About this Sailboat:

Boat sails and handles great. Beautiful lines, designed by Halsey Herreshoff.

LOA – 26′ 0″
LOD – 26′ 0″
LWL – 21′ 10″
Draft – 3′ 10″
Beam – 8′ 0″
Sails – Main, 100% Jib, Genny, Storm Jib.
Hull #161. In fair condition. Still being sailed regularly.

Dinette to port converts into double berth. Galley to starboard. 2 quarter berths under the cockpit used as storage. Head and hanging locker forward of dinette anad galley. V berth sleeps 2.

Needs some TLC. Previously had mast compression issues that have been temporarily repaired. By original design the mast compression post is slightly off center from the mast. And the cabin sole under the compression post was not supported. Consequently, there was a minor compression issue. I have added support under the compression post and added a support under the other half of the mast. There is a slight concave area to starboard of the mast on the cabintop. It has been drilled and epoxied but would benefit by being cut out and repaired. There was also some water damage to the compression post that has been repaired.

Paint on the hull and decks is old and the boat would look SO much better if redone.

Will sell either with or without 2004 Honda 8hp 4 stroke outboard. $4000 with ob, $3000 without ob. Located on Sassafrass River in MD. Mooring available.
