The Doughdish (Herreshoff 12) design turns 100 years old this year!


The only fiberglass Herreshoff 12 1/2
for H-class racing

Doughdish with Spinnaker

Generations of discriminating yachting families on the New England coastline have owned these boats. Many have changed hands by inheritance. A Doughdish is ideal for beginners, for Class racing, or casual daysailing by all ages, and will be appreciated as a proper additional or replacement yacht by the old hand who finds a larger one burdensome. Doughdish crossing the finish

She is exceptionally seaworthy and capable in all kinds of weather, as comfortable to sail as a small boat can be, is surprisingly fast, and has abundant space for a crew of 4 persons. She is lovely to single-hand, and can be managed by children or great-grandmothers, yet still enjoyed by seasoned yachtsmen and women. In addition, she is distinctively charming with beautiful lines and first class construction. She turns readily and reliably, has a self-tending jib, and accommodates her crew inside the cockpit on ample seats with unobstructed legroom. The sheets are normally cleated, rather then held, as in most small sailboats. You can stand anywhere on the boat without fear of instability. It takes no time to set sail or put her to bed. The fiberglass hull is relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain and is very strong.

In short, in every respect, she is "just right".
