Design 1330 - Madrigal

Image Courtesy of Benjamin Mendlowitz

This nice looking yawl was built by Paul E. Luke of East Boothbay, Maine. She has been in the same family since her launch in 1958. There is something "just right" about her profile and sheer line.

Here are the plans. The layout is just fantastic.

It is interesting to note that these plans were utilized for a sistership named Leventades. You can see from the following image that she is a flush deck version with dog house well aft.

Leventades was built by Cantieri Costaguta of Genova-Voltri, Italy.
