Design 1871 - Seguin

This beautiful sloop was built by Paul Luke of East Boothbay, Maine and launched in 1965. I caught this image while cruising around Penobscot Bay a couple of summers ago. There's nothing like a bright finished mahogany hull.

Here are the plans.

The "designer's comments" from the time of her launch are as follows: "Seguin is designed essentially for cruising, though she incorporates many of the lessons learned in ocean racing by the owner and designers. She is not loaded down with electrical and mechanical gadgetry and has the independent nature that a true cruising boat should have".

Her construction is white oak for stem and transverse framing, a laminated mahogany keelson, double planking of cedar and mahogany and a plywood deck.
