Broker’s Comments

Yachting World Seahorse, ROCINANTE is a splendid compact cruiser racer from Van de Stadt which has been optimised for classic regatta racing and she has done very well. You can see her results including a third in the recent Tattinger 2022 regatta below.

Apart from her racing credentials, ROCINANTE is a comfortable, versatile family cruising yacht and she is perfect for family cruises between some cup collection should you wish. She can be sailed either with a Bermudian sloop or a gaffed mainsail. She is not a huge investment considering her capability, condition and the amount of recent equipment and sails that are included in the sale.

Owner’s Comments

Van der Stadt designed the Seahorse in 1959, she was built in 1974.

One owner (builder) before current owner. Prepared for competitive racing in classic regattas. Due to design age, build year, and Van der Stadt, her hull is ahead of its time. Can be successfully raced – as proven by the two regattas she has taken part in with current owners.

Van der Stadt did not follow IOR etc. as can be seen by her hull shape and ability to plane downwind. He became famous for his designs such as BLACK SOO, ZEESLANG, STORMVOGEL, VOORTREKKER etc. with similar characteristics.

ROCINANTE has the option of racing Bermudan rigged or with her gaff mainsail etc.

With the latter, she beat the crème of the Solent Gaffer fleet in 2016.

This year (2022), she raced Bermudan and had excellent results in the Taittinger Regatta in the RYA NHC class.

If we had the opportunity, we would have wished to enter her in events such as Cowes Classics, Hamble Classics etc. and maybe a ‘raid’ in the RIR under ISC rating.
