More on Sparkman & Stephens 48' Classic - Design 2760

On July 2nd and July 3rd we posted information regarding a 48' classic along the lines of a downsized Anna, our design 2721. Anna is a 56' classic sloop that was launched in 2007. She was built by Brooklin Boat Yard and is a beautiful wooden boat.

Since her launch we have had a lot of interest from people wanting to build a sistership. However, building one is a ~$2,000,000 proposition and is not within the reach of many sailors.

The development of the S&S48 is as follows: Having just launched (see posting of September 10th) a 48' modern classic at Lyman Morse, we have taken advantage of the fact a high quality hull mold exists and have styled a deck in a similar fashion to Anna (and Stormy Weather, etc). As such we have developed a scaled down version of Anna.

Our earlier postings showed an interior layout in a daysailer configuration. Since that time we have developed an interior arrangement with some optional layouts as well. Please note that in the following general arrangement we show a 3 cabin boat. The excerpts are substitutions: if one wishes to have a separate shower (on port) then the port quarter cabin is lost, a separate shower is added as well as a pilot berth. If one wishes to have a bigger galley then the starboard quarter cabin is lost and a much improved galley is substituted.

We are anticipating serious cost savings due to the fact this is a much smaller boat and by using the existing hull tooling. For additional information please feel free to contact us.
