Concordia 52 - Design 2515

We were pleased to have received these images from the new owner of a Concordia 52 center cockpit, design #2515. The boat was constructed by Concordia Custom Yachts in 1988.

The following is an excerpt from our Designer's Comments regarding the design brief: "First, the boat should be a top performer under the IMS Rating Rule. The boat should be aesthetically pleasing with a timeless, classic appeal. Second, she should be a superior sea boat with major offshore racing and serious blue water cruising capability. Finally, in order to take advantage of Concordia's custom yacht building ability, we are to develop a series of suggested interior layouts and deck configurations".

Note the boat in the images is a center cockpit version.

Here is the general arrangement plan for the center cockpit boat.

And here is a profile, inboard profile and 2 general arrangement options for the aft cockpit version showing 2 different keel configurations. The middle arrangement looks to be an alternate for a center cockpit.

  1. Aesthetically pleasing? With that walk through/swim ladder/scoop/transom?

    Damn few aesthetically pleasing boats were designed and built after the end of the CCA rule. Some, but not many.

    And I'm a grumpy old man.
