Designed by Sparkman & Stephens for Arthur Islen as a comfortable day sailer with a deep cockpit , COURAGEOUS has proved herself fast in Classics Racing. Built by Henry B. Nevins in 1947 of double planked mahogany on oak frames and keelson with bronze fastenings, she has all her original hardware and looks today exactly as she did at launching. A perfect time capsule ready for her next caretaker. Each of her three owners to date has endeavored to keep her original. With moderate freeboard and clean lines, she performs well under sail while her comfortable cockpit with a removable table makes non sailors feel secure underway and provides old salts a place to lean back and gam at the end of the day.

Wet stored this winter and easily inspected.
