Built in 1905, the stunning 76-foot sloop (later ketch) “Doris” (aka Vayu, Huntress, Astarte) is the largest all-wood sailboat ever built by the Herreshoff Mfg. Company. It has been languishing in a boat yard in New London CT for 30 years and was scheduled to be scrapped at the end of August 2013, but was given a one-year lease on life through Snediker Yacht Restoration of Pawcatuck until a new owner could be found. Now, thanks to a generous and enthusiastic client, DORIS has been saved. The restoration, a 5 year + project, bringing her back to original specifications will be the largest ever undertaken by Snediker Yacht Restoration. A feature documentary following her restoration is currently under way.
