Design 1777 - Assegai II

This little R.O.R.C. sloop was built by the Berthon Boat Company of Lymington, England. She was constructed of wood and launched in 1965. She's a nice looking boat and very typical of this period with attached rudder and every effort made to reduce wetted surface. She looks rather slippery in these images.

Here are the plans.

Two sisters were built as well. Design #1777-C1, and named Aja was built by Bröderna Martinsson Varvs AB of Sweden. The third, design #1777-C2 and named Illiria was built by Cantiere Carlini of Italy. These boats were reconfigured with a different interior layout, separated rudder and traditional transom. Here are the revised plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 40'-10"
LWL 29'-0"
Beam 10'-8"
Draft 6'-7"
Displacement 19,580 lbs
Ballast 9,000 lbs
Sail Area 694 sq ft
