The Nathanial Hereshoff designed 12 1/2 is one of the most popular small daysailers of the last century and for good reason. They are known for good sailing characteristics as well as being forgiving of errors of judgement.
This vessel is in generally excellent condition. Built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. in
Rhode Island. White cedar on oak hull, oak frames and floors.

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.

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.
More about the class: http://www.h-boat-class.org/
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.
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.
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.
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
Hand held bilge pump
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.
This extremely well looked after Silverton offers far more comforts, amenities and space than one would expect in such an affordable boat. Her low profile makes for a very stable boat that moves through the water easily. Her former owners have recently put over $40,000 in improvements, and it shows.
Her cockpit and aft deck offer plenty of room to entertain and navigate. The helm station offers a commanding view of the entire boat, and the sea around her. Twin engine controls and hydraulic steering make for easy boat handling. All instruments are laid out for optimal use.
Room for three in the mate’s chair makes for plenty of space for those extra eyes on watch. The aft deck has room for at least five more to sit or dance along to the music streaming from her outdoor speakers. Access to the swim platform from the aft deck allow for an easy escape to the water, or the water toys on those lazy summer days anchored off your favorite cove. Head up to the foredeck to lie out and enjoy the sun’s rays.
A navy blue canvas/isinglass cover zips on easily to keep the elements out. It is in very good shape and stored below.
Below one will find a large bright salon with loads of headroom. The salon table seats eight with two swinging bar style stools that open toward the galley. The table can also drop down to make a double bed. A television and stereo are located below the Electrical panel.
The galley is laid out lengthwise on the starboard side with a two burner electric/Alcohol stove, a large stainless sink with pressurized hot and cold water, refrigerator, microwave, and loads of stowage.
The master state room is forward with a queen size bed, and loads of storage to either side of the bed.
A private guest stateroom is located aft of the salon to port. It has a double bed and a bedside seat that has been used for extra stowage.
Aft to port there is a good sized head with a separate shower with hot and cold running water, a sink, a marine toilet plumed to an updated 25 gallon holding tank, and plenty of locker space for toiletries.
The entire interior is climate controlled by a king Air system.

Projects/issues: People expect donated boats (all boats really) to come with major issues. This boat has very few that we have found. She is for the most part a drop and go boat. It is always smart to have your own survey done before taking delivery of any boat. We do our best to insure there are no surprises by listing things we have found:
There may be a minor leak in the forward hatch. It may need a new gasket.
The port corner of the swim platform has a chunk missing.
There are some minor cracks and crazing in the gelcoat.
The starboard engine is new. The gauges indicate 43 hours. We are double checking to make sure the hours are correct for the port engine.
A Pulsifer Hampton is the union of form and function. Pleasure boaters and commercial fisherman alike appreciate and respect the Pulsifer Hampton. This proven downeast style matched with Yanmar diesel power is a great cruiser for gunkholing along the coast.
This one is in excellent condition with low hours.
Remarks from the recent surveryor's report:
This vessel is fundamentally sound throughout and has obviously been professionally
maintained over the years. It was constructed using strip plank consequently there are no
caulked seams. There has been no separation of the planking either between planks or
from the frames. The strips are 1’’ x 1 14” white pine. The oak frames are 1 ½” x 7/8”
and in excellent condition and are fastened by Monel ring nails clinched over. A few
frames have fractures at the hard turn of the bilge and these have been “sistered”. The
varnish as can be seen in the accompanying photos is in excellent condition, the stem is
sound and the keel is straight. The floor timbers are in sound condition. The sheer clamp
is 4 ½” x ¾” oak and in excellent condition. The vessel has 1” oak toe rails and 1 ½” oak
rub rails in excellent condition. There are splash guards forward. The transom is quartersawn
white oak. The decks are cedar on fore and aft decks with washboards being white
pine all sheathed and in excellent condition.
The engine is a three-cylinder Yanmar diesel model 3JH2-TE with 47HP with 248 hours
of use. All belts, hoses, clamps, hoses, gaskets and seals appear to be in good working
