----- SOLD -----

Equinox has been sold and removed from her old home in Madeira Beach, Florida. The new owner may want to continue posting her adventures here, so this site will remain dormant until that decision is made. In the meantime, thanks to all who visited and reached out with comments and inquiries.

Home: About

​Equinox is a ketch-rigged wooden sailboat designed in 1947 by L. Francis Herreshoff. Her construction is more recent, having begun on May 31 of 1987. The engine-driven mastless hull and deck was launched on March 11, 2000, but rig and interior work continued until departure for her first cruise on May 17, 2005.


Due to the owner/builder's increasing age and decreasing energy, Equinox is now (sadly) up for sale. At $39,000, she is just a bit over the $1000/foot benchmark for smaller and much less seaworthy boats. If you believe you are worthy and would like to own this beautiful little ship, please get in-touch by clicking the button below.
