Design 1536 - Cleopatra

This beautiful sport fisherman was built by Freeport Point Shipyard of Long Island, New York. To my eye she really is a nice looking boat. The boat was designed for a J. Lakin Baldridge of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, and an avid fisherman. She was designed for day fishing and a rare overnighter.

She was constructed of white oak framing and mahogany planking and launched in November, 1959. Power is derived from twin GM 4-53 diesel engines generating 120 hp each and resulting in a top speed of 19 mph, and a cruising speed of 15 mph.

Here is a nice launch sequence for when the boat arrived in Bermuda.

Here are the plans.

And an article from Yachting magazine.
