The "Marco Polo" was L. Francis Herreshoff's favorite design. Raindancer is a great example of this 3 masted 55' Schooner that is designed for cruising the world. At $54,950, she is a great adventure waiting to happen!


She recently had a haul out and bottom job this last weekend, and she has a permanent transferable liveaboard slip in Moss Landing, CA near Monterey, CA.
