(Reprinted from the original brochure) – A modified Herreshoff design by Cheoy Lee Shipyard of Hong Kong. A racing-cruising vessel, offered as a sloop or ketch, with emphasis on speed, comfort and utility.

With a low wetted surface, long and stable lateral plane, she is fast and easy to handle with maximum rudder control on all points of sailing. She has an easy “big-boat” motion and is quite dry in a chop.

The side decks are wide, and like the foredeck, clear of obstacles to aid in sail handling. The tiller aft leaves plenty of room for a big crew and the modern sloop rig is most efficient for racing. Ketch rigged the Offshore-31 is excellent for offshore cruising.


Nepenthe is currently used for private charters, commercial photo-shoots and live Dockside Fashion Shows and Wine and Spirits Tasting events. Private photo shoots for weddings, engagements, and other occasions are available. Nepenthe can be chartered through CLASSIC SAILING CHARTERS, established in 1996 and is located in Coconut Grove, Florida.
