38' Custom Block Island Boat '60 "Scrimshaw"

AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE THIS UNIQUE HISTORIC VESSEL ON A LEASE WITH AN OPTION TO BUY FROM AN ACCREDITED SAILING PROGRAM!!

SCRIMSHAW was born from the noble legacy of the rugged, sea-kindly Block Island Boat of the 1840’s. The Block Island Boat’s seaworthiness, great handling qualities and the simplicity of the unstayed rig make her a natural for short-handed sailing. It has been said of this wide beamed double-ender that “her motion in a steep short sea is like a rocking chair. She never smashes into a head sea, but rides like a duck, and when on the wind she is always inching to windward, no matter how hard it blows.”

Become a part of nautical history by investing in this beautiful vessel, built in 1947, launched in 1960. Prior to donating her to the program in 2020, she was purchased by the previous owner (a professional mariner) in 1976 and has been constantly upgraded and impeccably maintained with the most recent bottom paint being applied in July 2019.
