1951 Herreshoff 47 Antique in Groveland, Massachusetts

Stock #106956

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

!!!Update: Motivated seller needs this boat gone and will consider any reasonable offer!!!!

This beauty was designed and owned by L. Francis Herreshoff!! She was built by the Luders Yard and reportedly was used for a time as a pace boat for the Harvard University crew team.

The sellers purchased the boat in 1978 and totally rebuilt her over the years, launching her in 1992 with a layout that is designed for coastal cruising and comfort on the inland waterways. The interior layout is absolutely stunning with many different kinds of varnished and highly polished woods as well as a working woodstove.

This boat would really fit PERFECTLY in the wooden boat show on Lake Winnipesaukee and could also be used as a floating hotel suite.

Her rebuild was done using the cold molded epoxy method with 3 layers of strip planked Philippine mahogany and bronze fasteners. With a mahogany hull that is bronze fastened and encapsulated in epoxy, she is completely watertight when launched and does not need the maintenance or soaking typically needed by wooden boats.

She has a low hours 75 HP Westerbeke 4 cyl diesel engine that moves her with ease,

This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of boating history.

Trailer not included.
Information On Condition

According to the seller, the owners are elderly and can no longer maintain her.

She has been stored under cover for 15 years and sits on her own homemade trailer, which is only suitable for hauling her a mile or so to the water.

She's will need a complete recommissioning.

Note that the sellers desire an "as is, where is" sale which is reflected in the asking price.

The listing broker has visited this vessel and taken most of the pictures. Feel free to contact him for more information.
