About this Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 14 Daysailer

Rare opportunity to acquire one of the few Buzzards Bay 14's built with a raised cuddy, similar to the larger Herreshoff Fish Class - and the only fiberglass pre-owned Buzzards Bay 14 currently on the market ! Quality construction by MacDougalls and R & M Marine on Cape Cod

Excellent sailing characteristics. Ideal fun for young or experienced boaters alike. Seasoned sailors are certain to enjoy the performance of a L. F. Herreshoff designed Buzzard's Bay 14.

Whisper is nicely appointed with spruce spars (new in 2014) providing a rich, traditional look. Boat has been maintained, sailed and meticulously cared for by her owner in York Harbor, Maine.

Varnished teak woodwork, louvered cabin doors, hinged cockpit seat storage, bench seat cushions, varnished mast and boom (both new in 2014), varnished jib club, deck stepped mast with hinged mast step, all bronze and stainless hardware (blocks from J. Reineck & Sons),

Hood main sail, jib and spinnaker, Canvas covers: (3) different cockpit covers, main and jib sail covers, detachable bimini dodger. Detachable bronze outboard bracket (no outboard), whisker pole, bilge pump, dock lines and fenders.

Seller reports:

Llewellyn Howland (founder of Concordia Company in 1926), commissioned L. Francis Herreshoff in 1945 to design a slightly larger version of the Herreshoff 12½ for daysailing on in Buzzards Bay. This design was the result with a waterline length of 14 feet and LOA of 17’3”. In comparison to the Herreshoff 12 ½ this design has a similar draft and beam, but is about 2’ longer which allows for a larger deeper cockpit and gives the hull a longer, sleeker look. The Buzzards Bay 14 can comfortably seat 6, compare with 4 in the 12 ½. There is also more sail area for increased speed and power, which is offset by a heavier, but not deeper keel. Like the 12 ½, the Buzzard Bay 14 will easily handle any stiff breeze, point nicely and will be relatively dry under a wide range of conditions. Does not require a strong or athletic crew, and would be easy to sail singlehanded at all times. This is the perfect boat for both the new sailor just learning the ways of the sea, and the more experienced sailor.
