Restoring a 16′ day sailer
Keeping up to scratch
This Haven 12 1/2 was built by us in 2010 and sold before completion. She returned to the yard for a complete repaint at the owners request in 2016. Once completed in new colours, she has been laid up and is now awaiting a new owner.
This version is half way between the Haven 12 1/2 design by Joel White and the original Herreshoff 12 1/2 design with a cross thwart which adds considerable strength and makes her an ideal craft for teaching traditional sailing. She is a very responsive and forgiving boat.
