MASHNEE is a beautifully restored Buzzards Bay 30, and is a true classic from the board of NG Herreshoff. She was completely rebuilt by Darling Boatworks in Charlotte, Vermont. The project was extensively researched and documented, and an excellent Vimeo video of the restoration may be viewed by clicking on the link provided under the "External Links" section at the end of this listing. New spars were built in Maine, and new custom hardware was provided as needed... a true labor of love. MASHNEE is a rare opportunity to own a true Herreshoff classic, in outstanding condition, and we feel she can be highly recommended.
