Witch of the Wave - Design 1580

This sport fisherman was built and launched in 1960 by the Thomas Knutson yard of Huntington, Long Island. She is constructed of wood, double planked of mahogany over cedar.

From the sea trial data we can see she achieved 17.2 knots with twin Chrysler Imperial M/81 gasoline engines each generating 225 hp at 4,000 rpm.

Here are the plans.

Here are some fairly contemporary shots taken by Billy Black at our 75th Anniversary Celebration at Mystic Seaport in 2004. The boat is now called Grey Fox.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 44'-11"
LWL 42'-0"
Beam 12'-9"
Draft 2'-11"
Displacement 26,788 lbs
