Design 1628 - Nova

Yesterday (see previous post) I made mention of Nova and how design #1718 was a further development of this design. Here she is. She is simply stunning and a very nice manageable size. Built by Driscoll of California, she was launched in 1961.

Here are the plans.

Here's a brief article.

And here she is today. A sister named Gamin was also built to this design.
