Overview

 PETREL was well built by Hank Chamberlin to the well-known Herreshoff "Rozinante" design.  She is especially desirable in that she is a faithful reproduction of Herreshoff's plans.  The Rozinantes are responsive and well-balanced sailers and coast along in just a breath of air, while at the same time being able and comfortable heavy-weather sailers.  A Rozinante is ideal for daysailing and can comfortably accommodate six in its well-designed cockpit or can accommodate two for spartan cruising. The Rozinante design may well be the best statement of L. Francis Herreshoff's personal philosophy on boats:  she is the epitome of his ideas of "simplicity and elegance."  This is a very special design by one of the greatest designers.

Owner's Comments

Built in Portland, OR by Hank Chamberlin in 1973. She has been in New England for at least 25 years and in Maine since 2004. Current owner has owned her since 2012 and sails her as a pure sailboat. She has a portable outboard engine bracket and a 2-cycleTohatsu 3.5 hp outboard. The boat can be rowed for reasonable distances with the 12-foot oar provided. A 2014 survey found her to be in very good condition.The 12V electrical system has been renovated and improved, the sail covers replaced (2012), the cabin top recovered (2012) and the mainmast stripped to bare wood and refinished with 8 coats of varnish (2013). Petrel is stored indoors on a dirt floor, and comes with five adjustable metal stands.  Petrel is shipwright maintained knowledgeably and professionally.  Her hull was stripped to bare wood, sanded, primed and repainted in 2015. Her deck was sanded, primed and similarly re-coated then too.  Since then Petrel's hull, deck, cabin exterior, teak trim,masts and booms have been seasonally updated.  Her forward hatch was stripped to bare wood, refinished with eight coats of varnish and a new Plexiglass insert added in 2017.  New 12V marine battery and new solar panel charger were installed in 2014. Heavier marine grade plywood berth foundations were fabricated and installed in 2015 with new berth cushions and a separate cabin cushion installed in 2016.  Removable deck installed frames for supporting both masts during hauling were fabricated in 2016 and used since then.  While in Maine, she has been used primarily as a daysailer, but she can comfortably do overnight cruises with 1-2 people aboard.
