Design 2076 - Topaz


This 1/2-Tonner was built by Abeking & Rasmussen of Lemwerder, Germany. She was launched in 1970. Her construction is a bit unusual: there is a laminated keelson over which a bronze substructure resides with partial transverse frames bolted to laminated transverse frames and conventional double planking. I wish we had an image or two as she must be a very good looking yacht.

Here is the construction plan.


Principal Dimensions
LOA 30'-0"
LWL 23'-3"
Beam 9'-6"
Draft 5'-3"
Displacement 7,225 lbs
Ballast 3,400 lbs
Sail Area 389 sq ft
