Northrop and Johnson is offering a classic yacht for brokerage sale: SS Sophie, an 80-foot Trumpy that launched in 1947.

SS Sophie has a unique construction history. Trumpy built her hull at its shipyard in New Jersey, then towed it to an Annapolis, Maryland, shipyard for completion.

The yacht accommodates six guests and has a salon with a day-head. Befitting her history, SS Sophie has a forward salon known as the "card room." She has a lounge area on her boat deck in addition to the aft deck for which Trumpy yachts of this era were known.

SS Sophie was originally commissioned by George W. Codrington, who served as president of the National Association of Engine and Boat Manufacturers and was instrumental in organizing powerboat shows after World War II. The yacht launched as Seaplay and was later known as Natamor II, Seaway and Beau Rivage. She was rechristened SS Sophie in 1998, after the new owner's beloved springer spaniel.

Asking price: $925,000
