Design 322 - Raceabout

This one-design keel boat was designed as a simplified alternative to the Star Class. The first boat was built by the Minneford Yacht Yard of City Island, New York.

Here is a copy of the brochure showing the basic proportions.

This article tells the story better than I can. Double click for bigger view.

We don't know how many boats were built to this design. I think it's clear that this design never usurped the appeal and popularity of the Star Class.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 23'-0"
LWL 19'-4"
Beam 5'-8"
Draft 3'-4"
