The original Buzzards Bay 15's were designed by Nathanael Herreshoff in 1898, and known as the E-Class. In 1906 Herreshoff designed a full-keel version of the Buzzards Bay 15 incorporating the following modifications:
-Ballast keel lowered from 2' 6" down to 3' 1" and weight increased 500 lbs.
-Sheer raised 2", Cockpit lengthened 8" and widened 6"
-Mast diameter increased so as to eliminate running backstays and jib club added for self-tacking.
These modifications resulted in a classic daysailer that maintains the stunning looks of the original Buzzards Bay 15, but is easier to sail, more comfortable, and can stand up to more wind.
WHISPER is a new full-keel Buzzards Bay 15 built by Artisan Boatworks in 2010. Planking is carvel Cedar, edge-glued and fastened over steam bent frames and a laminated mahogany backbone.
She has been professionally maintained always and is in "as new" condition. Included are a 2010 Triad Trailer, Shaw & Tenny boat hook and canoe paddle, docklines, and fenders, anchor with rode, and required safety equipment.
WHISPER is in Mystic, CT and ready for immediate delivery.
