2001 Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 25 K/CB Sloop

Marion, Massachusetts

$115,000

The Buzzards Bay 25 is widely considered to be one of the finest yacht designs of all time. Dramatically beautiful, extremely fast, yet easy to sail, with a large uniquely comfortable cockpit. LILITH is the picture of grace and elegance under sail. She was built by Damian McLaughlin, Jr. in N. Falmouth, MA, in the low maintenance "West System" and finished with varnished mahogany, befitting a yacht of this pedigree. LILITH will appeal to those who seek the ultimate daysailer.

 

These boats have dominated the wooden boat racing circuit in recent years, effortlessly outpacing much larger yachts with only working sails and minimal crew. LILITH has been lightly used by her owner. She is highly recommended to those who desire the penultimate classic for daysailing, overnighting or participating in the popular classic yachting circuit. LILITH represents an opportunity to save over a new Buzzards Bay 25.

LILITH has just had her brightwork completely refurbished. She is now in first class condition and ready to launch for Spring 2022. Please come and inspect this elegant lady. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for your interest.
