Restoring your property to its former glory is like adding a bit of spice in any relationship. Whether it’s your yacht, your home, farm, or a guesthouse, restoration demands love and attention along with time and money. Many people around the world love their boats and yachts just as much as they love people. Nick Voulgaris III has always been a restoration enthusiast – someone who loves restoring life to inanimate objects.

Nick is the owner of Kerber’s Farm, an entrepreneur, designer, and author of six books on sailing and yachting. He is also acknowledged individually as a tastemaker/author in the New York Times, Washington Post, Departures Magazine, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, The Long-Islander.

His recent publishing, “The Seaside House: Living on the Water,” features homes that are built on water, decorated by some of the best home designers in the industry like Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Steven Gambrel, Ken Fulk, and Celerie Kemble. He also wrote a book named “Hinckley Yachts” that takes a retrospective on yacht building.

Nick Voulgaris III has owned several boats and has been hosting parties and casual get-togethers for his friends. He has literally restored dozens of boats, including the classic Hinckley Bermuda 40 Yawl and two vintage Chris Crafts. These projects were his prime inspirations for writing the book “Hinckley Yachts: An American Icon,” and “Chris-Craft: An American Classic.”

His book “Hinckley Yachts: An American Icon” offers a lush monograph for all boat and yacht enthusiasts, with a forward by David Rockefeller and Vanity Fair review by Disney CEO Bob Iger.  Nick has unearthed numerous documents and photographs, illuminating an unparalleled and extra-ordinary narrative about the evolution of the brand. The volume offers nautical newcomers, fine boatbuilding tips, and restoration advice. The book provides fascinating details to boatbuilding aficionados about Hinckley’s technological advances. Architectural Digest has written a detailed review of the book.

Nick’s take on restoration projects defines the true intentions of a real architect. According to him, yachts and boats have a much bigger purpose, and their restoration is essential by all means. In his words, “When you love and appreciate yachts and restore them, you are not simply the yacht’s owner, but their steward.”

As an author, he aspires to take his readers on a journey that is close to his own experience. He wants his audience to feel the same joy of sailing without even being on the water. He also shared his insights along with pictures that depict the simple beauty and pure grace along with the impeccable beauty that goes into crafting a hand-built yacht.

Kerber’s Farm is one of Nick’s most notable restoration works to date. The Farm was established in 1941, located on the Gold Coast of Long Island. He bought the Farm in April of 2013 and did was according to some commoners was unachievable. His ambitious project of restoring the entire Farm is nothing was astounding and remarkable.

Nick spent his early childhood in that Farm, running errands for his mother. It was only obvious that the place holds a nostalgic feel for him. His motivations were to stop the Farm from ever transforming into something entirely different.

Today, Kerber’s Farm is a focal point for many families and small shop owners in the nearby localities, especially Manhattan. Nick’s restoration efforts brought new life to the Farm, which now offers a market where people can have a pleasant meal, any time of the day. Nick’s restoration plans were not just for business purposes – a Farm is a place for kids to look at chickens while sitting in a beautifully designed outdoor sitting area.

His renovations efforts have cultivated a seriously A-list fan base. Some of the notable personalities include Oprah and Martha Stewart. Oprah Winfrey has a serious love for the pies saying: “The crusts are buttery, and the Carberry filling, my favorite, has just the right amount of tart.”

Nick Voulgaris III is a visionary, someone who has the gift of knowing what possibilities lie ahead. For instance, Kerber’s Farm is unlike any conventional farm; it changes and evolves as the season pass. Kerber’s Farm is one of the few farmsteads on Long Island that serves fresh Maine lobsters in its lobster rolls.  You can also find apples, pies, vegetables, and cider. Other than edibles, the Farm has an extensive offering of gifts, vintage furniture, and two vacation homes available for rent.

Nick’s ambition to expand and grow the Farm doesn’t end here. He aspires to restore every single building on the property and give the community something new to look forward to each time they visit.

For future expansions, Voulgaris says that “Next up is building a farming educational school.” He wants to educate kids on the subject of farming, healthy eating, and sustainability. He is clearly not looking to slow this progress anytime soon and wants more and more people to have a great time at his Farm.

Life for Nick Voulgaris III is exemplary – his restoration efforts are clear evidence that with passion, love, and time anything ordinary can be transformed into something out of this world. The love of the craft is what drives him and is exactly what people experience when they experience something he has touched.
