Design 1476 - Salmagal III

I think these boats with the recessed space at the end of the deckhouse are just fantastic. In most of our boats designed with this feature the bulkhead at the aft end of the house cuts right across one of the side windows. In this particular design three side windows were styled into the profile with a nice result. The aft bulkhead lands on the mullion between the aft two windows.

The helm seat on centerline is also a rarity in our designs. I have only found it in one other, yacht Jandy, design #1711. I believe this is feature first found in some designs by Uffa Fox and as confirmed by a reader of this blog.

Here's that helm seat.

And here's that great protected area aft of the house.

Here are the plans.

Salmagal II was built by the Robert Derecktor Shipyard of Mamaroneck, New York. She was constructed of wood in typical S&S scantlings. She was launched in 1960.

Here's an article about the boat. Double click for zoom.
