The first H 12 1/2 footer boats were built in 1914 by Herreshoff Mfg. Co, of Bristol, RI, from the original design of Nathanael G. Herreshoff. The unique popularity and longevity of this design has continued for 101 years. She is still considered to be one of the finest, if not the finest, small sailing yacht designs ever created.
'ADELLA"is a classic 12 1/2 built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. Of Bristol, RI in 1924. She was rebuilt in 2012 on Martha's Vinyard, which included all new frames,new keelson, new keel bolts, new floor timbers, new deck canvas fore and aft, new coamings and trim, with multiple coats of varnish, fairing of the hull and four coats of paint on the topsides, new transom, and strip and re-coating the bottom. New sail tracks were installed on gaff and boom, new hoops on main, and new mainsail and jib. And finally a new cockpit cover and jib sail cover.
