About the H-20:
The origins of the Herreshoff 20 lie in the famous 12 1/2. After building 364 of these wonderful boats at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, Capt Nat carved a new model. In his notes about the H-20, he wrote ”Pleasure sailing keel boat to replace the Buzzard’s Bay Boy’s boat.” But it was never built in his lifetime and sat unnoticed for nearly 80 years. Until now. Dan Shea at Bristol Boat Company, in cooperation with Herreshoff Designs, has spent the last year bringing this classic design to life using the original NGH drawings.
Don't miss the excitement!
You're invited for a sneak preview before the Herreshoff Regatta to see the newest classic Herreshoff design. Looking forward to seeing you there!
