The very first Heritage designed and built by Captain Andrew Davidhazy and Howie Renner is now available. This is a rare opportunity to own a unique and ageless classic.
I am the grandson of the designer of these boats, Captain Andrew Davidhazy. His friend and partner who built the boats was Howie Renner. I acquired his very first Heritage from his family's estate in 2015. My family have both a great sentimental and sailing interest in this boat, but the opportunity to sail her has been rather limited. I have decided that she would be better off with someone that would appreciate and sail her as she deserves.
The boat is currently at my father's house in Rochester, New York, on it's trailer and ready to be moved. It is in all original condition. Sails and trailer included. There have been a few other Heritage boats sold in recent years in the range of $8000-$12,000.
The Heritage is a 20-foot cruising sloop that will sleep 4 adults in the cabin. Overall she's in excellent condition, though would benefit from some wood treatment and new sails. A main sail and a genoa are included, as is the refurbished custom fitted trailer (with a 20 ft. extension built-in). The trailer was specifically designed for the Heritage and it has been fully restored and reinforced at a cost of more than $1000. The original Westerbeke 5 hp inboard currently does not run and would need repair, but it is clean, takes oil and gas, and all parts move freely. I had a service assessment done by a mechanic, but he didn't have the expertise to the do the work himself. The teak woodwork is all original and complete, but some reconditioning would be good to ensure continued long life. The wood mast is also original and in good condition. Though I have not tested the original built-in sink, stove or head, they do all appear to be complete and in excellent condition.
You can see a bit of history as to how this Heritage came to my possession as well as some current pictures of the interior and exterior below. Also check out this Heritage information and community website which is maintained by my father and has more detail about the boat, Howie and Andy.
