Design 1752 - Eskasoni

This snazzy motorsailer was built to extremely high standards by the Berthon Boat Works of Lymington, England. She was constructed of wood using very typical S&S scantlings and materials. Her main weather deck was plywood but covered in fiberglass. She was launched in 1965.

  1. Interesting to note from her plans she also had a centreplate, presumably to assist windward performance. Unusual for a motorsailer of that era.
