Artisan Boatworks Inc.
Custom built by Artisan Boatworks to the highest yacht standard of either traditional wood or wood/epoxy composite construction.
The Fish Class is and enlarged version of the ubiquitous Herreshoff 12 ½, with the same virtues of stability, rough water ability, good looks, and excellent handling characteristics. While she is only 4' longer than the 12 ½, she has twice the displacement and thus, in real terms, is twice as big.
The cuddy cabin allows for storage space and some privacy for use of a head or bucket, and she is generally a fine, handy, compact boat that will keep the sailing fun even when conditions are less than optimum. She will sail fast at moderate angles of heel, and like her smaller cousins features a large, deep cockpit that will be reassuring for folks of all ages and will be particularly good for couples with small children.
