Timber. NZ Kauri. Fully splined and copper fastened. 35mm x 40mm at 325mm centres.

Classic H28 timber ketch in exceptional order. NEW engine, recently re-rigged, new sails, recently varnished masts and splined hull - the list goes on. You will struggle to find another H28 in anything like this condition. Gleaming paint inside and out and a long inventory of new gear are the icing on the cake but "Minerva"'s charm lies in her beautiful lines. Comfortable to live aboard but with race-winning performance, she is the epitome of this classic L. Francis Herreshoff design.

Meticulous owners have left nothing for you to do! We strongly recommend inspection.
