Design 22 - El Nido


This 51' power yacht was built by Lemos Brothers of Rhode Island in 1936. The following article tells the story. Double click for readable view.


Here's an interior image.


I can see from the files that concurrent to the construction of this boat, a larger (58' LOA) version also named El Nido was being designed/built. Here it is, design #76.


Unfortunately for the bigger version there is an ominous note in the file that states "burned during construction".

Principal Dimensions
LOA 51'-0"
LWL 49'-6"
Beam 12'-6"
Draft 3'-8"
