FISH for sale?
« on: December 17, 2016, 04:57:19 AM »
I'm new to the forum.  I am interested in possibly acquiring a Herreshoff Fish Class sloop.  Preference for gaff-rigged and (to a lesser degree of importance) varnished sheer-strakes.

Please reply to this post if anyone is aware of such a vessel currently on the market.

Thank you

Alec at Artisan Boatworks in Rockport, ME finished restoration of a Fish earlier this year.  Check their FB page or website.

Start at Artisan, Herreshoff Yacht Sales sold one two years ago to a couple in Brooklin, ME, second place to inquire.  Be prepared to wait for one to become available. 

Having watched the Pisces Class boats race and day cruise this summer from atop the RC Boat, the modified marconi rig of the newer Pisces is a sweet little adaptation.  A Pisces may be a reasonable place holder until one becomes available.
