brought this boat to our attention. She was listed on Craigslist and may be a newly found Dolphin. Staff is working on getting more information. Here is the ad, photos and link directly to the ad.

June 5, 2012. Thanks to the work of DFI Mark Spruel (Paradiso, Yankee #203), and the help of the webmaster at the Ford YC in Grosse Ile, Michigan we have made a connection . We think this boat was Snashtrae, owned by Bill Lockwood and sailed out of the Ford YC in the mid to late 1970's. Click to go there
