COA receives donation from Paul Mann Custom Boats, Inc.

Paul and Robin Mann of Paul Mann Custom Boats donated a handcrafted conference table to the College of The Albemarle Foundation.

The table, made of various hardwoods, was built using remnant pieces repurposed from Mann custom interiors. The top is made from teak and holly with ash sea-rails. The sea-rail is similar to that of the traditional nautical sea-rail.

The legs are made of poplar and there is a teak band around the base of the table top. All building materials were from unused interior boat selections.

With the closing of the Paul Mann Custom Boats facility, great efforts were taken to preserve items that held special meaning to the company, stated a COA press release. When speaking about a handcrafted conference table donated to the College of The Albemarle Foundation, Robin said, “Finding places for 33 years of tools and business items has been challenging, but also rewarding. We have made many important and meaningful decisions over the years at this table and we hope that it will bring others the same fulfilling memories as it has brought to us. We were pleased that the college was able to find just the right spot.”

“I want to thank Paul and Robin Mann for their generous gift of a beautifully crafted conference table, designed and made by Paul, to be placed in the new Dare Campus conference room. The custom teak table made from the wood cabins of the many yachts produced by Paul Mann Custom Boats is a very special gift as the college honors the boating industry here on Roanoke Island. The COA Dare Campus will dedicate the conference room table to Paul Mann to thank him not only for his support to our community but also for his wonderful partnership with the College of The Albemarle,” stated Tim Sweeney, dean of COA’s Dare Campus.
