Design 1092 - Tambo

This classy commuter yacht was designed for one James Moffett, New York of the Corn Products Company (now called CPC International). Looking at the history of Corn Products it seems they had a very large corn refinery in New Jersey so perhaps he used this boat to commute from his home in the the Battery to New Jersey.

She was built at the Krogerswerft Shipyard of Rendsburg, Germany and launched in 1954.

Power is derived from by twin Chrysler M45 (gasoline) marine engines producing 200 hp each at 3,800 rpm for a top speed of 19.6 knots.

Construction is white oak for framing, double planking with mahogany over cedar, canvas over plywood decks and silicon bronze fasteners.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 44'-6"
LWL 42'-0"
Beam 11'-8"
Draft 3'-11"
Displacement 22,150 lbs
