2020 Commercial 099-101-P


Nathaniel Hopkins Condominium at Union Wharf (Unit 2).

Captain Jack wasn’t the only waterfront businessman who realized that summer visitors could easily be induced to rent ramshackle pier sheds. So did Manuel “Ti Manuel” Furtado (1879-1945), the operator of Furtado’s Boatyard, who built a pier next to his boatyard (99-101 Commercial Street) and placed cabins on it. This shed has been owned since 2012 by Bryan Rafanelli and Mark Walsh of Boston, who also own the abutting cabin (99-101 Commercial Street), fashioned from the pilot house of the Albatross II motor yacht, which foundered on the West End Breakwater during the Hurricane of 1938.
