History

After writing the Compleat Cruiser, Francis Herreshoff was commissioned to design the versatile canoe stern yacht that featured throughout the novel. The Rozinante was the result, and is a collectible yacht in the New England area of the US where it was originally built. Very rare in Australia, it is an idea coastal and bay day-sailor, with a modest cabin featuring twin v-berth, this yacht brings to life the spirit of sailing in a way that few yachts can.
