1 Tonner - Design 2062

This one-tonner design was extensively used for both one-off and production boat building in both wood and fiberglass. The boat shown above (and below), Pathfinder" was build in New Zealand of wood by Brin Wilson, who built a number of S&S designed boats in the 1970s.

The boat shown below was one of the production run built in Australia and known as a Superstar 339 SS.

Here's the general arrangement for the wood version.

And here's a sail plan for yet another production fiberglass version, this with flush deck. Boats were also built in France and Italy.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 38'-7"
LWL 29'-7"
Beam 11'-5"
Draft 6'-6"

  1. I'm the new owner of Pathfinder; she is much faster than her sleek looks imply: pls note Pathfinder's overall win in the 1971 Sydney to Hobart race. At 41 years of age she is sound; I attribute this condition to the excellent shipwright Mr. Brin Wilson of Auckland (see Brinwilsonboats.co.nz for launch day pics). She is also rugged, built to race in the Southern ocean. And she is rare: kauri timber yachts with Sparkman and Stephens pedigree are hard to find. Yes, I'm bragging; but with cause.
