1981 Herreshoff Doughdish 12 1/2 - Clover
Generations of discriminating yachting families on the New England coastline have owned these boats. Many have changed hands by inheritance. A Doughdish is ideal for beginners, for Class racing, or casual day sailing by all ages.
She is exceptionally seaworthy and capable in all kinds of weather, as comfortable to sail as a small boat can be, is surprisingly fast, and has abundant space for a crew of 4 persons. She is lovely to single-hand, and can be managed by children or great-grandmothers, yet still enjoyed by seasoned yachtsmen and women. In addition, she is distinctively charming with beautiful lines. She turns readily and reliably, has a self-tending jib, and accommodates her crew inside the cockpit on ample seats with unobstructed legroom. You can stand anywhere on the boat without fear of instability. It takes no time to set sail or put her to bed. The fiberglass hull is relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain and is very strong.
Clover comes with a full set of sails, including a brand-new unused spinnaker for class racing. She also comes included with a custom Triad trailer, Oars, Oar locks, Canvas cockpit cover, and Canvas jib cover.
