37′ L. F. Herreshoff double-ended ketch — 1984-1987 — $38,500 (New Price)
Designed by L. Francis Herreshoff (Design No. 65) in 1935, but not built until 1984-1987 by Brad Story in Essex, MA. (Ticonderoga, ex-Tioga II, was his Design No. 66.) She sails like a dream, especially on a reach. Her original owner planned to sail her to the South Pacific from Massachusetts, but illness forced him to shorten his cruise to the Caribbean instead. See the feature article in WoodenBoat No. 157.
