About this Herreshoff Islander Class Dayboat


Misty II

is one of 3 L. Francis Herreshoff designed "Quiet Tune" daysailers, she was built by Paul Luke in Maine.  She is a true classic, and well-known as one of the best looking boats in Marion harbor. Not to mention, fun to sail, fast and slippery, and capable of handling the well-known Buzzards Bay chop.

Misty II

has been very well-cared for by Burr Brother's in Marion, MA for the majority of her life, always with indoor winter storage, annual maintenance and upgrades.

Herreshoff designed the original Quiet Tune for an owner who wanted a daysailer with a versatile sail plan and was not interested in cruising, just an occasional overnight.

Misty II

has a much more comfortable cockpit than the original design that is slightly taller with built in seats: she is easy to single hand and big enough for a sunset sail with 2 couples. 

Misty II

is in excellent condition, commissioned, in the water on her mooring and ready to sail immediately.
