THISTLE was built in 1923 as one of an order of ten Watch Hill 15's to be delivered to the Watch Hill Yacht Club (which still has an active fleet).  Delivered as hull number 883 of the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company.  She was assigned Sail #4, and was a winning racer in the fleet over many years with very knowledgeable and successful owners.  Her current owner (steward) of 20 years, is offering her for sale.

Importantly, the Watch Hill 15 class has a Marconi rig, differentiating her from the Buzzards Bay 15 and the Newport 15. 

She was completely rebuilt by George Nicholas (a highly regarded shipwright and sailor) in 2000 - 2001 - replanked and refastened.  All deadwood was replaced and several frames were replaced. Every owner has properly cared for the boat and she is currently stored inside a dirt floor shed on her Triad trailer awaiting her next owner.  

Inventory includes:

  • Full spars, standing and running rigging
  • All original deck hardware
  • Full suit of sails (new 2008)
  • Triad Trailer
  • Miscellaneous gear and historical memorabilia

Historic, gorgeous, and a truly proper yacht ready to sail and bring pride and joy to her next owner. Available to be seen at your convenience.  Inquiries are invited.
