Built in 1925 at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in Bristol, RI, Vela is hull number 910.
The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company between 1919 and 1936 built altogether 96 S-Boats and the “S-Class” is still very active after almost 100 years. Between 45 and 50 S-Boats are still in commission.
These yachts are coveted by their owners and admired universally by boaters—whether cruisers or racers; young and old. These fast and handsome little yachts have experienced an extraordinary renaissance over the past decade. Carvel planked on steam bent oak frames with a lovely bright sheer strake.
