CAPT. NAT HERRESHOFF'S
INDOMINATBLE “S“ BOAT!
ONE ONLY REMAINING

GIANT BLUENOSE DIMENSIONS: 47" LOA x 40 1/2" H x 7 1/4" W WEIGHT 8 PRICE $ 449.00 PLUS $17.00 SHIPPING AND HANDLING WEIGHT 8 LBS

Presented is the "S"-Class Boat, a displacement boat that is quick in light air, stiff in a breeze, and remarkably agile in response to her helm. She is powered by a five-eighths rig consisting of a self-tending jib, a main, and a spinnaker. The cockpit provides unusually ample working space for a one-design racer; it is moderately deep, comfortable, and relatively dry. The cabin provides shelter from foul weather, storage and space for a portable head if desired. Most were produced between 1919 and 1941 by the world famous Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in Bristol, Rhode Island; designed and supervised by "Captain Nat" Herreshoff - the Wizard of Bristol.

This model was made from scratch and took hundreds of hours to build!!! It is painstakingly built by hand one plank at a time. As you can see from the pictures above, this model took tremendous skill, is highly detailed, and finished in eight coats of glistening hand rubbed enamel.

Graceful hull and keel

Our Herreshoff "S" boat is built to the same high standards of all of our models. She is constructed from scratch by skilled craftsmen, plank on frame just like the original and has been approved by the Herreshoff museum. The model is faithful to the original in all details with a scale of 1" equals 1". At each step along the way, all operations are painstakingly done by hand including a finely finished hull in paint, varnish trim and painted canvas deck covering. It's high detailing and intricate construction has set a new standard for a quality reproduction at a very reasonable price. She will make a treasured addition to any collection or décor, and likely increase in value over time as like all our models, the "S" boat is truly a work-of-art.


95 of these boats were built from 1919 until 1941, and 75 remain in service. There is a cult following in regard to this design and they are actively sailed in competition today as in years past. The most active fleet is on Long Island Sound where 40 boats are still racing. There are a boats in Buzzards Bay, MA. and the rest are scattered among Mystic, Conn., in Chesapeake Bay, California, and Hawaii.
