Awab - Design 1459

I just love these old motorsailers. This boat is for a repeat client who built a very similar boat 19 years prior, design #247 also named Awab. She was built of wood by Henry L. Grebe & Company of Chicago, Illinois and launched in 1959.

Here are the plans.

Here's and article from the time of her construction.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 55'-9"
LWL 46'-6"
Beam 15'-2"
Draft 5'-0"
Displacement 57,664 lbs
Ballast 6,000 (outside) 500 lbs (inside)
Sail Area 1,232 sq ft


  1. Beautiful boat. Does someone know where it is and if it is for sale by any chance?
