Corten steel frames create the bones of this lovely L. Francis Herreshoff Marco Polo 56. Over these steel frames traditional mahogany plank-on-frame construction techniques have rendered a strong, ocean going, family cruiser. This vessel, shortly after completion sailed her family on the 1957 Trans-Pacific race, then known as the "Honolulu Race". The family reports they came in dead last as the matriarch aboard refused to allow the "boys" to have the sails up at night! Since that time she has sailed the Northwest waters until in 1996 she was hauled for a major remodel and design change of the cabin, decks and interior, all performed by Legendary Yachts in Washougal, WA. Dry stored since that time the sellers report she needs some rigging, both standing and running, navigation electronics plus some hull work. The president of Legendary Yachts thought about $50,000 would put her in excellent sea-worthy condition again. This is clearly a capable world cruising vessel. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
