    Stanley Bishoprick Jr. and his son Stanley Bishoprick lll (later the founder of Legendary Yachts) built this vessel starting in 1946. Launched in 1956 it was built from L. Francis Herreshoff's design #85. Built from traditional mahogany plank-on-frame construction the seller reports Corten steel was used as framing instead of wood. In the late '90s and early 2000s a restoration and cabin re-configuration was done by the team at Legendary Yachts. The cabin top and decks were all replaced; several planks in the hull were also replaced. The tanks were moved and re-installed to accommodate an interior renovation. The cabin / house styling and much of the interior saloon was re-styled at that time. The vessel was never re-launched after this but maintained in dry storage. Entering the vessel from an aft cockpit you step down to the galley to port and a navigation station to starboard. The galley has both refrigeration and freezer, a double basin sink, plenty of counter space and a large diesel stove with oven. There is a pilot berth aft to the starboard side. Forward is the salon with surround seating to port and a settee to starboard. The companionway going forward is to the starboard side. First cabin on your port side is the master with a double berth. Forward of that same side is the first head with shower. Next cabin forward is entered in the center of the vessel. It is a bunk style room with two singles on each side. Ultimately forward is the second head again with a shower.

    Each cabin has a wide variety of storage lockers, hanging lockers and drawers. Virtually everything inside the boat appears as new construction. All mattresses and seating cushions have been wrapped and placed in storage.

    Throughout the boat the floors are teak and holly solid wood coupled with headliners that are open beam varnished surfaces. A large butterfly hatch compliments the salon as do the polished bronze opening port-lights throughout the boat. 0 burner Diesel cooker windlass
