COMMENTS: L. Francis Herreshoff noted that the Buzzard’s Bay 25 was his father’s favorite design.. The Buzzards Bay 25 was designed in 1914 . It had a hollow bow, higher freeboard, and shorter overhangs than many of its predecessors. The hollow bow helps keep the boat dry, and the shorter overhangs provide improved durability. The BB25 is quite fast, and they have always done well in sailing regattas. ‘Wizard’ is a fine reproduction built using coldmolded wood/epoxy construction by boatbuilder Larry Gillen. She has been well cared for and professionally maintained. Recent upgrades include interior /exterior repaint decks and bottom (2015) topsides and boot repainted 2012.
