Design 1879 - Glasspar 14' Dinghy

In 1966 we were commissioned to design 3 sizes of fiberglass dinghies for the Glasspar boatbuilding company of Costa Mesa, California. Here is the first with a length overall of 14'.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

None of the 3 models ever went into production. Glasspar seems to have completely focused on powerboats. Please note the draftsman for these plans was the very talented Germán Frers, Jr.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 14'-0"
LWL 12'-5"
Beam 5'-2"
Draft 0'-7" (board up) 3'-5" (board down)
Sail Area 109 sq ft
