Design 1883 - Black Jack


Here's a boat with a very successful racing career. She was designed with more than racing in mind. Her interior looks conducive to cruising as well. The boat was designed for East Coast/Long Island Sound racing but capable of offshore races such the Newport-Bermuda Race.

Black Jack was built of welded aluminum by Robert E. Derecktor of Mamaroneck, New York. She was launched in 1968.

Here is the general arrangement plan. The arrangement of the chart table and navigator's berth with generous space is worthy of note.


Principal Dimensions
LOA 44'-10"
LWL 31'-0"
Beam 11'-6"
Draft 6'-6"
Displacement 21,500 lbs
Ballast 9,600 lbs
Sail Area 880 sq ft
