Mashnee

One of the original 14 strong fleet of Buzzard’s Bay 30 which were originally commissioned for members of Beverly Yacht Club who wanted a shallower draft day race-boat with a cutter rig. In 1939, Mashnee was fit with a Marconi rig and remains that way today. She draws 8 feet 4 inches with the centerboard down and only 5 feet 4 inches with the board u

2004 – lies abandoned at the Hague Marina in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Mashnee has been through a complete restoration by Darlings Boatworks in Charlotte, VT.    She was relaunched in May 2008 on Lake Champlain.   Vermont Sailing Partners built her new sails.

New owner Jan Rozendaal and builder George Darling teamed up to thoroughly restore Mashnee. They undertook this work at Darlings Boatworks in Charlotte, Vermont at the same time as French & Webb were restoring three other boats of this 1902 class in Belfast, Maine (see WB Nos. 203 and 204). All four were completed and launched in 2008, with Mashnee having a Doug Hylan–designed marconi rig and a different interior layout. What a grand sight to see these four beauties on the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta courses!

Jan and Mary Rozendaal kindly donated this museum quality yacht to the MIT sailing program to be sailed and raced in 2018 and beyond.
