Buzzy III - Design 1151

This beautiful 6-meter was built of wood by J.J. Taylor & Sons of Canada. She was launched in 1956. She was a very successful racing yacht in Canadian waters.

In 1971 she was modified by S&S to upgrade her shape, based in great part on advances in 12-meter design. Here's the modification to her Lines.

Here she is after her restoration in 2002. Note the owner has returned her to the original shape.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 37'-0"
LWL 23'-8"
Beam 6'-0"
Draft 5'-5"
