Tern, 28' gaff yawl
Built by Gannon & Benjamin in 1995, Tern is the first of Nat Benjamin's Tern class design, of which G&B has built four. Inspired by L.F. Herreshoff's Rocinante, Nat added about 18" of additional beam, fuller sections, a larger cockpit and cabin, and close to 1,500 pounds of addtional displacement--all to make the Terns suitable for coastal crusing and day sailing.
The keel is made of angelique and frames are steam-bent white oak. The canoe stern, fore keel and stem are naturaly curved black locust lock-scarfed together. Planking is Atlantic or Eastern white cedar save for the sheer strakes and garboards which are full length wana. Cabin sides, dockpit coamings and toe rails are silver balli. All fastenings are bronze.
The deck is Dynel over marine plywood and the cabin top is also covered in Dynel.
Tern does not have an inboard engine. The owner, however, offers a choice of outboards to accompany Tern: a Honda 2hp or Yamaha 5hp.
LOD: 38'3" BEAM: 7'6" DRAFT: 3'10" SAIL AREA: 357 sq.ft DISPLACEMENT: 8,000lbs BALLAST: 3,400lbs

Solace, 38' ketch
Solace is a lovely
38’ Luders-designed, double ended ketch, built by Paul Luke of East Boothbay,
ME. Twice a winner of the Eggemoggin
Reach Regatta, she is obviously a very good sailer.
Solace is a
project boat for someone desiring a fast vessel capable of simple coastal
cruising. Following a collision
approximately 10 years ago which dismasted her, her present owner undertook a
rig change from her original ketch rig to a tall sloop rig. Chain plates were altered slightly to
accommodate this change and a used “bendy” aluminum mast was acquired. At this time, the cabin house was lowered
several inches, considerably improving her looks. Solace awaits
a new owner to either complete the conversion or put her back to her original
rig. She has been well covered. The
mizzen, mizzen boom, and main boom are available if the original rig were to be
is very basic--no fancy joinery—with a galley, quarter berth to starboard, two settees with Concordia berths above, and
one pipe berth forward with toilet.
Power is provided by a 25hp Westerbeke
4-99 and the electrical system is basic.
Solace is a no
nonsense simple boat which needs an owner to undertake the necessary cosmetic
cleaning up and rig work. The finished
result won’t be disappointing.

Sandpiper, 18' electric canoe
Sandpiper, an 18’ electric-powered canoe
This interesting craft is used by her present owner to explore the inlets and great ponds of Martha’s Vineyard, for which she is well suited and moves in perfect silence.
Sandpiper is double diagonal-planked and copper rivet-fastened. To ensure continued watertight integrity and ease of maintenance, she has been glassed over. Power is provided by two deep cycle, 75amp batteries connected to a small electric motor, producing a speed of 5.5 knots. Her present configuration allows her to be underway 6-8 hours without recharging.
Her owner believes she was built to move commandos during World War II and later converted to a pleasure craft.
Sandpiper comes with a custom trailer in like new condition.
Asking price: 11,500. Offers encouraged.
This little boat is the classic Beetlecat, no. 1240. She has been totally rebuilt at G&B to a much higher standard than the original construction, including all new frames, floors, sheer strakes, garboards, keel, centerboard trunk, transom, deck and coaming. She's ready to go!
LOA: 12' BEAM: 6' DRAFT: take her onto the beach
The Hazel 18
The Hazel 18, an 18’ centerboard sloop, is Nat’s latest design. Gannon and Benjamin built two Hazel 18s during the 2011-2012 winter and launched both June 2012. Molly carries a Marconi rig, and Hazel is gaff rigged.
The Hazel 18 reflects several factors Nat considers relevant to today’s marketplace and to the general drift of sailing requirements observed on the Vineyard and elsewhere: The Hazel 18 is a responsive and fine-performing daysailer for all ages. It can be sailed onto a beach and is easily trailered and easy to maintain.
With her generous sail area, long LWL and powerful quarters, the Hazel 18 is attractive to younger sailors for racing and adventuring while not discouraging an older generation of sailors who will appreciate the bench seats and comfortable coaming to support the lower back.
To quote Nat, "Of course, she is just a big dinghy so in a stiff breeze the kids can sit up on the weather side deck and keep her upright while dad or granddad steers in relative comfort."
These two Hazel 18s have painted topsides, deck, and bottom, and varnish has been used only on the spars. Their coamings and guard rails have been finished with tung oil and their interiors with Penefin.
The hull is built of 5/8" white cedar over oak frames. The deck is marine plywood with canvas set in rubber paint. The coamings, rails, seats and floor boards are either of wana or silver balli. All fastenings and hardware are silicon bronze.
They are ready to go!
LOA: 18’3" LWL: 17’5" BEAM: 6’3" DRAFT: 10"/3’9" SAIL AREA: 171sq.ft.
Both boats are being rigged, and Hazel will be at the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic, June 29-July 1, 2012.
