A replica likely better built (from a 1903 design) than even by the vaunted Captain Nat himself by the true craftsmen at Artisan Boatworks in Rockport, ME - this Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 18 (29 LOA) fits quite neatly between the classic Watch Hill 15 and the Buzzards Bay 20. Remarkably slippery for a design nearly 120 years old, our version won her class at the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta in her first outing. She is "yar".
