Overview

KESTREL

KESTREL is the fifth of eighteen Fishers Island 31 racing sloops built by Herreshoff manufacturing Co. between 1926 and 1946.  She underwent a major repair rebuilding and refit period between 1994 and 1997 by Frank McCaffrey of narragansett Shipwrights of Newport, RI.  A carbon fiber rig was designed by Halsey C. Herreshoff, a diesel auxiliary was installed, the electrical system was upgraded and all new stainless steel tankage was fitted.  More recently she received extensive refinish work to all exterior brightwork, refastening the cabin trunk, building a new mast step and making repairs to broken floors and frames.

More recently, in the course of routine maintenance the vesel received extensive refinish wrok to all exterior brightwork, refastening the cabin trunk, building a new mast step, and making repairs to broken floors an frames.

KESTREL is found to be in overall very good condition for her age.  Cosmetically, she is considered to be excellent.  Previous owners have sensitively conducted consistent maintenance and refits.  Modern upgrades blend well with the intent of her original designers an builder to achieve a fast and graceful yacht.
