Design 1245 - Stock Finisterre Type Centerboarder

This design, like a few others in our collection, is a development of the Finisterre design, #1054. Stock plan sets were developed regularly for buyers that could be purchased at reasonable cost and built in the yard of their choice. 16 boats were built to these plans at yards from the United States, France, Italy, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Hong Kong and Singapore. The plans were developed in 1967.

This is still a great design for stock production.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 39'-8"
LWL 27'-6"
Beam 11'-3"
Draft 3'-11" (board up)
Displacement 18,640 lbs
Ballast 5,860 lbs (outside) 300 lbs (inside)
Sail Area 760 sq ft
