92’ Ketch WHITEHAWK – The design of S/Y WHITEHAWK, by Bruce King, was influenced by the L. Frances Herreshoff 1936 Ketch TICONDEROGA. Construction began in 1975 in Lee’s Boat Shop of Rockland Maine and at the time it was the largest yacht built using cold molded construction. She was launched in 1978.
WHITEHAWK came to EPB in 2009 for keel and hull planking repairs. Over the subsequent years EPB completed various projects including: the reconstruction of the ten sided Mandala skylight, genoa track replacement, caprail repairs, interior modifications, rig modifications and the refurbishment of the galley.
