Design 894 - Lyra

This little sloop was designed for John Trumpy, Jr. and built by John Trumpy & Sons of Annapolis for his own use, and to develop as a one design class of boats. We believe 3 or 4 boats were built to this design by Trumpy. That's one of the sisterships, Melita, above.

Here are the plans.

Here's a brief article from Yachting magazine about the boat. Double click for zoom.
