LITTLE GULL II



42′ Hand/Herreshoff power cruiser
WB No. 183
STILL AVAILABLE

No prospective buyer as yet has satisfied owner Tucker Reynolds’s criteria: someone who he feels will do the boat justice. Luckily, Little Gull is inside Tucker’s shed—on ice, as it were—so there’s no rush. We believe someone, someday will come along, take the boat under his or her wing, and give her the restoration she needs. Having a boat designed by William Hand and built by Herreshoff makes her unique. What a pedigree! She’s practical as well, having good accommodations, a handsome appearance, and the performance you’d expect from her designer and builder.

I am interested in this boat. I'm a physician on the threshold of retirement and looking for a project. How can I learn more about the boat?

I would be very interested in talking to Mr. Reynolds about this vessel. I have looked at 3, surveyed 2 William Hand motor sailersover the years and both in the end were too expensive to refasten, replank and rewire. I keep hoping I will find one that I can afford to restore. My budget for restoration is considerable. Hoping to hear from someone on this subject.
