80' Trumpy Yacht S.S. Sophie Leaving Maximo Marina, St. Petersburg, Florida PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROBERT NEFF

During the Winter, S.S. Sophie docks at Maximo Marina, St. Petersburg, Florida. The 80' Trumpy extends beyond the covered slip. The teak wood requires constant maintenance to maintain its luster. The aft is sometimes covered. On occasion the crew will rotate the boat in the slip. In Spring, the S.S. Sophie makes the journey to Delaware for the summer. If you would like to see her in person, stop by the Maximo Seafood Shack for Tampa Bay's freshest grouper. S.S. Sophie is docked under cover across the pier.

ARTIST STATEMENT: Robert Neff’s contemporary art is dynamic and vibrant, and engages the senses. His photography and storytelling are the inspiration and basis for his fine art. Nature and life’s colors, tones, and shapes are transformed into mixed media art work. Design studies are used to explore geometrics, color, and patterns. As your perspective changes, so does the design. His approach changes how your vision interprets everyday experiences.

During his solo show at Art Miami’s Spectrum Miami, art lovers were drawn into his fine art work. His style drew comparisons to Vasarely and the Op Art movement. One collector from Uruguay compared his style to "Constructivism" and the great Uruguay artist, Garcia.

Robert’s fine art constructs a new perspective that tells a story you can appreciate and share. Never again will you take the world for granted nor see it in the same manner.
