1937 Herreshoff 12 1/2

 

Designed by the famous Nathaniel Herreshoff, the Herreshoff H-12 1/2 has been referred to as the best small boat design ever. Perfect proportions coupled with expert construction equal a timeless design and a boat that lasts for generations. Her hull shape and external lead keel provide stability through the water and her cockpit provides plenty of comfort for 6 adults. Yet she can be easily single handed with her self tending jib.

This is a classic built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. in Rhode Island.  Owned and lovingly cared-for by the same family for 50 years. White cedar on oak hull, oak frames and floors.

Located in Northport ME.  Recent survey available.

1950/1999 Spray Replica 47

[widgetkit id=70]

Built in 1947 for Kenneth Whittier, an editor for Rudder Magazine, and designed to follow Slocum’s Spray around the world, Starbound has safely delivered her several distinguished owners through thousands of blue water miles, including two trips around the globe.

 

From 1995 until 1999 Starbound underwent a massive overhaul, during which time she was replanked with reclaimed old-growth longleaf yellow pine, laid over sawn oak frames. Her entire transom and aft deck were replaced, as were the teak decking and cabin top. She is in fantastic shape, in the water in Bucks Harbor, ME.

 

Starbound appears in two books: Starbound and Deep water cruising, by Former owners Gordon and Nina Stuermer.

 

We have a recent survey of the boat available for reading.

 [widgetkit id=69]

Up top:

Let’s start aft with the Quarterdeck: Here you will find the perfect blend of tradition and comfort. A cushioned bench follows the contours of the taffrail to provide comfortable seating, as well as stowage. The helm has a traditional wood and bronze helm attached to a beautiful teak post with a Ritchie compass encased in a beautiful bronze glass and teak binnacle. The entire cockpit is covered by a stainless framed Bimini cover.

With over seventeen feet of beam, there is plenty of room to work, play, and relax on the house, decks, and foredeck.

Below:

Her galley is huge and perfectly set up to cook and entertain, even in a heavy sea. Amenities include a gimbaled force 10 four burner stove with oven, top loading Sea Frost fridge and freezer, with side access, a huge sink, and tons of well thought out stowage.

Directly to port is the nav station, with a pilot cabin and berth aft of the nav station.

The focus of the main salon is the settee with a fold out table. There is room for six to eight people at the table. The skylight above creates rich ambient light. The beautiful hand carved panel above the settee was carved by a young master in Bali during one the yacht’s circumnavigations. It depicts a scene from the Balinese interpretation of the epic Ramayana, showing Rama rescuing his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana.

Access to the huge quarter lazarette is just inboard and aft of the settee. In the lazarette is easy access to the rudder post and tackle as well as a sail locker, safety gear, etc.

Heading forward to port you will find the large head that includes a separate standup shower. Forward of the head is the master’s cabin with a double bunk and lots stowage, and plenty of room to stretch.

Across from the master cabin is the engine room/workshop. Access to all systems is easy from this uniquely spacious engine room.

Forward of the engine room on the starboard side is the guest cabin with two single bunks and a good amount of stowage.

Head further forward to find a well stocked bookshelf on your way to the huge forecastle. There are four bunks in the Forecastle as well as stowage bins.

Sails & Rigging:

Starbound has a Gaff rigged main, a Marconi Mizzen, A roller furling Genny, and a hank on inner jib, loaded on a self tacking jib boom. She also has a free footed square that hangs from a 40 foot long yard. All sails are tanbark and in good shape.

1957 Block Island 40

Own a piece of history! SEAL is the first Block Island 40 ever built and she has enjoyed a complete refit at the Pendleton Yard on Isleboro, Maine in 2004. Every system has been removed as well as most of the interior joiner work all being replaced new, along with the engine, many of the winches, tanks, wiring, etc. Literally, she is a new boat in her original 1957 hull as all that was left in the refit was the solid glass hull and deck and some interior joiner work. Available only on an attractive 3 year charter with purchase option.

Located in Yarmouth ME.

1960 Ted Hood Tor 36

 

Spirol was designed by the late and legendary Ted Hood. In 1960 Hood designed a forty footer named Robin, the Tor 40 (drawing shown above) which was similar to a previous vessel which had been very successful on the racing circuit.  Spirol is a 36 foot version of this famous design rigged as a yawl and with centerboard. Though used primarily as a cruising sailboat Spirol has been very successful on the racing circuit.  Her sister ship, Rambler, has made four transatlantic crossings – attesting to the seaworthiness of the design and construction of these vessels.  Spirol has been well-cared for by her previous owner, and professionally stored every winter.  She had a refit in 2005 at which time she received:

New sails, new electrical system, roller furler, furuno radar/gps.  Her 40 hsp westebeke is currently being rebuilt (2014).

1975 Cape Dory 25

 

 

There’s plenty of yacht packed into the Cape Dory 25; inside and out you can see the quality and attention to detail that makes Cape Dory boats stand apart from the others. She is a sloop rigged, four berth cruiser with enclosed head, hanging storage, galley with sink, ice box, and stove area. 

She offers a degree of stability hardly ever found in twenty-five footers. The Cape Dory 25 is particularly well suited to areas where wind and weather conditions are apt to change quickly. She was designed to give excellent performance over a wide range of conditions. There is no substitute for the easy motion and ease of steering she and other Cape Dorys offer.

Her specially designed outboard well is located under the after-deck with fuel tanks hidden and protected under a locking lazzerette hatch. 

This one is in great condition. Newer outboard.  Recent survey available. Portland ME.

1982 H Boat 27

[widgetkit id=75]

Description:

One of our crew had the pleasure of bringing this boat up Narragansett Bay in Late October, in a brisk breeze.  She sailed beautifully, and is perfectly rigged for shorthanded sailing.  She is fast and well balanced.  Her sails are in great shape for cruising.  We found her to be in very good shape overall. The H boat class is one of the largest one design classes in Europe.  With her blend of performance, style, and comfort, we understand why.  Located in Warwick RI.

More about the class:  http://www.h-boat-class.org/

Layout:

She has a simple, sporty cockpit with most controls easily reached from the helm, making her a great single/shorthanded sailing machine.  Decks are functional, and easy to get around. 

Below there is far more room than one would expect- with two berths aft affording room for people over 6’.  A good sized v berth forward sleeps two comfortably.  Shelves and cupboards provide ample stowage for racing gear, tools, as well as space for a long weekend’s worth of supplies. A pull out cooler bellow the companionway makes for a great place to store easy grab beverages. 

 

Hull/Decks:

Her decks are in great shape, and are solid to bounce around on.  We have not sounded her hull, but it seems to be in excellent shape.  Her Gel-coat looks great over all. There is one area of non-skid to outboard of the mast on the starboard side that is peeling (see photos).  All areas with hardware/stanchions etc. are all solid.

Sails & Rigging:

She has North Sails main, roller furling Genoa, and spinnaker.

Her spinnaker pole is stored forward below.

All standing rigging looks to be in great shape. 

She has a Harken roller furler, Harken Main sail track and cars, and Harken traveler, and main sheet tackle.

All chain plates, stem and stern plates all look good an are well bedded.

Electrical:

She has a simple electrical system that is not hooked up.  We have not checked any equipment.  Wires run form a battery bank in the port side cupboard to the DC panel.  No lights were tested.

Electronics:

Datamarine Depth sounder

Some extra equipment:

Stainless swim ladder

Saturn 6” compass mounted on wood to fit companionway

8 lb. Danforth anchor and tackle

Removable tiller extension

Cockpit cushions

Hand held bilge pump

Life jackets

Projects/Issues:

Interior cushions are wearing a bit thin.

Fire extinguisher needs to be replaced.

Her outboard engine has not been run in a few years.  It has been stored inside, having been winterized.  It is reportedly in fine shape.  The boat just sails too well to bother with an engine.

Interior wood could be re finished, particularly around port lights.
