Design 2302 - Tartan Ten

Here is the Tartan Ten. Developed in 1976, the T-10 was developed as a racing/cruising/daysailing boat that was not designed to any specific rule. She was designed as a boat with an enormous cockpit and minimal interior, yet still sleeps six.

A prototype was constructed by Handy Boats of Falmouth, Maine using wood-Epoxy construction methods. From this prototype a plug was made. The boat was extremely popular with over 400 boats being built. The boats remain popular with large racing fleets still active today, especially in the Mid-West.

The boats are constructed of solid skin fiberglass laminate, longitudinal stringers and with cored fiberglass decks. They are virtually "bullet proof".

Here are the plans.

More information can be found here on the T-Ten National Class website.

Design 1711 - Jandy

Jandy was designed and built in the winter of 1962 and launched in the spring of 1963. Her builder was the Vic Franks Boat Company of Seattle, Washington. She is constructed of Alaskan cedar over white oak framing.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

It's a very well thought out interior. Interesting to see a 2 head boat at 48' overall.

The general arrangement shown above is a fairly high resolution image so you should be able to click on it, open in another window and zoom in quite far. I will draw your attention to the somewhat unusual (at least for S&S) steering arrangement. The boat features a wheel steerer. The wheel is located between a binnacle and a helm seat on centerline. The wheel is angled aft and the wheel shaft passes through a bulkhead steerer mounted in the face of the seat bottom. At the base of the steering wheel shaft is a conventional chain sprocket and it in turn is lead to the quadrant by chain/wire. I wonder if the owner was perhaps a handicapped sailor or just requested this type of arrangement?

Design 2193 - Impala 41 Class

Here's another with no photographs on file, unfortunately. She must be quite a beauty. Impala was built by Cantiere Navale Castiglione of Italy on a production basis between 1973-1984. I have no idea how many were built. She is constructed of solid fiberglass laminate with multiple longitudinal foam hat-section stringers. This is the second boat designed for this shipyard by Sparkman & Stephens.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

Okay so I pinched this fairly low quality image off the Internet.

Restoration Complete

This beautiful boat makes her home in New Zealand. She was built by Brin Wilson who has built a handful of Sparkman & Stephens boats and is considered one of the premiere boatbuilders of New Zealand. She is constructed of wood and was launched in 1970.

Design 2326 - Götz von Berlichingen

That's a mouthful. Click here for the background on this yacht's complicated name. This aluminum ketch was built by the Dubbel & Jesse Shipyard of Norderney, Germany. She was launched in 1982. The client was a previous owner of a Swan 65. His design brief was extensive and the resulting boat is an interesting study. In part some of the interior and exterior details were a result of his interior designer, Heinz Voller of Germany.

The boat is powered by twin Perkins 6354 diesel engines generating 120 hp each.

Here are the plans.

LOA 66'-11"
LWL 49'-0"

Design 2203 - Come on Daddy

This boat is described as a Utility Powerboat. The boat was built in a joint venture with Dramiscotta Boat Works building the aluminum hull and deck and Wayfarer Marine of Camden, Maine finishing the boat. The boat was delivered in 1975. The boat was designed and built for Thomas J. Watson, Jr. of IBM. The last we knew of her is she has been renamed Termigant and makes her home in Fishers Island, New York.

Power is derived from twin Westerbeke 6-346 marine diesels generating 115 hp each for a top speed of 12 knots.

Here are the plans.

This 45' I.O.R. racing yacht was built by Clare Lallow of Cowes, England for Admiral's Cup racing. She is constructed of wood: single planked in mahogany over white oak framing. She was launched in 1970. An exact sistership was built a year later but I can't tell who built it or where.

Far Cry - Design 230

This design is labeled a motorsailer. I believe that's a "Far Cry" from correct. She's a motoryacht, with a steadying sail in my opinion. That array at the aft end of the pilothouse looks to be a set of outriggers in their stowed, upright position.

We don't know a lot about this boat. She was built by Mathis Yacht Building Company of Camden, New Jersey and launched in 1938.

Here's the arrangement plan.
