Far Cry - Design 230

This design is labeled a motorsailer. I believe that's a "Far Cry" from correct. She's a motoryacht, with a steadying sail in my opinion. That array at the aft end of the pilothouse looks to be a set of outriggers in their stowed, upright position.

We don't know a lot about this boat. She was built by Mathis Yacht Building Company of Camden, New Jersey and launched in 1938.

Here's the arrangement plan.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 47'-4"
LWL 42'-0"
Draft 4'-6"
Beam 13'-1"
