Posh

Posh (formerly Pride) is one of a number of cold-molded Buzzards Bay 25’s built by the Brooklin Boatyard during the late 90’s to Nat Herreshoff’s beautiful and innovative 1914 design.  Much like their plank on frame counterparts, these modern Buzzards Bay 25’s have all the qualities of an exceptional day-sailer.  They’re beautiful to look at and have the speed and sailing characteristics to match.   They differ in so far as they offer a maintenance regimen and conveniences a lot of potential boat owners will be more comfortable with.

Posh was built in 1996, received a significant refit at Brooklin Boatyard in 2016 and has been exceptionally well-maintained since.  Her Torquedo electric pod-propulsion is quiet, handy, unobtrusive to the interior and doesn’t require trips to the dock for fuel.  Posh has a beautiful raw teak cockpit, a clean, painted hull interior and simple cuddy for sail storage and ducking out of the weather.  On deck her hardware is a practical mix of modern and period correct and her sails, standing and running rigging all recently replaced.  Posh will be getting new topsides paint, bottom paint and varnish for 2020.  She is competitively priced and ready for showings in Belmont, ME.

The Buzzard’s Bay 25 Design:

The Buzzard’s Bay 25 is a one-design class drawn by Nat Herreshoff 1914 for the Beverly Yacht Club to suit the prevailing conditions in their new location in Marion on Buzzard’s Bay.  The new design would have to be shoal draft, able to sail in both light airs and in the strong sea breeze and wind-over-tide chop frequently found there.  They were hybrid centerboard/ballast keel sloops sporting more beam, shorter overhangs and higher aspect rigs than his earlier designs.  The resulting hull is stunning and said to be one of the designer’s favorites from his extensive body of work.  Its beauty, simplicity and versatility make it a perfect candidate for a contemporary build of a classic design.
