Construction Wood Strip Plank
Underwater profile Long keel
Finish Paint finish

Length overall is 36' with bow sprit. This vessel is an L. Francis Herreshoff 1949 design replica. Laminated Brazilian Mahogany frames and planked with bright Douglas Fir. Headliner inside is Mahogany frames with marine plywood over. Hull has three epoxy coats on the inside, 2 layers of Dynel Boat Cloth and epoxy layers on the outside over which is painted Awlgrip topsides and hull. Bottom is awaiting re-launch to paint. Interior and cockpit configuration is of a daysailer. It has a long keel with molded lead ballast (5950LBS) which is through-bolted into the bilge where the keel bolts can be seen. Once the frames and jigs were set up to build this boat Legendary Yachts built three hulls -- this boat, another which is owned and sailed by the builder's family, and a third hull which is also available. This third boat is incomplete -- a hull with no deck or topsides finished -- for sale to be finished to the buyer's requirements.

This vessel was designed as a daysailer with a sleeping interior. There is a small built in counter / table on the aft port side where a modest galley could be constructed if desired. There are two settee seating areas alternating as single berths, one on each side plus a generous "V" berth in the bow. There are 4 gold plated bronze opening port lights allowing for ventilation. A bulkhead separates the interior living space from the engine room. As designed the vessel has limited head room with seating only. Under the hinged aft end of the "V" berth (just aft of the main mast) there is a self contained waste unit. (Porti potti) The family-use version of this boat is used for camping excursions when over-nighting but is primarily used as a very fast and fun daysailer. Modifications to the interior accommodations are still possible at a very reasonable shop rate by the craftsmen at Legendary Yachts.

Broker's Comments

"It is sometimes useful to glance over one's shoulder at yachts which have gone before, to an era in which the materials in a boat had a life of their own, when beauty of form was an aim in itself...Legendary Yachts is doing this, building classic designs using materials of that period and techniques of today. I admire that". Bill Crealock - Yacht Designer

This classic jewel is a reproduction of L. Francis Herreshoff's 33 foot ARAMINTA. Built by Legendary Yachts in 2000 it was built to remain true to Herreshoff's design and was executed with a high level of craftsmanship. The vessel was shipped to San Francisco as a new boat for the San Francisco Boat Show. She remained there for two years to be shown and to sail the bay, and was then shipped back home where it was re-painted, re-varnished, decommissioned and stored in the building where it had been built. Today it appears as a completely new boat. The masts and rigging are wrapped in plastic and are stored in racks. All the interior components are in protective wrapping. The sails and running rigging are bagged, marked and stowed.

Be prepared for the attention you'll received from anyone who appreciates classic yacht design and construction. This is a stunningly lovely boat.
