Built in Camden, in 1962, Heritage is a friendship sloop-inspired, gaff-rigged, wooden classic.

She was origially built for the president of the Friendship Sloop Society.

 

Heritage mimicks the look and sail plan of the original friendship sloops while incorporating the comforts of much larger Maine Windjammers. 

 

She was designed by Murray Peterson and built by Elmer Collomer in his barn on Cross Street in Camden.  Collomer has been refered to as the last of the old timers by wooden boat aficianado's who outlived him.

 

Beyond being extremely sea-kindly, this classic yacht is equipped with a comfortable private head (bathroom) and small simple galley.
