Adventuress - Design 1484


Adventuress was built by Norman H. Hodgdon, Jr. of Boothbay Harbor, Maine. She was penned by the talented Francis Kinney when he was with Sparkman & Stephens and launched in 1958. Construction is as typical: oak structure and single planked in mahogany. Fastenings are of Everdur.


The design is a descendant of the Gulf Stream 30 (design #1147), with a longer bow overhang and deeper draft.
