Re: Who has the newest Helms 25
I just purchased my first boat yesterday which just happens to be a Helms 25. If i'm reading the hull number correctly (JAH004700674) then she is hull #47 built in 1974. She's in very good condition for her age, apparently she was in the middle of a restoration when her owner died. She has a new bottom job including the keel (i can't see the whole thing, she's on a trailer and i have no way to lift her) which is pitted somewhat but not terribly so. She even has her original sails, 1 main, 1 jib, and 1 genoa (i don't know the size) and they're all in good condition especially considering the boat is 40 years old.
