Design 1492 - Explorer


This sport fisherman was designed for use in the Mediterranean. The boat was built by Freeport Point Shipyard of Freeport, Long Island and launched in the summer of '59. She is powered by twin GM Series 71 diesels, producing a maximum speed of 10.5 knots and a cruising speed of 9 knots. Unfortunately we have no images of this nice looking boat.

Here is the general arrangement plan.


And here's an article from Yachting magazine, from 1959.
