Design 1757 - Carillon

Three boats were built to this design. The first was Carillon, built by Robert E. Derecktor of Mamaroneck, New York. All three were constructed of aluminum. Carillon was launched in 1964.

Here's the second, yacht Alpha, built by Stephens Marine of Stockton, California and launched in 1966. She is identical but with 1,000 lbs of ballast added for the stiffer winds of San Fransisco.

The third was Lightnin', also built by Stephens Marine and launched in '67.

Here are the plans.

Here's an image of a model of Alpha. It's a nice model and shows a lot of deck detail.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 47'-5"
LWL 33'-0"
Beam 11'-9"
Draft 6'-9"
Displacement 28,557 lbs
Ballast 11,000 lbs
Sail Area 1,001 sq ft


  1. the third was Bohemia not Lightnin'. Bohemia was also built by Stephens Marine and is still sailing. Carillon had a new S & S designed fin and skeg keel in 1967 and was converted to a yawl rig. Carillon was recently recommissioned after spending 17 years in the Derecktor shed in Mamaroneck. She is currently for sale on yachtworld http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/boatFullDetails.jsp?boat_id=2448337&ybw=&units=Feet&currency=USD&access=Public

  2. Any word on how one could find out if Carillon is still for sale? I can't find her on Yachtworld

  3. I purchased her several months ago
