Brooklin Boat Yard to Build Shorthanded Racer/Cruiser

Brooklin Boat Yard is pleased to announce that in June it will begin construction of 49-foot, cold-molded sailboat designed by Jim Taylor. The yacht is to be a lightweight, performance sloop with a traditional aesthetic above the waterline and a modern underbody below. The yacht is scheduled to launch in spring of 2014. The design was developed specifically for short-handed sailing on New England coastal waters as well as occasional competitive racing in a range of classes.

“The long sailing length and narrow beam will give this design a meter-boat feel, with low drag and an especially comfortable motion in a seaway,” says Jim Taylor, the yacht’s designer.

The yacht is to be highly customized for her owner. She’ll be a pleasure to sail, whether day-tripping with grandchildren or racing competitively with a handful of crew.
