KOI (ex-Aunt Eppie) is a 1925 Herreshoff Manufacturing Company Fish Class.  Her HMCo. hull number is #941.  She still displays her original builders plaque.    

KOI is one of only 12 out of the original 41 Fish Boats to have fully known provenance.  KOI was originally part of the nine boat Warwick Fleet, which all had names of cartoon characters. 

The Fish boat was designed at the request of the Seawanhaka selection committee "to be a safe and seaworthy boat in varying weather conditions, ideal for teaching children to sail, for pleasure sailing and Saturday racing." The design developed by Nat Herreshoff was an enlarged version of the 1914 Herreshoff 12 footers with a small cuddy cabin forward of a very large cockpit. The longitudinal scaling ratio was thirteen to ten and the transverse was twelve to ten. An additional 3 1/2 inches was added to the bow after scaling accounting for the proportionately longer overhang.

The Fish Class design finds the sweet spot for family day-sailing with ease, comfort, and style.

KOI is in newly-restored condition.  The exhaustive restoration was completed by the Intenational Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI.  KOI comes with two sailing rigs.  The original marconi rig, and a new gaff-rig (pictured) built during restoration.   The new gaff rig is outfitted with classic Nat Wilson sails.  Either could be fitted at the choice of the new owner.
