The 131ft/40m schooner Vagrant was originally designed and built by Herreshoff in 1913. 

In 2017, Vagrant’s current owner decided to bring her to Royal Huisman’s dedicated refit division – Huisfit – for a major refit, and provided a very clear brief to the team:

What ensued was a very extensive rebuild project, carried out by Huisfit’s dedicated inhouse team at the Royal Huisman shipyard, and supported by expert consultation with Dykstra Naval Architects on the upgrade of Vagrant’s rig by Royal Huisman’s sister company, Rondal.

Although Huisfit-projects are never a “typical refit”, the vast scope of this 22 months Huisfit project made it more like a new build.
