Vintage c.a. 1926 Herreshoff (Ketch) Schooner Sailing Yacht. ( Rare) Fully Restored. All offers will be considered).
This yacht measures 36" L X 8"W X 54"H.
We acquired this historic yacht from a collector living in Toronto, Canada. His father acquired the boat from another collector while traveling Europe back in the 1960's.
When we received this yacht we restored the rigging and deck along with adding brass fixtures and appointments to restore originality.
This is a very rare yacht mainly because of it condition, size and history. The hull and keel are painted red and white and the keel is weighted. The hull is resin.
As with all of our yachts we ship partially disassembled for safe shipping. Just connect the mast and some rigging and your ready to enjoy!
We will also include instructions for assembly and pictures for easy assemble.
