Designer: L. Francis Herreshoff
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.
In building each Stuart Knockabout, we have endeavored to preserve the essence of the original wooden boat and advance the comfort and sailing performance in a more forgiving and easier to maintain version. The foam cored fiberglass hull construction is also lighter and permits the addition of 2400 pounds of keel ballast, bringing the completed boat to her designed displacement, thereby increasing her capability to carry sail into a good breeze.
Stuart Knockabouts are great options for PHRF or one-design class racing.
HENRIETTA, SK39, was built in 2000 by Edey and Duff of Mattapoisett, Ma. and she has been well maintained by a professional yard on Buzzards Bay since purchase. With yearly varnish, bottom paint and topside care, SK39 would be in excellent condition.
SK39 is priced well by a motivated seller. HENRIETTA does NOT include a road trailer or cradle, but one can be purchased from Stuart Knockabout, LLC.
She is currently in indoor storage in Marion, MA and available for viewing with an appointment. Please contact Tyler Fields at Ballentine's Boat Shop via Email for more information about this listing or to schedule an appointment for viewing. Or call Tyler at 508-563-2800
