Constructed in Algonac, Michigan by Chris-Craft Corporation for Rex Marine Center, certified by Eugene Sabin, Master Carpenter for Chris-Craft. Alvin H. Levy purchased the vessel from Rex Marine Center and had her documented with the USCG, named "Re Ality" and moored in NYC. Rex Marine Center was started as a family business in 1936 and was Connecticut's first Chris-Craft dealer. Alvin Levy was Rex Marine Center's 165th customer. The Gardella family still operate Rex Marine Center.
Previous owners extensively cruised New England, and after being transported to Seattle in 1979, throughout the Pacific Northwest to include at least five Alaskan excursions. Over the years, the vessel has gone by a handful of different names, and along with a tasteful and extensive refit by owners Mike Schultz & Steven Sanford, she was renamed Itineras. In July 2013, Mike & Steve were married on Itineras' fore deck while anchored in Liberty Bay at Poulsbo, WA. Additionally during Mike & Steve's tenure, Itineras regularly participated in numerous events with the CYA and the Olympic Yacht Club, notably hosting the weekly Duck Dodge judges on Lake Union.
I was fortunate to find Itineras on the market in early 2022, as I was looking for a suitable liveaboard worthy of cruising the local lakes and broader Puget Sound. (Mike and Steve now own Luxuria.) Coincidental mutual friends connected me to Mike & Steve, and thanks to their comprehensive and thorough record-keeping, I was able confidently purchase M/Y Itineras with a solid understanding of her unique build.
