Design 121 - Pequino

This design takes us back to 1936. It is a very early motorsailer design, built at the M. M. Davis & Son Shipyard of Solomons Island, Maryland.

It's an interesting general arrangement. The steering station is in fact just abaft the mast in the superstructure just over the main weather deck. The raised portion of the deckhouse is where I would have expected to find it. Upon close inspection the upper portion of the deckhouse is in fact the galley. I can't imagine why they would have given the paid hand the best view in the house!

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 60'-6"
