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. 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 400 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. SK58 was built by Edey and Duff in 2003. She has benefited from having two committed owners and remains in great condition with yearly finish work completed professionally and numerous upgrades, including; a complete refinishing of the varnish, repainting the cockpit interior, and all new standing rigging in 2017. NEREID's sale includes multiple mainsails, a genoa, and both symmetrical and asymmetrical spinnakers. The 2003 DICO trailer is included and also in great shape.
