Design 1579 - Discoverer


Back in March we posted an article about design #1492, sport fisherman Explorer. This beauty is a larger version built for the same client and by the same shipyard, Freeport Point Shipyard of Freeport Point, Long Island, New York. The boat was launched in 1960.

Here's a brief newspaper article about the boat, that tells the story. Please double click for zoom.


Here are the plans.


I've posted the Lines as they are really quite nice.
