Bristol, RISell a boat like this
The Herreshoff S-Class is one of the most successfully raced one-design classes in history and VINDEX offers the rare opportunity to own a classic yacht with a proven race pedigree.
VIDEX was built in 1927 and was apart of the historic Larchmont NY Fleet before becoming a member of the Narragansett Fleet in the 1990's. Since coming to RI, VINDEX has been cared for and extensively restored by some of the most notable and respected wooden boat shops around; Frank McCaffery of Narragansett Shipwrights, Jim Titus of Mt. Hope Boatworks and East Passage Boatwrights.
The S-Class just celebrated it's 100th anniversary and VINDEX was tuned up in order to race fast! With a new mast and new suit of North Sails, won the first leg of the S-Class Centennial Series at Larchmont YC Race Week and then taking the overall Centennial Series trophy (Larchmont, Herreshoff Classic Yacht Regatta, Sail Newport).
VINDEX is a beautiful and well maintained yacht and she is ready to go fast!
