Our build quality is demonstrated most typically in the Herreshoff Buzzard Bay 15 ‘Spirit of Marion’. This boat was originally designed back in 1895 by Nathaniel Herreshoff who produced a succession of undefeated America’s Cup defenders between 1893-1920.
‘Spirit of Marion’ was runner-up in the 2015 Classic Boat Awards Traditional New Build category. She’s not only true to design, but to hardware and sails too – the detailing is superbly vintage and authentic. It’s a mark of Herreshoff’s genius that all who build his boats find the designs hard to improve upon, even with modern know-how.
