This gorgeous cruising ketch is one of the late L.Francis Herreshoff's favorite designs. Her heavily ballasted keel has no problem holding the 673 square feet of sail in just about any weather. Her sister ship sailed to Ireland and never heeled over more than 18 degrees. Very comfortable.
This is truly a cruising man's dream and only requires two people to handle her. She is beautiful and completely custom built down below. Many species of wood were used to decorate her cabinetry. the sole is hard maple with teak strips. Cherry, here and there. Painted bulkheads to offer a brightness that gives her a airy feeling.
