On every sailors “someday list” – the Herreshoff Watch Hill 15. This one is especially sweet – built by the late Dave Corcoran of Bull House Boatworks in Arundel, Maine and professionally maintained by Artisan Boatworks – she recently underwent a total cosmetic restoration and remains in perfect condition. RAINBOW was Dave Corcoran’s personal boat, who was known to sail her at full speed and tack within inches of the dock, close enough to hand out business cards to the stunned onlookers.
She is traditional plank on frame construction over a laminated mahogany backbone and with a canvas covered plywood deck. The marconi mast is varnished sitka spruce, and all deck varnish is teak.
These boats are thrilling sailors. They are fast, stiff, and responsive. The hull is slippery, and even at speed such little turbulence is created that the boat leaves virtually no wake. The original Buzzards Bay 15's were designed by Nathanael Herreshoff in 1898, and with their gaff-rigs known as the E-Class at the Beverly Yacht Club. In 1922 Sidney Herreshoff designed a marconi-rigged version of the same hull known as the Watch Hill 15.
RAINBOW is in perfect condition. She recently underwent a total cosmetic refit and was upgraded with a new depth sounder and wireless wind instruments. She is on a trailer and ready to launch.
