Designed by Nick Potter and built by Wilmington Boatworks in 1938
SERENADE was re-launched after complete restoration and re-building to the original details by William Cannell Boatbuilding in June of 2000.
SERENADE's restoration included laid, sheered, and caulked solid teak deck, new stem, new stern stem, complete reframing and fastenings, new deck joiner work, new hatches and new deck houses, a considerable amount of new planking; new systems including new engine and related systems, new bronze mast step, new bronze mast partners, restoration of her lovely original butternut interior panelling and joiner work, and all new galley.

Sea trials and her first season of classic yacht racing since her restoration have proved SERENADE to be remarkably fast and powerful. She can be HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to anyone looking for a yacht for the classic regattas, or to anyone who appreciates a graceful and well detailed classic yacht.

ROWDY 60' Herreshoff NYYC 40
Built 1916 - Exhaustive restoration recently completed. ROWDY is one only five remaining examples of the New York Yacht Club 40 class. For the classic boat enthusiast, the concept of the New York Yacht Club 40 makes as much good sense now as it did in 1916. They are fast and weatherly, and have roomy interiors. Herreshoff NYYC 40's MARILEE and RUGOSA have proved the NYYC 40's ability to dominate the classic yacht racing fleets by dint of their racing records. At the America's Cup Jubilee in Cowes, MARILEE won the King's Cup, for first around the Isle of Wight by a classic or vintage yacht. She also won The Anniversary Cup for the Best Performance by a Yacht in the Around the Island Race. She had the best corrected time in the entire fleet. In the other races at Cowes, MARILEE took a second in extremely heavy weather conditionseven through she broke her boom and had a man overboard). She did not race the following day while she repaired her boom but took firsts in all the remaining races. MARILEE tied RUGOSA for the Jubilee overall prize. Contact Bill Cannell: email@example.com
