1448 Ocean Rose -- Hingham, MA

Owner (email) Steve and Gwen Sayian (ssayian*spam-no-more*hotmail.com)
Hull Number 1448
Year 1999
How Boat Was Named We bought our 34 in December of 2005 after owning a 1983 C-30 for 10 years. We did the usual listing of Greek God names, places, and things and came up with nothing that inspired us. Sailing in Boston Harbor we have over 250 miles of coastline available from the many harbor islands. The islands are populated with a variety of flora and fawna, one of which is the Rosa Rugosa or 'beach rose' as it is commonly called. The rose is a bright red when it blooms and also produces the edible 'rose hips' that are also popular as a perfume. The 'beach rose' gave my wife the idea for the name but leaving out the word 'beach' as we didn't want any name with 'beach' rock' or other hard, non-navigable surface in the name. So the name of 'Ocean Rose' was adopted. The name is proudly displayed on both the Port and Starboard stern quarters with a graphic of a rose between the two words. We have a 9 year-old daughter and after I had just put the name on the boat, she was standing by the boat and my wife said "that's the real Ocean Rose".
