Presenting PAPOOSE, a special centennial member of the Herreshoff S-Class available for the 2019 celebration.

The Herreshoff S-Class is highly regarded as one of the most beautiful one-designs ever.  It's an instantly recognizable classic with it’s spoon bow, Herreshoff cabin trunk, and sharply curved mast carrying a large marconi mainsail and 5/8ths self-tending jib.  The S-Class is incredibly fun to sail in all conditions.  In light air the tall rig will power an S-Class right by any modern boat and in heavy air the high ballast ratio keeps the boat stable. The deep cockpit remains comfortable while the bendy mast automatically depowers the main by spilling air.   Such is the reason that after a century, more than half of the original 96 S-Class boats are still sailing and racing.

The Herreshoff S-Class in brief:

-First marconi sail one-design.

-Low freeboard, deep cockpit, 50% ballast ratio, and large mainsail combination create a uniquely exciting sailing experience.

-One of the most popular Herreshoff one-designs with 94 built.

-Of the 94 built between 1919 and 1940, over half the original boats are still sailing and racing.

-The cockpit will easily fit 6 adults, and they are generally raced with 3-4 crew.

Papoose’s full and detailed provenance is available:

Papoose was one the first contracted Herreshoff S-Class in late 1919 and was given the 3rd hull number (#831) when launched in March of 1920.  Papoose’s earliest years were spent racing in Marblehead with owners John Silsbee Lawrence and Livingston Davis.  In 1924 Papoose joined the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club fleet.    Nearly 40 years later in 1963 Papoose joined the Narragansett Bay fleet which has been homeport for over 55 years. 

Papoose’s restoration:

In 2011/12 Papoose underwent an extensive, detailed, and documented keel-up restoration in Bristol, Rhode Island.  Papoose has been maintained in as-new condition since.  Ensuring Papoose is ready to take on another 100yrs of sailing and racing.
