Some boats represent the overlap of beauty and efficiency.  Opportunities to enjoy these, both at work and rest, are worth taking.   Today, TICONDEROGA OF GREENWICH rewarded scrutiny.

  3. Herreshoffs' have such an exquisite line. There is no other vessel like them. This one is no different: a real beauty.

  4. We are lucky to be able to see this boat often at our club, Riverside Yacht Club where its owner belongs. Never get tired of admiring its beauty.

  5. Love seeing Big Ti every other year at the start of the Marblehead Halifax Race - I see a fleece with the logo on deck!
