48' Classic - Design No. 2760


In June of 2007 the 56' sailing yacht Anna was launched from the Brooklin Boat Yard of Maine. She is a 56' sloop aesthetically based on the Stormy Weather design (design #27), but below the water she has a modern hull shape, bulb keel and carbon spade rudder. She was constructed using cold-molded wood Epoxy methodology and is a very competitive and successful design.

A lot has been written about Anna in the yachting press and as a result we have received numerous inquiries about this design. However, many felt that at 56' overall she was either too much to handle or too much boat to be affordable. Taking the hint we have developed a smaller version. At 48' she is typical of classic Sparkman & Stephens designs with flush deck, stylish deckhouse and aft cockpit. The interior is quite simple: opposing berths/settees, small galley, head with separate shower. Pipe cots can be added forward of the mast if desired. She can be constructed of fiberglass or wood. The spar package is available in aluminum or carbon fiber.

Please feel free to call or write for study plans and more information.
