“Vivace”, a Classic Rozinante

This traditional 28-ft LOA Rozinante masthead ketch was designed by L. Francis Herreshoff. It was built in 1992 by The Apprenticeshop in Rockland, Maine, and is in unadulterated form: it is fully wooden with a painted canvas foredeck, and no inboard power source has been added. For boaters interested in adding a motor, a side bracket with a small electric motor could power this light, and graceful, beauty. (Note: No bracket or motor currently comes with the boat).

The boat sails well, and was raced twice in the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta. The boat has been kept covered during the winter, and was in the water last summer.


  • LOA = 28 ft, Draw = 3 ft, Beam = 7 ft
  • Canoe-stern masthead ketch.
  • All sails shown in photos–and full rigging–included.

This boat has been a pleasure it sail, and although it needs some cosmetic TLC in the interior, it could be ready to sail tomorrow.
