Design 2169 - Rawson 40

Here's a design that was never built. The work was commissioned by Ron Rawson, Inc. of Redmond, Washington. Rawson was known as an early pioneer in building commercial fishing vessels in fiberglass. He transitioned to yacht construction and did produce a number of models by designers such as Bill Garden, Ben Seaborn and Bill Luders. This project never got off the ground. The year was 1973.

Here's the general arrangement plan. This design has Rod Stephens' influence all over it. This was the type of boat he felt was ideal as a cruising boat, suitable for three couples and offering complete privacy for the owner.

LWL 31'-0"
Beam 12'-0"
Draft 6'-8"
Displacement 23,000 lbs
