Video: Classic Motor Yacht Stiletto on Narragansett Bay
August 18, 2014
Halsey Fulton of Fish Hawk Films was lucky enough to get some footage of the legendary 1978 Stiletto cruising on Narragansett Bay.
At 48′ long and with a beam of less than 7′, Stiletto can run at speeds of up to 25 knots with her 250-hp Yanmar. The classic wooden rocket is based on the proportions of early US Navy torpedo boats.
In 2011, Herreshoff Designs modified Stiletto for cruising on the East Coast, and she now spends her time in Bristol, Rhode Island, and on the west coast of Florida.
