THE KID sails again!
After an extensive restoration, Snediker Yacht Restoration has relaunched THE KID. The last remaining American Yacht Club One-Design Class Raceabout was designed by BB Crowninshield and built by Rice Bros Corp in 1902. Originally built for famous yachtsman Oliver Harriman Jr, later in her career she gained a reputation as an award winning Long Island Sound racer under the ownership of Clifford D. Mallory as CLIPHORA. See the full gallery detailing her restoration here.
Attention to Quality and Detail
Snediker Yacht Restoration builds, restores and repairs classic wooden boats. We specialize in traditional construction and have for over thirty years. We have built an outstanding reputation for attention to quality and detail, and have gained a deep understanding of what can go wrong in a wooden boat and how to fix it. Our small, conscientious crew represent about a century and a half of combined experience working on all types of boat projects. Snediker Yacht has worked on racing boats meant to be sailed hard and put away wet, museum pieces that will never see the water, and classic cruisers, comfortable and elegant. More importantly, we have built long lasting relationships with our clients, their families and the boats they love.
