Knimble was built by Robert Brandriff, of Moss Beach CA in 1972, 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 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.
