Welcome to Proper Yachts !

Proper Yachts, Ltd. image Proper Yachts, Ltd. is dedicated to serving the greater sailing community with an emphasis on yachts with classic good looks --from traditionally inspired sailboats to modern daysailers, from family coastal cruisers to bluewater voyagers, from Downeast style "Sailor's Power Boats" to contemporary gentleman's motor yachts and high performance sport boats.

First of all, Proper Yachts constructs and markets the Herreshoff Alerion 26 daysailer that combines the beauty of classic hull form with the best of modern materials to create a boat with timeless good looks and lively performance under sail. The Herreshoff Alerion 26 daysailer/overnighter, is a direct descendant of Captain Nat Herreshoff's original 1912 classic design, executed with the best of contemporary materials and fiberglass technology by our New England craftsmen. The Alerion combines a traditionally beautiful hull shape with the reward of a boat that is stable, comfortable, and fun to sail.

Secondly, Proper Yachts maintains an active Yacht Brokerage concentrating on traditional designs in sail and power. A particular emphasis is placed on the daysailer category which is emerging in popularity for today's busy sailing families. We cover the full panoply of types: traditional, performance, production fiberglass, and modern classics. In addition, Proper Yachts Brokerage maintains a list of quality pre-owned yachts for sale. Our knowledgeable, experienced team of real sailors works closely with every client seeking used yachts, assisting in selecting the proper boat to match one's yachting desires, personal needs and experience level.

Specifically, in addition to the Alerion 26 daysailer we offer the Harbor 20 daysailer and the new Harbor 25 family weekender which blends classic lines with latest building and material technologies. Graceful shear, modern underbody and rig make for fast, easy handling. Large, spacious cockpit with no-hike stability. Self-tacking club boom, roller furling jib, full-battened main w/lazy jacks. Lively, responsive, stable, comfortable sailboats. The Harbor 20 comes with an electric motor for quiet, clean powering. The Harbor 25 cruising sloop has an inboard motor, a surprisingly generous cabin with bunks and head and a large comfortable cockpit.

An innovative power boat rounds out our offerings: Newport Runabout Express 34 a classic styled gentleman's motoryacht in a modern idiom. Finally, Proper Yachts provides an experienced Yacht Management staff with extensive sailing time and broad based knowledge of construction, systems and rigging. We have years of serving the sailing community as consultants and project managers for owners undertaking bluewater passages, distance race preparation, routine ship's husbandry, major refits or new construction. Some of our most successful project vessels include Nautor's Swan, Bristol, Hinckley, Tartan, Frans Maas, Dick Carter and Camper Nicholson. We can tailor our services to give you as much or as little support as you may need, exactly fitting our skills to your requirements.

The Herreshoff Alerion 26 is a classic daysailer/overnighter sloop derived from Captain Nat Herreshoff's original 1912 design. The HA 26 combines superb traditional design with the best contemporary materials. The classically beautiful full keeled hull shape is produced in strong, light, easily maintained fiberglass with generous use of hand crafted teak coamings, seats, toerails and deckhouse overlays. New England craftsmen followed the Herreshoff tradition of building with meticulous care and attention to detail to produce as fine and complete a small yacht as can be found today.
