Launch

Description/Condition

Part of an extraordinary collection of classics, this launch is believed to be from the Herreshoff 284 series and the “Bubble’s” hull form. Although found in extremely deteriorated condition and missing much of her hardware, she sports a unique version of the classic Herreshoff molded sheer strake as depicted in early Herreshoff plans. Her lines are spectacular, including transom, classic Herreshoff flared bow, and her pretty scantlings throughout. The hull is double planked mahogany over cedar; the transom is double planked teak over cedar; and the framework is white oak. The launch has the beautiful and classic double open cockpit arrangement with amidships steering station. She will be powered with a 40 horsepower Yanmar 3JH4E engine. This is a very special opportunity to be part of a rare historic restoration. She is of the magnificent status and elegant form often associated with such vessels as the Corsair launch owned and operated in the Newport area. 

Having researched the 276 and 284 series of Herreshoff launches, the decision was made to use the 330 hull form (a derivative of 276) as it best conformed to the wreck on hand.  Replete with numerous signature Herreshoff construction details but also having elements not found in the drawings it cannot be said the launch was definitely of that company.  However the boat that emerges in June will mimic the construction of the model on hand, Haerreshoff Launches, and celebrate its Bristol derivation in its detailing.
