One of the original Herreshoff Fishers Island 31's built in 1930 by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, WIZARD (HMCo # 1156)  Underwent a no-holds-barred 42 month restoration by Brion Rieff in Brooklin, Maine from January 2014 to August 2017.  

With a stunning level of craftsmanship, Rieff returned her to her original graceful state.  Rieff took off the keel and built new steam-bent frames, new floor timbers and transom, an entirely new white oak backbone, and new Sitka spruce spars.  The running backstays were retained and a permanent backstay added.  Jacob Vargish developed a sail plan whose proportions fit her beautiful hull, and both sails have more leading edge than the original to improve performance to windward.  After relaunch, she went on to win the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta in 2019. 

31' on the waterline, she is 44 feet on deck.  The versatile full keel sloop design is an outgrowth of Nathanael Herreshoff's ALERION daysailor.  Her original paperwork says, "a model which is exceptionally sturdy, seaworthy and dry in rough going without sacrificing the much-desired element of speed," and that holds true today. 

Below decks she has a restful main cabin with typical Herreshoff varnished mahogany trim and original 1930's ambiance.  The forward galley now has a propane stove and oven and double sink, and the head is opposite to port. 

WIZARD is in outstanding structural and aesthetic condition with modern systems and amenities throughout.  She is ready for the next chapter to be written by you.
