EXQUISITE! - the very first word that will come to mind when you lay your eyes on Raven. She was built as a re-creation of a 1935 L. Francis Herreshoff Mobjack Ketch in 1982. In 1999, she was re-fit and re-commissioned with the help of Naval Architect Robert Perry into a staysail schooner (see article written in November 2007 Latitudes & Attitudes). This is an estate sale and is a wonderful opportunity to own this unique and very beautiful vessel.
