14' Brutal Beast Class Sailboat

by JOhn

14' Brutal Beast Class sailboat.

This is a cat boat style boat that was designed by renowned designer Starling Burgess for his children when they sailed in Marblehead back in the 1920's.

This boat is hull number 166 built at the Quincy Adams Yacht Yard probably back in the 1930's or 40's.

It is cedar planked over oak frames.

The mast, boom, sails and rudder were replaced about 6 years ago and were made faithful to the original plans from Mystic Seaport.

It was also re fastened at that time.

It is a very beamy boat and is fun and simple to sail.

It has been in the water and sailed for the past few years, but it is time to move on.

It is in good shape but needs to be caulked.

We want this to go to a good home.

It is a rare classic.

There are only a few others still in existence.

$2,000 or best offer.

Good Afternoon,

I am in the market for a wooden boom.

Would you consider selling just the boom ?
