Heritage 12 Sailboat

Heritage Raid Boats.
Versatility to fit your lifestyle.

NEW! ALL 3 HERITAGE CLASSICS COME AS AMAZING SAILBOATS.
The sailboat package provides you with everything that you will need to convert your Heritage from the traditional rowing dory to a sailboat. You can order your Heritage this way, or convert an existing Heritage.
The Heritage 12 was specifically designed to be a combination rower boat and sail boat. She does both well. The stability is fine under sail, yet the extreme lightweight and famous Heritage shape make her a joy to row. sailboat-abow-trimmed-for-w1It comes with a straight forward main sail, stepped through the forward seat. All components can be rigged at sea, and stowed on board.
The Heritage 15 and Heritage 18 are known for being remarkably stable under oar. In fact, to this day there has not been a single reported capsize. But sailboats heel to the side under sail. To prevent this, the Sailboat Package has a new Flotation Sponson that attaches to the rub rail and inflates. This makes these remarkable rowing boats extremely stable for sailing. It adds a mere 6 lbs., and slides on and off with ease. Even better, it does not touch the water when rowing, so removing it is optional.

If adventure is in your heart, the Heritage Sail and Sliding seat is the ultimate Raid Boat: one of the few that actually rows well. Just ask Ward Wilcox. His Heritage Raid Boat row/sailed Watertribe’s 60 mile Ultimate Marathon. The experience is the joy. The wind was strong, and Ward could have made better time under sail. But rowing these boats is so fun, he chose to row 40 of the 60+ miles. Even still, he placed 2nd in class and 5th overall.
All the rowing gear is removable, and can be stowed across the outrigger arms, to make the interior large enough for camping and sleeping. Coming soon is a Camping Dodger to keep you dry under the stars.
More photos are coming soon. We are excited about these new Raid Boats and invite your inquiries.
