Pilot 4 Sale/Ebay
« on: March 09, 2017, 02:52:35 PM »
I saw this Pilot posted on Ebay & just wanted to pass along the listing ........

1973 - Herreshoff Harbor Pilot Launch - A well built and well-found motor vessel ideal for daily endeavors and weekend pleasures. Constructed by skilled craftsmen, modern hand laid fiberglass materials, a real beauty!

Built at the renowned Nowak & Williams yard in Bristol, Rhode Island, this classic Herreshoff is offered for sale.

It has a lifting Boom & Mast for Lobster or Crab pots hauling.

Updated Inboard diesel- Yanmar - 4 cylinder - low hours and runs great!

The Pilot is one of the rarest boats built on the Herreshoff Cat Hull.

This is the ultimate family weekend cruiser! You will certainly be getting thumbs up and waves while you are in the boat. It was used every summer in Nantucket for over 10 years to take a family out and around the island. They really enjoyed the boat and are hoping to find someone to enjoy the boat as much as they did.

Recent improvements listed below :
Cooling Hoses (2016)

New red gel coat on hull (Approximately 2009)

Rebuilt Injection Pump (2016)

New Bilge Pump (2016)

The engine has been gone through and anything that needed repair was replaced. This is a really nice boat!

Not designed by LF Herreshoff, but that's par for the course with eBay listings.
