Design 2184 - Tartan T.O.C.K.

This design has Rod Stephens' imprint all over it. Rod was a huge fan of the big, beamy, center cockpit ketch as a cruising boat. This looks like a natural development of two previous designs: Yankee, design #1278 and Torea, design #1927.

The T.O.C.K. (Tartan Offshore Cruising Ketch) was put into production in 1976 for short run that lasted two years. 30 boats were produced.

The boats must be fun to sail, especially with the cockpit so far forward.

Here are the plans.

Here's an interior shot. Just look at the volume.
