the s&s-designed, nevins-built 45’ 1936 “new york thirty two”salty is presently in our shop.
we are replacing her cabin top, using the original nevins narrow-strip method. we are also repairing interior bulkheads and replacing her rudder hardware. salty will be readied for the season by mp&g and launched at mystic shipyard.
we are also working on rig and hardware projects
for the 62’ nicholas potter-designed sloop serenade. this work includes completing a self-tending jib and corresponding deck hardware installation.
every year, mp&g also commissions the “new york thirty” amorita and the fife-designed six-meter clarity.
read our restoration philosophy
we expect to soon begin a complete restoration of the 32’ 1914 herreshoff “buzzards bay twenty five” mink #733.
mink is lead boat and the last remaining unrestored boat of the 733 class. upon her completion all four boats of this class will have been restored by mp&g. mink is due to be completed in time for the centennial celebration of her class in 2014.
we are also planning the restoration of a 25’ herreshoff “fifteen footer” for the summer of 2013.
mp&g always keeps an eye out for potential restoration candidates.
we keep an unofficial list and try to match clients with boats. presently on site is a 1911 herreshoff p-class sloop and a 34’ 1931 herreshoff “fishers’ island twenty three”. both of these boats are privately owned, would be excellent and important restoration projects, and might be available to the right person. we are also aware of other boats that are or might be available.
