Design 2119 - Paxos

It's too bad we have no image of this nice looking one-tonner. Plaxos was built of wood by Cantiere Craglietto of Italy. She was launched in 1972. From the designer's comments: "Yachts to this design are building in several countries of wood, fiberglass and aluminum. To meet anticipated differing weather conditions, appropriate adjustment of ballast and sail area has been provided."

Here is the general arrangement plan.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 35'-4"
LWL 29'-0"
Beam 12'-3"
Draft 6'-5"
Displacement 14,180 lbs
Ballast 6,300 lbs
Sail Area 624 sq ft


  1. Here some nice images



  2. Is she composite (wood/aluminum) construction? Any information on her lower hull construction?

  3. Yes. If you zoom in on the sectional view of the general arrangement plan and the notes in the inboard profile view you will find the following notes:

    All floors to be cut from 1/4" thick aluminum alloy 5086 or 5083 & floors exceeding 18" width shall have a 1-1/2" welded flange on top.

    Planking to be triple skin 1/4" think (finished) each, glued on framed & between layers.
