Timoneer - Design 2575

Of the big S&S motorsailers which include Osprey, Sea Angel, Freedom, Galileo, Astral and Mayslyph, Timoneer represents the ultimate refinement of the type. She was built by Palmer Johnson of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin and launched in 1992.

Once launched she made her way through Lakes Michigan, Huron and Erie, through the Erie Canal and made her way down the Hudson River and to the sea. She then embarked on a 65,000 mile, 5-year cruise.

Here are the plans.

Her elegant classic interior of American cherry was designed by John Munford. Here are some images.
