Buzzards Bay 14

LOA 17’3”  LWL 14’  Beam 5’10”  Draft 2’6”

The Buzzards Bay 14 is L. Francis Herreshoff’s  answer to Llewelyn Howland’s request for a slightly larger version of Nathaniel Herreshoff’s tried and true 12 ½. Mr. Howland, a member of the founding family of the Concordia Company, was a discerning customer and the resulting boat was a svelte little yacht of robust construction set atop L. Francis’ signature rabbeted ballast keel.

With a Marconi sail plan of approximately the same square footage as the 12 ½, the design provides ease of handling with a bit more run to drive through the inevitable chop of a Buzzards Bay afternoon.  

A completely restored 1982 example of LFH’s design number 86 is available for purchase from IYRS.  If you like the father’s work, check out what the artistic son could do.

Price: $30,000  
There is no sales tax on boats purchased and kept for use in the state of Rhode Island.
