NEPENTHE28' Herreshoff Rozinante 1972

$ 19,900

Perhaps the ultimate Gentleman's day sailor. The Rozinante class has remained one of L.F. Herreshoff's most beloved designs. Her relatively light displacement and narrow beam make her efficient and quick under sail. The Rozinante's stout whaleboat like hull and moderate sail plan make her a very secure and able boat even when the weather pipes up.

"L. Francis himself wrote somewhat immodestly you will find her a beautiful model and elsewhere you'll find her lauded as one the most beautiful and graceful vessels ever designed and hypnotically beautiful."

NEPENTHE is the name for a fictional drug from Homer's Odyssey for banishing grief or trouble from a person's mind.
