Design 2669 - Barbara Ann

Since I seem to be on a roll with the Aerorig boats (see previous posting), here's the other one. The image above is the day of her launch. Named Barbara Ann, she was built by Covey Island Boatworks of Nova Scotia, and launched in 2002.

She is designed with an intricate space frame pilothouse and the effect is quite dramatic. Here's a detail shot.

Where Blue Sky Messenger is completely devoid of winches on deck, Barbara Ann has just one, for the mainsheet (Blue Sky Messenger uses a captive winch in the engine room).

Here are the plans.

Here's an article about the boat from Yachting Magazine. Double click for bigger view.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 52'-0"
LWL 46'-3"
Beam 14'-11"
Draft 6'-9" (dagger board up) 9'-9" (dagger board down)
Displacement 37,600 lbs
