24' Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 15
Originally built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company between 1899-1928. This boats are thrilling to sail, they are fast, stiff and responsive, the hull is slippery, and even at speed such little turbulance is created that the boat leaves virtually no wake. Designed over 100 years ago these 15 footers (waterline length) can give a modern go fast machine a run for its money.
This boat was completely restored by Warren Barker and the crew at I.Y.R.S. in 2004
