History

“Built at the Simms Bros. Shipyard in Dorchester, Massachussets, for J.J. Storrow, she was designed by Sam Crocker. Out of his many designs Mercury is often considered as “perhaps one of his best achievements” according to Joel White, (the prestigious designer of the Class W traditional boats), as he himself states in the epilogue of the book published by Sam’s son, Sturgis Crocker, showing numerous photos and drawings of his father’s designs where Mercury bears number 191.
The boat was in principle designed for the waters of New England and Bermuda, and had one sole owner for thirty years. She then changed hands several times, and so graced the waters of different places along the eastern coast of the United States.

Mercury has a double hull, mahogany on cedar screwed onto American oak. The oak beams support the deck made of Honduran teak. The spruce mast and boom are the original.”
