1966 Herreshoff Rozinante – 28′


Classic Yacht $39,900.

An elegant classic yacht, 1966 fiberglass Rozinante 28’ ketch rig yawl. Designed by L. Francis Herreshoff and built by South Coast Seacraft Company. This double-ended beauty features a large deep cockpit with teak benches comfortably seating up to six adults for day sailing.

Susurrous has been well-maintained and wants for nothing. She has fresh sails and comes with a set of older sails. She has a battened mainsail and a newer furling jib. She also has a newer forestay with Hood roller furling and a Jiffy reefing mainsail, plus covers for the mainsail, mizzen, and cockpit. Susurrous’ buff-colored painted spars and booms are aluminum. Her sail plan and rigging are exact to L. Francis Herreshoff specifications.

She has tiller steering for a keel-hung rudder. Below deck offers a simple cabin with a comfortable v-berth for two, new v-berth cushions, and a galley with a hand pump and stove. Her two original deck hatches allow for plenty of light and air below deck. She has a reliable electric Thunderstruck engine and easily cruises at 6 knots at 1,500RPM. (Her four AGM batteries were replaced in 2021.)

Her white fiberglass hull is accented with a red boot stripe and green bottom paint. All exterior wood trim is freshly varnished (2022).

Susurrous is in Mid-Coast Maine and may be viewed by appointment.
