ORPHAN was built by the late Dave CORCORAN of Bull House Boatworks in Arundel, ME.  She was his personal boat and many have watched in wonder as at various New England boat shows Dave would famously tack at full-speed within inches of the dock, handing out business cards and offering to take prospects for a sail! 

ORPHAN has been professionally maintained by Artisan Boatworks and remains in perfect condition.  She is traditional plank on frame construction over a laminated mahogany backbone and with a canvas covered plywood deck.  The marconi mast is varnished sitka spruce, and all deck varnish is teak.  

These boats are thrilling sailors. They are fast, stiff, and responsive. The hull is slippery, and even at speed such little turbulence is created that the boat leaves virtually no wake.  The original Buzzards Bay 15's were designed by Nathanael Herreshoff in 1898, and with their gaff-rigs known as the E-Class at the Beverly Yacht Club.  In 1922 Sidney Herreshoff designed a marconi-rigged version of the same hull known as the Watch Hill 15. 

ORPHAN has had all her seasonal maintenance performed for this year, is on a trailer, and ready to launch.  She also features a Mastervolt electric "pod" drive for auxiliary propulsion.
