Dimensions: LOA 23ft. (7m), Beam 6ft.6in.(2m), Sail area 215sqft.(20sqm) Displacement 1300kg.

We have a variety of building options available, from the open Cockpit version (see Gem 2 below)to the fully enclosed Cabin version as per our first Daysailer ‘Jade’.

Please contact us for more information and to discuss the best building option for you.

Cabin Version – Jade

Open Version – Gem 2

Our second ‘Gem-Class’ is a full keel open version planked in mahogany and clear finished.She was built for an American client.

Curious to see how it all came together?

Our New Gem Class ‘Jade’ was built in true Herreshoff fashion to ensure that future ‘Gem Class’ Daysailers are built just as efficiently in wood.

We have created a building mould that allows us to start the next ‘Gem Class’ as soon as the previous one has been taken off the mould.
