1982 Buzzards Bay 14

The Buzzards Bay 14 is L. Francis Herreshoffs  answer to Llewelyn Howlands request for a slightly larger version of Nathaniel Herreshoffs tried and true 12 ½.  Mr. Howland, of the founding family of the Concordia Company, was a discerning customer and the resulting boat was a svelte little yacht of robust construction set atop L. Francis signature rabbeted ballast keel.  With a Marconi sail plan of approximately the same square footage as the 12 ½ the design provides ease of handling with a bit more run to drive through the inevitable chop of a Buzzards Bay afternoon.  In June of 2019 a completely restored 1982 example of LFHs design number 86 will be available for purchase from the Boatbuilding and Restoration program at IYRS.  If you like the fathers work, check out what the artistic son could do.
