Description: Herreshoff H-28 FOR THE WOODEN BOAT LOVER Encumbrance Check?
Built in the late 1940's by Griffin in Sydney as "Genesta" and refitted and renamed "Yaraandoo" in the 1970's. Clad in Queensland maple the masts and spars are the original spruce. House and trim are also in maple. I have owned her since 1995 and during that time carried out a careful restoration and maintenance program. I have rebuilt the cockpit with beech seating and carried out countless repairs all within the original design and construction. She has been slipped every 12 months for an antifoul and topside paint and varnish recoated every six months until a couple of years ago.

A Beta 20HP motor and new stainless diesel and water tanks were fitted in 1999 together with new electrics throughout including a Muir electric anchor winch and a Mastervolt battery charger. A Simrad Tiller pilot makes single handing easier but in most respects she is simply and traditionally set up with pipe berths, a metho stove and a small head (no holding tank). Sails are old but adequate for cruising.

She had a positive survey in 2013 and is still in good condition but the masts and spars are now in need of stripping and revarnishing and there is some work needed in sections of the sheathed plywood decks.
