Design 2187 - Alcort Weekender

Anyone involved with sailing growing up in America probably knows Alcort as the makers of the Sunfish, a very simple boat introduced in 1952. We were commissioned by Alcort to develop the trailerable, fiberglass weekender that you see here. The year was 1973; 3 years after Alcort was taken over by AMF (American Machine and Foundry). The project never materialized.

Here's the general arrangement plan.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 24'-1"
LWL 19'-9"
Beam 7'-11"
Draft 3'-0"
Sail Area 145 sq ft

  1. Healed over, the Alcort Weekender wouldn't have had a whole lot of rudder in the water....
