1937 Herreshoff 12 1/2 - Beautifully Restored - HULL #1397


A perfectly restored Herreshoff 12 1/2 (ex DOVEKIE) originally built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company is now offered for sale by Block & Becket Shipwrights in Bristol, RI. This original 12 1/2 (hull #1397 complete with builder's plate) has been restored with the utmost effort and detail to insure her structural integrity and beauty, while maintaining her originality. Among a long list of other work, she received 15 new frames, three new floor timbers, new canvased cedar decks and bulkheads, along with new mahogany coamings. She is gaff-rigged with cedar planking on white oak frames, and includes a new Triad trailer. She has much of the original hardware with various replacement pieces through J.M. Renick & Sons. On the rigging, turnbuckles have been replaced and the shrouds have been parcelled and served. New sails will be included in the final sale. She has complete coats of varnish on her brightwork and spars, and both the interior and exterior have been painted. She is ready for launch. She is offered with complete confidence and ready to enjoy this summer. Please contact us for details and more photos of DOVEKIE.
