Native38' Herreshoff 1970

$ 29,900

This Herreshoff classic design clipper ketch was the last vessel that L. Francis Herreshoff personally supervised the construction of. "Native" is a famous Ticonderoga ketch design. This boat was sailed mostly in New England and often went South to the Bahamas. Brought to Chesapeake Bay in 1998, she is in Deltaville VA.

NATIVE has been owned by the same person for 20+ years, a knowledgeable “wooded boat guy”. He is aging and thus selling. She is currently on the hard in Deltaville Virginia. The owner had a general condition assessment prepared by a marine surveyor in 2/2023. The hull planks have not been re-fastened. She was in the water and usually stays in the water and has been on the hard for several months for maintenance and ease of potential buyer examination. This is not a cast off the lines and sail away vessel though she has been maintained. Native would need a deep dive by a knowledgeable person to verify her seaworthiness.

Do not miss out on the classic!
