NASHUA is the fourth W.46 racing yacht to be built at Rockport Marine.  Designed by Bob Stephens, the W.46s are one-design racing sloops that are competitive in the Spirit of Tradition class across many classic yacht regattas.

NASHUA has a cold-molded wooden hull, teak-over-plywood deck and elegant interior trimmed with cherry. She carries a beautiful laminated teak wheel common to all the W-Class yachts, as well as a striking inlay on her sole.

Her classic looks belie her status as a modern racing yacht with carbon spars by Hall Spars and a very well thought-out arrangement of running rigging.
