Seawind - Design 1643

This is exactly the type of boat I would be perfectly happen to own: manageable size and a nice hard dodger to get out of the rain. She would be ideal for sailing in Maine. This boat was built by R. Swanson of New South Wales, Australia and launched in 1963. It looks like she is built of all local Australian woods: spotted gum for all structural members and planked with Huon pine.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 43'-1"
LWL 31'-9"
Beam 12'-0"
Draft 7'-0"
Displacement 29,670 lbs
Ballast 13,200 lbs
Sail Area 905 sq ft
