    A real estate broker for a Maine island once owned by Arctic explorer Robert Peary says the island has a potential buyer.

    Karen Reiche tells the Portland Press Herald that Crab Island was placed under agreement Sept. 14, close to a month after it was put up for sale.

    The 1-acre island is priced at $950,000, and it includes two private beaches and a camp.

    Reiche says the deal has not closed yet, and the buyers do not want to be identified.
