Design 11 - Alsumar

This design is not to be confused with design #26. This boat was built for a prominent member of American Yacht Club and built by Minneford Yacht Yard of City Island, New York. She was launched in 1931. You know a boat has been around a while when the file records her name(s) as Madeline, ex-Cayuga, ex-Windoon, ex-Restless IV, ex-Alsumar. We don't know her current name.

I have heard it said that this boat was a prototype of the New York 32 but I'm not convinced after reviewing the shape, the rig, layout and construction.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 44'-0"
LWL 30'-0"
Beam 9'-0"
Draft 6'-3"
Sail Area 829 sq ft


  1. She is at Taylor & Snediker in Pawcatuck, RI awaiting restoration by an irrational and foolish owner (me).

    1. will take the whole village to raise this child

  2. We enjoyed the boat for 23 years, never ended up in the water or on the rocks, a most beautiful sailer,,good luck ,Warren Woodard Baiting Hollow, NY
