Design 1707 - Thunder

This pretty yawl was built of wood by Smith & Rhuland of Nova Scotia. She was launched in 1961. She is pretty standard but I do like the full height engine room separating the head, galley, main and aft cabins. This is convenient for the engine room air, which draws in/exhausts through small cowl ventilators located in the cabin top. The navigation table is located in the after face of this enclosure on the centerline allowing good communication between navigator and helmsman.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 45'-0"
LWL 30'-4"
Beam 11'-0"
Draft 6'-5"
Displacement 25,075 lbs
Ballast 9,250 lbs
Sail Area 914 sq ft
