Design 280 - Cirrus

In the book You Are First by Francis S. Kinney, there is a chapter entitled Fourteen Good Clients. The chapter deals with repeat clients. The one client Frank fails to mention is Avard Fuller. Seven new boats were designed by the firm for Fuller during the period 1939 - 1960. This is the first.

Cirrus was built of wood by Henry Nevins of City Island, New York, launched in '39. Here's a design review from the period.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 33'-6"
LWL 26'-0"
Beam 8'-10"
Draft 5'-6"

For information's sake here is a list of other designs prepared for Fuller:
Design 341 - 18' Runabout
Design 367, 7'-10" Dinghy
Design 381, 57' Sloop Gesture
Design 622, 48'-9" Yawl Eroica
