Varnish refinishing done Summer 2022, in excellent condition
CHARM is in exceptional condition having just completed a $20,000 refit/ refinishing. All work has been done and she is ready to launch at any time. SK 64 does not have a trailer, but one can be ordered and purchased separately if needed.
L. Francis Herreshoff was partial to the advantages of comparatively shallow draft designs. He compensated for this factor by employing longer waterlines, easily driven body plans and sensible, moderate-sized rigs and sail plans.
The Stuart Knockabout is a splendid example of these basic design principles. She is exceptionally fast and, therefore, a joy to sail. She also has surprising power and is not slowed perceptibly by an oncoming sea. She is comfortable and forgiving, and with every unnecessary piece of complicated gear absent, what is left is an uncluttered, simple, easily handled thoroughbred.
Stuart Knockabouts are used in PHRF racing and there are a few class races popping up on the East Coast. These easy and wonderful sloops have even been placed on large vessels and mega yachts for a fun daysailing option when at port.
She is currently at Ballentine's Boat Shop, Cataumet, MA, and available for inspection by appointment.Email for more information about this listing or to schedule an appointment for viewing; call Amy or Matt at 508-563-2800
