Reuben is an artist with a love of the Maine coast and eye for the details. Before starting his creative career, Mr. Robert H. Eddy had already discovered that Reuben had the temperament and enthusiasm to work in his shop.
By age ten Reuben took his first sailing lessons at the Camden Yacht Club with some encouragement from Robert, who is a life-long club member. After learning to sail, Reuben's parents bought him his first sail boat - a classic wooden turnabout that he sailed whenever the tide was right. Furthering his love for sailing Reuben made his first sailboat purchase in summer of 1997, a 15', 1935 Cape Cod Nimblet, which he continues to sail today with his two daughters.
Reuben left for college in the fall of 1997 to start his creative education. Reuben graduated with honors from Colby-Sawyer College in 2001 with fine arts degrees in graphic design and studio arts and began gathering creative experience as a graphic designer, photographer, painter and printmaker.
Reuben's apprenticeship with Robert came to fruition some years later in 2005 after an invitation to assist at the model shop during an open studio tour. Today, Reuben has mastered the art of jewelry making and the plethora of skills necessary to build some of the worlds finest yacht models.
