Design 1713 - Kialoa II

Here's another of the big A class designs, but in aluminum which was done for weight savings. She was built by Yachting Dynamics of Torrance, California and launched in 1964.

Note the lack of teak decks, also for weight savings.

Here are the plans.

Here is an interior shot. There's that famous gimballing counter top over the galley.
