MeadowLark 33' 1960
Tell a Friend

General Description
The MeadowLark was ketch-rigged, 33 feet long and instead of a keel or centerboard, had leeboards like the Dutch Boier yachts, wing like things that are alternately dropped and lifted when tacking.

The draft of the boat was 15 inches, a wondrous fact in a 33-foot sailboat and a statistic which opened a world of cruising grounds that seldom see a sailboat.

Actual Condition

This classic example of a 33 MeadowLark needs some TLC to bring her back to her glory. She has recently been used and has not been neglected to the point of no return. This should be on the must see list of anyone who is looking for a rewarding project that will surely cause a stir in any harbor sailed.

It is reported by the owner that the headroom, sitting, as he remembers Herreshoff's plan, is 4'8". The deck is plywood over white oak frames with fiberglass cloth covering. The deck is tight. The boat needs to be caulked (slick seam, not cotton or oakum). It needs to be sanded and painted, inside and out, and the interior needs to be cleaned and painted, as does the engine.

The boat is made of the very best materials, white oak framing, hard yellow pine bottom, cedar sides with white oak top board for the leeboards. Sitka spruce masts and new sails with a jib furler. The interior contains two forward bunks and one large bunk on the port side and a porta-potti. There is a compass that is in the boat on the bunk. There is a 2 burner alcohol stove that is not in the boat presently. The boat is covered. The sails and stove are in storage. The details of its construction are available to be seen in "Sensible cruising designs", by L. Frances Herreshoff.

A trailer is not included in this sale.
