About this Custom Herreshoff 6 Meter

Wooden Ships Comments on this Herreshoff 6 Meter Designed by Starling Burgess to the Six Metre rule and built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in 1921. She was part of the first ever team of American 6m yachts to be campaigned in England and she carried sail number US4. After the racing she remained in the UK and her well documented history took her cruising around Scotland, Ireland, over to Norway with various owners who have written books and memoirs about their time with the boat. The present owner, a professional shipwright, carried out a major refit around 2015 which included a lot of structural work to the hull and re-fastening, plus fitting a new gaff sloop rig in place of her cutting edge bermudan rig from when she was launched. With the new set up she has raced very successfully and proved to be equally fast and fun to sail. Her original bermudan rig is still with the boat. Recent paint and varnish work done in June 2019 so she is looking particularly smart. She has proved to be a very competitive boat, winning Suffolk Yacht Harbour Classic regatta and has consistently been at the head of the fleet in other regattas and local races. She has the potential to do extremely well in classic events both here and in the Mediterranean and could be a cost effective yacht in which to enjoy these regattas. Length Overall 27'4" Length on Deck 27'4" Beam 7' Draft 5'6" Thames Tonnage 5TM   Construction Carvel planked in 3/4" Honduras mahogany all bronze screw fastened to steam bent oak timbers at 6" centres. 90% of the hull was re-fastened in 2015, there is no movement even when hard pressed.
