Herreshoff 28, 1980 Rozinante Ketch

CYGNET is one of the well-known L. Francis Herreshoff Rozinante ketches.

The Rozinante probably represents Herreshoff's personal philosophy more than any other boat.

  • This is one of the most pleasurable small yachts for day sailing and pocket cruising ever designed as explained in his books, "Sensible Cruising Designs" and "The Compleat Cruiser."
  • CYGNET was built in 1980 and has always been in my family.
  • She is in excellent condition.
  • Easily driven, she sails remarkably in both light and heavy air, and rows easily with her two 10-foot oars.
  • She can be single-handed with ease, but her ergonomically superb cockpit comfortably accommodates up to six adults.
  • If the breeze picks up, she can be reefed, but handles beautifully with jib and mizzen.
  • Excellent reviews of the Rozinante design and sailing qualities were published in a Sept/Oct 2006 WoodenBoat Magazine article entitled "A Quartet of Exceptional Ketches," and in Roger Taylor's "Fourth Book of Good Boats."

    I am delighted to let you know that we have sold our boat to a local buyer who first saw her on your site. Your site was the only place we had her listed. We also received several out-of-state inquiries. I don't think I told you, but we bought our current boat, the Herreshoff 38 Ondean from a listing we saw on your site. Thanks for making this easy for us.
