In October 2003, in anticipation of an out-of-country move for six months of each year, Kensington was sold to new owners and fellow members of the Classic Yacht Association who reside on a tributary of the Chesapeake in Virginia.  On November 11, 2003, Kensington left Seattle for her new home. The decision to part with her was not made easily, and her loss was felt throughout the Pacific Northwest classic boating community, but it was rather romantic to consider that after 75 years on Puget Sound she was going back to the waters where she was launched 80 years earlier.
A visit in September 2004 to check on Kensington confirmed that she could not have found better stewards.  Her new owners have completed a massive amount of work on her, and hope to have her back in operation for the summer of 2005.  She will look better than she ever has when the work is completed, and already she has been returned to the same structural integrity as the day she slid into the Wicomico River in 1924.
