Eurynome is a classic example of L. Francis Herreshoff's iconic Rozinante, Deign No.98. She was originally built in 1965 by Dave Todd, who at the time was a young man working for Allan Vaitses in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. She was built for the Morris family of Philadelphia to be used in the waters of Little Narragansett Bay and Fisher’s Island Sound convenient to their summer home in Haversham, Rhode Island. With the passing of Mr. Morris in 1996, Eurynome was sold to the proprietor of Stonington Boat Works who sailed her until her age and the relative inexperience of her original builder became impossible to ignore. As the accompanying photos show, she was given a new hull and backbone at Stonington Boat Works in 2011-12 to our usual high standards, and should be around to be enjoyed for many years to come. She is 28' long, 6' 4" of beam, and draws 3' 9". Our homepage photograph was taken from her cockpit, which is a very nice place to be, indeed.
We are fortunate to have a complete set of building molds and templates for this design, along with a ballast casting and a full set of hardware cast for and machined by Mr. Herreshoff himself. We are actively soliciting a sailor with the vision and wherewithal to have one built, and will gladly provide details and specifications upon request.
