The Herreshoff 12 1/2 was designed as a safe, forgiving daysailer; especially for the young and those new to sailing.
12 1/2 sailors will confirm that this is a very forgiving bay boat that works well in a chop. One that is most comfortable with the helmsman snug on the leeward side rather than hanging out to weather to balance the boat.
White Throat is a classic marconi rigged Herreshoff 12 1/2 built in 1936 with the factory number of 1289. The present owners commissioned a major rebuilt in 1992 that was completed in 1994.
