Description: ***MAJOR PRICE REDUCTION*** The Red Herring is a USCG registered cutter rigged pilothouse steel boat. She has less than 6' draft and 6'4" headroom. She has a double chine steel hull, modified fin keel, and skeg-mounted rudder. This custom boat 'Felicity' was designed by J. Simpson, a metal boat designer of the year award winner. Three boats of this design were built. The other two have circumnavigated. This means you are getting a proven bluewater capable boat without the miles and related wear and tear.

As owners we focused on preparation and maintenance. We pass this on to you with necessary tools, numerous spares, lots of offshore gear including a Hydrovane windvane and hydraulic autopilot, and the sundries often hard to find in Mexico. We have a builder's manual and most equipment manuals organized alphabetically in folders. The most recent survey was done in October 2017 and the boat has gone through two on the hard refits in December of 2017 and in April of 2018.

The Red Herring has proved herself in the cold winters of the Pacific Northwest up to Alaska and in the tropical climates south of the Tropic of Cancer. She is currently in the Sea of Cortez ready for the 2018-2019 cruising season and an April run west to the Marquesas or south to South America. With the quality of the maintenance and the amount of gear, there is no place in the world this boat cannot go.
