SHEILA was designed by W. Starling Burgess and built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, #861 in 1922 to represent the USA in the British American Cup Series.

She is built from Honduras mahogany and white oak, and all bronze fastenings throughtout.  She is in almost original condition and racing with great success. She is the only 6 metre in existence to have been built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, a very rare and unique boat indeed.

In 2013 she had a major refit and overhaul of her rig converting her from Marconi to gaff rig.  So everything above the deck is brand new, all spars are professonally made using high grade sitka spruce, all blocks are wooden and new, much care was taken to keep the appearance of such a classic  

She is a fast and exciting boat, and a true piece of maritime history.
