Norwalk Yacht Club Launch - Design 1521

For those of you familiar with the club launch at the Norwalk (CT) Yacht Club you will be pleased to know she was designed by Sparkman & Stephens and launched in 1961, named Greens Ledge. The fiberglass launch was built by the Jakobson Shipyard in Oyster Bay, Long Island.

Here we are performing an inclining test the boat for the US Coast Guard certification for carrying passengers.

  6. This is the best launch that I've driven. Spray is minimal and the motion is easy. The hard chine hull shape reduces rolling. The flat run aft with the skeg cutout combined with the deeper hull profile in the bow makes for fantastic turning. The stern rotates around the bow, making for easy, tight 180-degree turns. The low profile bow has less windage, and doesn't blow around in the breeze. This is the launch that you want when the wind starts piping up.
