Gannon & Benjamin: Birthplace of beautiful boats.

Last year's sailing season started with the launch of the Sheena, built by Gannon & Benjamin in Vineyard Haven. An original Nat Benjamin design called the Holmes Hole 29, the name conjures up Vineyard Haven's sailing history in two words--Holmes Hole, the original name of the seaside village in Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard and my home port.
