Sailboats - Cruising


Cadenza was built in 2003 by Rockport Marine from a design by L. Frances Herreshoff. The design was modified slightly by Bruce Hylan to move the mizzen aft in order to make the steering more comfortable, effectively turning the original ketch sail plan into a yawl.

She is built traditionally with cedar planking on oak frames and spruce spars. While the original Rozinante design was set up for rowing as auxiliary power, Cadenza has an 8 HP Yammer diesel. 

She is currently cared for by Noank Marine Services in Noank, Connecticut, along with four other Rozinantes. 

She was briefly mentioned in WoodenBoat #192 in an article by Maynard Bray titled "A Quartet of Exceptional Ketches" along with the Benjamin Mendlowicz photograph included here.
